  1. *Bad word* you! I had convinced myself NOT to get the Blue Ed. Brat... now I am back to wanting one! Awesome work, as always!
  2. Uncle Bob here... That's what I did to use the RC4WD motors. I didn't even solder on the new ends, just did the simple crimp on ends. It was on an 80T, and I figured this thing isn't going fast or pulling a lot of amperage, so good enough.
  3. I can confirm the problem he is running into. I picked up a couple of RC4WD crawler motors, and they absolutely do have smaller leads than the 1060 esc I attempted to plug them into. IIRC, I measured them at 3.5mm. I have run into this with a couple a BL items also.
  4. I think all three are going to happen. Everyone is a different stage in their life during this process. I think it will benefit both buyers and sellers.
  5. Lol! That was information I didn’t know! I bought mine for my Stampede, not my Clod. But glad I know now!
  6. Yes, the factory painted Bigfoot bodies come with the holes pre-drilled. The clear bodies do not have the holes, as far as I know.
  7. How "little" is your grandson?! I have both a Clod and Stampede, and the Stampede is far and away the better driving experience. The Stampede would be recommendation. You can get one RTR cheaper than all the others mentioned. They also seem to hold their value better, just in case grandson gets bored with it. I am running a mild brushless setup on 2S and I just turn it down and let my 4 year old go nuts with it. The absolute must-do with the Stampede is to upgrade the plastic castor blocks to aluminum. They are guaranteed to bend and in turn bend the pin in them. Traxxas also runs their own battery plug. Not sure how that will come into play for you, but it should be known. I do want to get a MB/Blackfoot just to compare the driving experiences. I should be picking up a WR-01 on Monday also for a (hopefully) good price.
  8. In all honesty, I got my Black simply because it was a "special edition". That stemmed from when I was looking around for a pink metallic body set for a TT-02B. Couldn't find one anywhere. When I got my DT-03 I got the green metallic special, just to have the special body and wheels. It also doesn't hurt that the DT-03 and Clod special editions were actually cheaper than the standard versions at the time of purchase.
  9. I think it looks really good with the black!! At the very least on par with the original chrome.
  10. Thank you. Not worth putting any effort into.
  11. Title says it all. I looked around the net and couldn't find anything. It's cheap, local, and I am just curious how the rear diff/trans might be on it. TIA
  12. I don't have an XV01, but I most of my packs are the same style as above, with the plug in lead style. I have a couple of full size packs, and several shorty packs in the same setup. Having several different chassis I have a different lead for the specific chassis. Very handy. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/graphene-4600mah-2s2p-hardcase-shorty-w-5mm-female-bullet-connector.html?queryID=891b304b54578dcb4c833096d6f065e9&objectID=45469&indexName=hbk_live_magento_en_us_products https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-nano-tech-ultimate-4600mah-2s2p-90c-hardcase-lipo-short-pack-roar-brca-approved.html?queryID=3cd04ec92f504c3fc3e0d7fce69b872d&objectID=30790&indexName=hbk_live_magento_en_us_products https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-nano-tech-shorty-4200mah-2s2p-65-130c-hardcase-lipo-pack-roar-approved.html?queryID=8cc2080109fe5dd51806badd4e24cdf5&objectID=30789&indexName=hbk_live_magento_en_us_products I have one of each of these. They last as long as I need them too for the most part. CC01, 201, Stampede, Desert Fox, just to name a few that I use them in. I don't know the exact battery compartment on an XV01, but they might be a good option.
  13. I've wanted one too. That is a good price. Dang...
