Further Description/Back Story This was my first hobby grade RC car. I fell in love with the sport! I started simple with replacing the axles with steel CV ones, then I would break arms, so I would upgrade to HD arms. Eventually I would keep braking different parts and I would upgrade with better parts. I'm finally able to say my build is complete and bash proof! This car is a blast at the skatepark, construction site, and race track. This car started it all for me. I have now owned an XO-1, Arrma big rock v3, Arrma Outcast 8s, Axial SCX24, and a custom built slash 2wd. I'm not stopping anytime soon! I also have a youtube channel to share my passion with other bashers. RCnurse!
