  1. So, this is likely a stupid question... But, how important is the clear mechanical box? Thanks! Skip
  2. We received the model last week and started (slowly) building. We are having a blast doing this. I put an Axial 55T motor in with (I think?) the faster gearing (20T/65T). I also have a 35T motor on the way, for the future... I have some green slime and the Tamiya (#53574) clear o-rings coming for the shocks. Hoping I can keep them from leaking... I need to buy a steering servo. Is it OK to just buy a highly rated one of Amazon - there seems to be many in the $15-20 range? Or is there some specific spec to look for? (I searched, but didn't find anything.) Also, anyone know if Tamiya Buggy Champ tires will fit on the Scorcher? Couldn't find that answer by searching either. @moffman thanks for the tip on straightening the brass link. I was looking at that wondering if the rear was too soft and how to correct... Thanks all, Skip
  3. Thanks guys. This is exceptionally helpful!!
  4. Greetings! I never had r/c stuff as a kid, so all this is very new to me. I've ordered a Sand Scorcher, metal chases, sealed bearings, stainless screws & such, and some other stuff. Going to build this with my young (6) son. I've been researching best I can, but still have a few basic questions I was hoping someone might be able to help with... Can anyone recommend a radio? Or is this one "good enough"? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005EFZBB4/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 I'd like to start with a much slower speed (so my son can learn). Can I put any 540 motor in this? Maybe a 50 turn "crawler" motor? Or have I completely missed it? Battery recommendation? Long run time would be a bonus. For LiPo, I'd need to upgrade the ESC, right? I would very much appreciate any other pointers. I really have no idea what I'm getting in to! Thank you much! Skip
