So Arrma seen this an went with what they thought people would want? I really am not to worried there is so many 80 budget amp esc's on the market that can be had for 50 shipped or less. I just have read a few posts where people have said the rtr price has become a lot less vs the V1 granite. A long with that i see some people have said the electronics are better an some of the known issues like the dog bones are longer etc but with some of these fixes/upgrades the truck lost some metal chassis parts etc I just wonder how some thing can get better in rtr form an go down in price vs what was on the market just a few months ago. .When people started changing the BLX80 they all went to 60 amp ESC.
Sorry to hear your issues with ya LHS. I pretty much know what i am doing its just i have a lot of nitro exp behind me an the modern electric cars/trucks an electronics i am not up to date. I tend to use youtube to learn an just kill time watching old school racing from the late 80's an early 90's . The good ol days i got in to this hobby late 90's with a first gen stadium blitzer i had to build an it was real fun then switched to nitros a few months later. As far asYou'll get more time outta a 3s going a bit slower than a bigger 2s. You can buy the bumper from the t bone website with a credit card.
Sorry your lhs sucks. I found each store has its perks and quirks....my favorite is good for modding stuff and has a lot of old rc heads. Full of theory and explanations But sucks if you want basic plastics bearings or talk to the wrong person.
The other has no old rc heads all kids mainly traxxas....I find that the other is great if I wanna follow the books need a plastic bit or bearing.
If there isn't 1 redeeming quality of your lhs I would suggest watching about 10 r so YouTube videos by squirrell rc and amazon
I have no issues with my lhs they just have their quirks... Its actually a pretty happy medium.... As far as dye goes I've seen it done...never to a lighter color than it started but seen it... But the color is the last reason I buy rpm regardless.
I put stickers on my granite chassis to make it look like sponsor stickers on the bottom half of monster trucks.
But anyway 60a escs suck. If you do drive with one make sure it has a fan If you brake or launch a bunch you'll feel why
