Recommended to buy: Yes
"Peta Parkour "
"Good truck, Great store."
"The Deadbolt is a decent truck. The wishbone in the front end detached on my third run allowing water into the servo, which killed it. After switching to the four link Suspension (four link setup is in your extra parts bag) and replacing the servo. I've had zero problems with this rig. It's performed fantastically everywhere I've ran it. Rocks, water, mud, hill climbs. It has no quarrels about any of it. RC Planet is an awesome site. The prices are nice. (cheaper than some of the other sites). The customer service with RC Planet was fantastic. I had no problems contacting the company on multiple occasions. Both via email, and phone. They even shipped my truck the same day I ordered it. My only beef with my transaction at RC Planet was the free shipping. It took a week to get from Utah to Kentucky. Although that's FedEx, not RC Planet. Otherwise Fantastic truck, and store. I will shop here again, and again."

What Kv brushless would you suggest for this vehicle
We recommend the Castle Creations 3800kv.
Could I convert this vehicle to brushless, or should I just move to the Axial Wraith?
Yes you can easily make this rig brushless, you would just need to change the motor and ESC to one of your choice.
What is the travel on the stock shocks also will the gmade xd piggyback shocks fit with this car
The stock shocks are 90mm and yes the Gmade piggy backs fit and work great on the Deadbolt. As for sizes well we would recommend the 93mm but the 93-103mm will work great on that rig.
How can I get more width from my axel or is that just not possible
You can get this widner kit, Junfac 2.2 Wheel Widner (4) (Offset: +19mm) part # JUN51033.
is it a good rc
Yes Axial has been making great products for years and years, if your looking for a great scale/ trail truck then this is a great choice.
Is this truck waterproof?
They don't classify this as being waterproof although the receiver is in a closed case and the ESC is waterproof. With proper care and maintenance it should be able to handle all weather conditions. Axial has a great write up on this called "The Truth About Waterproof"
How tight can it turn.
Unfortunately we don't have the exact steering radius of this truck. There is a lot of upgrades that you can do to get better steering out of it though.
what shocks would you recommend for this car and also how can I get my car about a inch more of clearance
We would highly recommend the Pro-Line Ultra Reservoir Shocks 105mm Fr/Re Rock Racers part # PRO628800 or Pro-Line PowerStroke Shocks # PRO606300. You could get the Hot Racing Aluminum Front and Rear Shock Towers SCX10 part # HRASCX28301 and get a bit more height out of it or you could do a chassis conversion like part # STRSTA30502L.
