I bought an Element Gatekeeper in the Black Friday sales after studying the topic for perhaps two weeks. I was such a mega-noob idiot that I kept calling it an "Element Gateway," for some unknown reason.
Perhaps senility is setting in?
Anyway, I messed up the left front tire and had to take it off and remount it... Probably not too big of an effort, but I managed to strip out a screw on the beadlock somehow.
I notice the car is truly gifted...
At flipping on its roof.
A bunch of retailers offer heavyweight metal suspension and wheel parts, which I will be buying soon.
Last night I installed a Hobbywing Fusion Pro 2300 kv motor in it. I almost did it all correctly, except for inserting the servo and ESC plugs in backward. That somehow did not result in catastrophe, because Hobbywing sees guys like me coming from 200 miles away, and makes the whole system "idiot proof." I took it into the cold night air last night and was amazed at the low-speed control, the insane punch, the blazing top speed and the quietness of the rig.
