    Already planning upgrades lol.
    First upgrade will be a new lipo battery. The NiMh 7.2v 1800mah is pretty weak for a 4x4 truck. Also looking at getting castle creations brushless system and a slipper clutch.
    Looking at the proline chevy silverado hd body with some proline trencher tires.
    I always welcome ideas if anyone out there has some good upgrade thoughts, or even if you know some obscure parts/bodies that would help to make a great basher.

    So far I love it. It has some minor issues. The supplied battery is pretty weak. It doesn't come with any tools. ( no tire wrench or turnbuckle wrench) While not a big deal for seasoned R/Cist, these are big issue for me lol. I haven't had the first mechanical issue with it yet. I have but about ten packs through it so far and its handled like a dream from the get go. Besides the run time i cant really find anything wrong with it. It's pretty durable, my two year old drags it around the house like its a tonka truck and hasn't broken anything yet. That's even after he has landed on it, tripped over hit, sat on it, and even thrown it over the baby gates a few dozen times..... For an entry level tuck/ basher, i think it lives up to it claims with flying colors. I am anxious to get some hop ups and see how it fairs against a slash or sc-10.

    Upgrades

    Have you done any upgrades to you Hunter yet? If so, what have you done?
    What batteries can I use to extend runtime?

    Hey, wondering how your truck is doin. I'm thinking of picking one of these up but would like to know your experience, especially with availability of replacement parts and general durability.

    Thanks in advance and any one else with hunter experience feel free to chime in.

    I just googled this truck to look at the drive train and found there is a brushless version with a 3970 kv motor . DHK Hunter BL SCT 1/10 4x4 Brushless - No Battery/Charger
    it makes me think the drive train will be up to par for a similar castle brushless setup ..on 2s anyway the sct 3800kv combo would be a nice race legal setup but is capped at 2s ... other combos will allow higher voltages .

    For the price I really like the look of it. I'm just afraid getting a arms and stuff will suck. There's a notification on all dhk products at Asiatees about how they can't sell dhk stuff in the us because of distribution rights and all the other stores I'm finding parts at are completely unfamiliar to me.

    Thin sends up a big red flag and makes me nervous.
