Tactical Urban Recon Drone (TURD) - Traxxas E-Revo

It's been quite some time since I've logged into RCGroups, so please forgive my newbishness.

Bought a Traxxas E-Revo Brushless Ed. a month ago and have been modifying it like crazy.

Update on work done to Taz.

I have a lot planned for this car, and my experience says good preparation makes things a lot easier in the long run. I'm using a Graupner MZ-18 9-Ch TX, which has full telemetry cabability, but is intended for Air usage. I personally like this style TX over the pistol style, so it works for me. The car has a Graupner Electric Air Module which gives me individual cell voltages on the 6S setup, in addition to current draw on the batteries. The Graupner GPS module gives me position and velocity. I will get some better pictures later tonight as I tear it down in preparation for a center differential, sway bars, additional spring/shock assemblies to assist in handling all the extra weight, new front and rear body mounts and some other stuff.

Parking Garage Shenanigans:

Dressed up to go do some drifting post thunder storm. Front differential ring gear got stripped thanks to allowing someone else to drive.... So I removed the forward drive shaft and went RWD for a bit.
