    Are you going to put IRC big bore shocks on? If you haven't thought about I think they are worth every penny

    Nice. I think IRC shocks rock. I really like the 8mm shock shafts. Very strong. You can still bend them but they are much tougher. The shock pistons are also thicker making them more reliable then hpi. I used to keep putting the piston rod through the pistons. It used to just fold them in half if I had the damping too high and got massive air time. You won't do that to the IRC shocks

    For bashing I think they are worth every penny and to be fair, I would pay twice that for them having now used them the way I do.

    do you have your lights wired so they flash when the killswitch kicks in mate ?
    might just be low battery,

    and are the front wheels on the ground when your working the steering or are they off the deck ?
    if there off the deck thentry em on the floor and see if they will turns to full lock,
    but looks like low battery to me

    No i dont have a kill switch yet.The lights are wired to the aux slot from the receiver using Y cables.The wheels are on the floor.Charging the battery as we speaking,by this stage it has in it around 3000 mah so it might be the battery

    Battery is fully charged,everything is workin alright,still when steering,the lights are going down a litle.So i am thinking that 4 lights is to much for a chanel?
