I went to the Findlay swap meet saturday, had a pretty good day, sold 4 airplanes, 3 helicopters and i ended up trading the little yak for a savage 25 nitro 4wd truck. should be interesting.

That will be fun. Watch your temps though. Over heating the things can toast them easily. I recommend you run traxxas top fuel 25% through that thing. I had a traxxas t-maxx with the 3.3 and while it was a fast fun truck it burnt through nitro quickly. After it got stolen i replaced it with a big 1/5 scale gasser and love it.
