Re: What are some of your other hobbies?
I too would rather do the entire build and was a little surprised to find few cars come this way. I think it used to be the norm, now it's no longer available. The first time I snapped the pivot point for the throttle on the trans housing of my Jato I did the same thing.... Several hours later (it was my first time..) it was fixed, had I built the car from scratch, I could have done the job in ~ and hour.
Do get the 3.3 motor..... It is really a huge step up!
We'll see how Traxxas handles my email. To date they have been great to deal with and I love my car/truck from them. If they handle this well, they will have me for life!
