So i just got a roost for my bday. First impressions are its pretty sweet and the light bar is bright as poop. Now i havent been able to run it on a full charge because the charger it comes with takes 9 hours and i dont have a connector for my other charger yet.

Affter running ut the other day the only complaint i have is the shocks suck. Both rear shocks pulled free from the cap. So those are getting upgrade with something as soon as i find out what size they are. I think i can use parts off the ruckus for it.

Sounds like a nice little truck, I have a 1/18 ruckus. So far, I've only had to replace the servo.

Got my new shocks today. I went with the hot racing ones for an 1/18 ruckus. First impressions of them are they are really nice. Love the adjustability of them. I put softer springs for the fronts and stiffer in the rear. Then i filled them all with 50 weight oil. Now i gotta test it out.

Well so far the shocks work great. Now issues with break and it helped me gain a little ground clearance.
