OK i started out with a PTI 12 pro when i got it new in the box i see it has many flaws so i got right to work.





Frist thing i did was replace some links to start with just the uper because im geting custom made bent lower links when doing this i see the stock rod ends are junk they are like a hard plastic can brake realy easy so im now changing over to traxxas rod ends.





next came a new moter and esc i went all out and got the novak brushless goat system



when that did not do the job i went with an HPI gear reduction unit


I still have more parts in the mail like the rocker rims that are 1lb each and my chisel G8 tires ill up date with pics when get the rest of my parts

the novak system has some real torq but unless you have some realy low gearing it cogs at low speeds and feels like gliching but the run time and power are unmached
