My first RC Build!

Hi Folks,

I'm super new at the RC world (and this site), but being a very impulsive person, plus the almost unlimited options for this hobby makes it perfect for me. I'm now hooked.

I started my RC build with a bone stock Traxxas Stampede XL-5. A fun little toy that kept me happy for a little while.

I have since replaced/upgraded 90% of this truck.

-Castle Creations SCT / 1410 3800Kv motor
-Venom 25C 2S 5000mAh 7.4 LiPo
-RPM Shock Towers front & rear
-RPM A-Arms front & rear
-Traxxas aluminum caster blocks, wheel hubs, axle carriers, toe links, camber links (F/R)

I'm now just playing around with different gearing to see what I like best.. I was using the stock 19/90 but have just moved up to a 23/90 but haven't had a chance to test it yet.. perhaps this weekend.
