OK Gang I am open for tips.
I have never had nor operated a RC car before but My RG Traxxas truck is scheduled to arrive today.
My guess is it will not be long before something is broken.

Prep, prep, and more prep! I spend more time fine tuning on my rc trucks before they hit the track. Just remember, you are now runnung a 1/10 scale TT kind of thing. If you have the same mindset as a race team, regarding taking care of the truck, i.e. nut and bolt checks, constant alignment re-sets, shock tuning ect. you should have a pretty reliable vehicle. If you are jumping five feet in the air at skate parks and not servicing your truck, then you better expect trouble. The chassis setup right out of the box is descent for most activities. I have setup notes for different activities/tracks. Dont mind me, Im very particuluar, and my trucks run consistently well. its all what you put into it.
The best thing to remember, is to keep it fun, and enjoy!

I will more than likely just be tinkering around on a limited basis due to just not having a lot of time and way too many projects but I do like to tinker so I do not plal on thrashing without doing maintenance.
First and formost is going to be in learning how to actually operate the truck.
Then I will get into running it as hard as I would actually like to.

I may have wanted to start with a cheaper sacraficial lamb but figured I would throw a little more support in to the RGM pool.
