  1. Cool, geiles kleines GefΓ€hrt, geht gut abπŸŽπŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨, dicken Daumen fΓΌr dein Video πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’™

  2. FTX are definitely worth there money I’ve just bought the Bugster for Β£90 on offer brushed and the things brilliant for the money even took a 3s run on stock electrics surprisingly although I wouldn’t advise it πŸ˜‚ definitely great starter RCs, parts are cheap as chips you can’t go wrong for the money. Can’t wait to see how fast you get this upto before the drive line gives out some where, Tamiya TT01/2 I believe average 50mph before something gives out. Certainly be interesting to see 😎 what electrics you planning on fitting? Brushed or Brushless? Hobbywing or Banggood special?
