Well, Today i decided to buy a New Midnight pumpkin, I went the LHS and they only had the metallic one, Im not fond of the metallic pumpkins but i bought it any way, Well about 4 hours later the truck is all built, I installed a Intelli Speed ESC and a d3.5 12t Motor, I did some runs with the body off and the truck is a blast, But, The metallic body has grew on me and i really like it, To the point i dont even want to drive it or put pins threw it in fear of scratching it. lol Anyone else have this proplem before, I shoulda just bought a used one lol

So how do these actually perform? How about a size comparison? Do they come with all of the electronics/radio gear?

I like it, looks pretty cool. Not exactly sure about the all chrome thing. As you said too afraid to mess it up. How about a body off shot? Seems like fairly cheap fun considering the scale

AKASHA, ive had 4-5 of this trucks, they Come with ESC and a motor, You need a controller and steering servo, The truck is a EXTREMELY fun truck but its a wheelie machine, well at least mine is i just put a 10t Revoltions motor in it, But the truck is very reliable fun, its a all around blast, If you look at the Worst Crashes thread there is my other pumpkin i jumped off a huge hill and the only thing that broke was the gear box, Here are some pics of my old rigs under the body
