Thanks guys. I think I just traded off the LST2 for a like new TXT-1 with a EVX2 ESC and HiTec 645MG servo. We made the deal beginnings tonite via email and tomorrow we are gonna hash out all the details over the phone. I keep my Airtronics MX-3 rafio and reciever, the C10 lid and the brand new 1 1/2 tak old modded HPI K4.6 HO motor and he gets the old stock lid and the Losi 427 mill with 3 gallons on it and the rest of the stuff that goes with it.

Nice trade, since you were able to keep the motor and body!

It seams like you are a fan of the TLT shocks. Is it because of the appearance or do you like how they work? I have never seen a set in person.

Its because they were cheap, lol. I bought 12 of them NIP off RCC for $25 shipped. They work OK, better then the friction pogo sticks that they replaced.

Cheap is good. :lol: The stock shocks on the clod do suck. Post your impressions of the TXT when you get it. I am curious as to how you like it versus the clod and blackfoot.

You bet I will, gladly. I love both my Blackfoot and Clod very much and this will be just as much fun. Especially since it already has a EVX2 ESC so I can run 14.4v of POWAH. I will be keeping the stock motors as they 1. perform great with that much juice. 2. Come with the truck and will not cost me anything extra. 3. are cheap to replace and 4. they will run forever on a pair of standard 2400-3600 batteries, as thats all I have right now.

My Clod is a blast on the stock motors with 14.4v of power.

Wow, that is fast for stock 540's. They must get blazing hot! I wonder how long they will last running them like that?

Honestly, they do not get any hotter then the stock motor in my sons hornet does. After a full run you can touch them for about 5 seconds before I can stand it, though my hands are gnarly calouses lol.

There are ways of dealing with the stock spring shocks to make them work better. You can install lighter shocks, or the cheapest and easiest thing to do is enlarge the breather hole in the rim of the tire just a bit until the truck quits bouncing so bad. You can get an inch of travel out of them by leaving out the rubber bumper on the inside, as well as cutting off the snap fit nub off the cap and gluing the cap in place. I did this to one of my rigs and it makes a huge difference in articulation and performance. 8)
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Nice rigs, I really like the paint on the C10, it would look great on your new clod chassis
