    I decided to go with the Losi single speed over the dudes, didn't see any big advantage to his other than me missing an extra $20 over the Losi, lol. If there were moving parts involved or something I would have taken his, but this is a pretty damn simple piece. ;)

    Picked up my pinion and battery tray from RC Monster on Friday and picked up a Mamba Monster ESC this morning.

    Really only need a battery charger now! And a Castle Link programmer.
