If I bought everything from the online store it would cost me over $165 for all the parts I need and that does not include shipping. So once again I have to resort to ebay to get the best deal as possible.

In the table below is all the items I purchased on ebay, and everything else I had already.

  • Motor Saver rt60 air filter 10.87
  • Tekno Rc Revo Upgrade Pack TKR1000X 15.52

  • Traxxas Revo 3.3 150cc Fuel Tank & Lines! New! 5363x 2.38
    total 82.03

So I had to spend about $82.03 (thats not including shipping) to get the Revo up and running. As of Sunday August 16, 2009 I have orderd all the items from ebay.

After spending some time breaking down the truck and cleaning it up here is a pictures of all the parts i have to make it as complete as possible. Now I have to wait for the rest of the items to arrive in the mail.
