    the servos on these are gigantic turds. throw them away as soon as you get the truck. otherwise, same advice for every newbie with a crawler: get new tires, add weight to them, and redistribute the weight on the chassis.

    tires and servos have been mentioned, but with the rs10 you should also replace the plastic axle gears with a set of metal gears, they can be found on ebay for less than $20 a set, you will need 2 sets.

    One of the things I did with my rockslide is change the steering linkage to improve approach angle, and to keep from bending the tie rod
