How did you color it?
Used a small can of red oil base I had. Foam brush and just dabbed it onto the fake bead locks on the rim. I'm sure I will tear it up my next time out but that's the fun of it I guess!!!

We'll see...... Work seems to get in the way of all the fun in life! Lol
Helluva thing when they do not comprehend the extraordinary act of squeezing a Tx and executing a perfect take off and 10.0 landing should take presidence over some awful work task...

Going to BBQ in a local park for Memorial Day. Hopefully get some RC time while I'm there with the nephews. New addition of theirs is an ECX Torrent. All newbie stuff..... But we have fun!

Sounds great!
I'm trying to bait my nephews into this sick world of RC.
It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it!

Great grip with the Anacondas on the street but the rounded style of the tread pattern definitely gives it more body roll. (I will try to stiffen up the shocks) Overall, its been a great setup for the street though.

Very nice upgrades!! On mine I swapped the shock oil to 40wt/500cSt on all 4 and also put a ~3mm clip to pre-load the front springs and it helped significantly with body roll

Thanks. I actually just got some 40wt.... But I will have to try the bigger preload on the front.
I should've just bought the BLX cause this crazy addiction has me headed that way. Lol. Figured I'd make it stronger before I spring for the brushless setup.

I had similar thoughts (just buying BLX versions) but I end up replacing/upgrading so much (asides from what gets broken) over time, that I was happy to buy my Raider & Fury so cheap to start.. at least this way the ESC/Motor I've pulled to replace with BL wasn't already an expensive BL system, etc..

I hear you on the cheap to start. $150 is hard to beat. Plus, sometimes I think I enjoy the mechanic part of it more than the driving.
