Lol, shoegoo and drywall tape already applied. Do I look like a noob or something!? Honestly, I doubt this truck will go brushless until the motor quits. Just can't see any use for it in a 2WD pede. Even brushed with NiMH it's hard to keep enough traction up front to steer. And Butters has a blast while the truck still maintains a certain level of durability. I will handle 2S lipo but I'm not in a rush to get more. Have a couple for the Rustlers and may pick up an extra at some point, but no rush. Got a bottle of shock oil and might stiffen his up some, at least in the back to loosen it up a little and hopefully get it to turn a little better. But too stiff and the cheap crappy caps will start popping off.
