    idk about the bumpers but i suggest 2s for normal bashing/driving and maybe one 3s for crazy speed runs
    these things are super quick on 2s

    looks good, like that color

    oh really...hmmm, well all that is available at the LHS is 3S, is 3S too much for bashing? Thanks but that is actually the stock body, just all the yellow stickers pulled off...

    idk depends on your idea of too much lol i love power but yea 3s imo on dirt is just insane.
    all that power your gonna be going faster and break parts easier.

    o lol didnt realize that was the stock body haha looks good with no stickers

    Sweet shadowz24 might be getting one,he wanted to get that one from CMB but you beat him to the punch lol.He had the merv packed and ready to go.I would go with a 2s also imo,just a bit more enjoyable,going fast is a by-product now let's ride.I can't wait to see the thrashing you give this lil beast.

    i ran one of these on track, all stock on a 2S lipo, it was stupid fast and pulling wheelies on demand, if u want track 2s is the way to go! 3s is just for stupid fast speed runs. would be crazy on the track


    Nitro may be louder, But Brushless is faster!

    Yea I actually traded it to Shadow, but I wish I would've got a chance to run any lipo through it, but I have a Merv to try 2S or 3S with now

    I'll tell ya that mini8 is sick on 3s.I was very impressed with the balance and speed of the mini8.The merv is straight wild on a 2s,or 3s have plenty of spare wings avaliable,its a wheelie machine.

    Not sure if you noticed, but he traded the buggy to another member. However, an 8th scale handles far better.

    T-bone racing makes a front and rear. I'll post pics on Friday, as I am currently out of town. On another note, anyone try a set of tire And wheels that fit with no issue. I am looking for Wheels and tires like the stock ones but white. Thanks for the help

    Hey bud, welcome first off, secondly, you should probably just make another thread about your question. It's unlikely anyone will see this one.
