Im sure we’ll see a lot of Fireteam builds in the future! I got 3 during the sale my brother took one .still have one in the box for a future build. I’ve been driving the sh$t out of mine!!Lay it on us…. Beef cake kit? 8S Monster motor? Do tell from a Fireteam owner!
I’ll post pics of everything that I’ve gotten already and I’m still waiting on quite a few of other things to arrive. I kinda jumped into the deep end of the pool with both feet on this one. I just got started back into the hobby after reaching 50 and I might’ve bitten off more than I can chew
I was thinking about using a hw 1650 max 6 and I have the hw 1100 max 5. Must admit that I haven’t built a rc since the 80’s when all you could buy was kits so who knows how this may go.
I’ve had it since July. I’m stating that I haven’t built anything since the 80’s.Enjoy...
Maybe drive it as is to get a feel for it first before upgrades to see what "you" need to upgrade for your style. It is an awesome rig as it.
It’ll ALL come back to ya and you’ll be bashin and crashin before we know it!I’ve had it since July. I’m stating that I haven’t built anything since the 80’s.

Been there, done that.I haven’t gotten to far in the build yet because I believe that I got in over my head with building one without much knowledge of it. I have got the chassis switched out but one of the factory shock bolts was stripped out so it fell apart and once I got it out everything kinda went everywhere so I’m trying to recall how everything went back together by my somewhat memory
step 1 is to disassemble, I’d say step 1 is complete! Step 2 is the tricky part…Like I’ve said a little over my head

Yea I have magnetic trays it’s trying to remember how everything goes back togetherYou need some little plastic clear trays in various sizes so you can group parts with their screws IMO. It also helps keep your work area cleaner if you can put stuff in small trays, then put all those little trays you don't need into a big cardboard box or plastic tub.
I have a few magnetic trays and a small container with 7 different plastic trays in it but I need more and am thinking about ordering a bulk set of something like this from Amazon:
