    In 08 bought my first higher end RC, a Traxxas Revo 3.3 RTR.

    It wasn't too long after the throttle servo took a dump, replaced with a JRRacing 650m replaced the reverse servo once, with another traxxas one, after I broke it. (pushed a little too hard, whoops!)

    after a long day in the park, after installing a 40t spur gear, ended up stripping the teeth off after breaking the motor mount, somehow...

    After this the car sat idle for about 8 months and I decided to finish my Crowd Pleazer 2.0.

    Next, I installed a traxxas spool in the front last week, and after 3 tanks of back yard cruising, tore up a stock driveshaft...

    So after a trip to Colerain Hobbies, my lhs, I picked up a set of these:

    and going to refill my shocks with fresh 50w.

    I know its nothing spectacular, but its a start!

    Well after refilling the shocks, filling the differentials with wheel bearing grease and cleaning most of the parts, I snapped some pics of the cvds installed.

    Built a stand today out of 1/2 sch 40 pvc pipe, turned out fairly well. Should be able to get it out today and maybe get a few videos up of it!

    Coming along very nicely, I think that's the best way to go at it. Unless you got plenty of disposable income, upgrade parts you break.

    agreed, I have a hard time spending money on things if the originals arent broken or really hurting performance. Especially in a hobby where things break, alot.
