T maxx .15 help! -newbie-

Well i think i need to do some upgradeing to my truck. Just want some advice.

My Truck - T maxx .15 Original everything + Dual Chrome Exaust

First i wont be doing much raceing with this truck. Maybe the occasional run my buddie's electric over. We dont have any hobbie shops or enthusants around here.

Second i would like to be able to run off road. I would love to just run right in my backyard and threw the ditch onto the road (gravel).


Right now i can barely keep the thing running. Several problems are contributing to this. Here is my questions and concerns. Any help is very appericated!
1. Im still learning about RC cars. Tuneing/Setup's
2. I think most of my problem is that the car isnt tuned.
I am just now completing a huge cleaning this truck needed since i
bought it. This should fix alot of my pull start trouble. Allready it 'rolls
over' better. Also i got an air filter for the darn thing.
3. Maybe i need to ditch the custom dual chrome exaust?
4. Shocks? Motor? New servo for turning? Turn buckles?
Everything is in decent condition. But anything that is steel (except
the motor) is rusted. Including all the ball joints. Maybe this would be
a good first step?
5. I'm a modder... I would like to put headlights and some other
electronics. I'm working on schematics ect. How would i run them from
my controler? From what i read i will need 1 channel for each
additional device?

sounds like another one of those strip-down jobs...find anything u can thats a weak link or absolutely needs replacin and do somthin about it-sounds like u gotta replace mostly bits and pieces-will take $$ but worth it in the end
as for now i wouldnt worry about setups in suspension or anything, just getting it to run nice and smooth should be your first priority
