eBay IW 02

Post by steelwoolghandi » Wed Jan 18, 2006 8:23 am

Well I decided to join the ranks of the happy IWaver crowd and buy one I found this deal on eBay and it looked to be cheaper then what most of them are going for I paid $71.00 and that included shipping.

Looks like now I will be looking for hop ups for this thing. :???:

I hope this is not a bad deal!

I bought 2 at a local hobby shop so I didn't have to pay Shipping.

I don't like the steering servo it doesn't always self center. I am looking into a Mini-T servo for replacement though and of course Fet stacking. Since it is actuality different for the Mini-Z MR2 not many aftermarket parts exist. Except by I waver. I already replace the Thin Nylon/Plastic chassis with a carbon fiber plate. When doing so I realized that the rear suspension articulates. The carbon fiber doesn't flex like the plastic.

I bought it mostly for the Controller. I plan on getting a few IW-Pro receiver boards and convert my old Xmods fleet to work with this Controller. Since it has a 10 car memory.
