Me, prototype tester.

HPP Germany sent me a sample set of their new wheel hubs which finally deals with the annoying wobble of the wheels that occur with the standard hubs after some time. Video HERE.

HPP Germany specialize in tweaking and optmising crucial parts of  Traxxas vehicles which are just not that good stock (or are absent like the motor-brace).

Update: the wheel hubs are currently on hold until they find a proper partner for serial production.

Broke. My. Pinion. *hint* by overtightening – now that’s something new (for me)!

So history repeats itself, heh? The same in green? Or in blue? Black is the old Orange? *sighs* yes. It is _SO_ so. Stock body, stock tires, stock stock. And then the Pro-Line Slipstream, new tires, hop-ups and so on… I’m just glad to be able to use most of the standard 3.3 parts (pushrods, steering links, axles, tires, body mounts, etc.) for the E-Revo, too. I did know beforehand it would be an expensive hobby, I did know it before…

So well.
