I saw the title and someone had a baby. Well you got a new baby , sort of I guess. scratch

Anyway, it should be a blast, I was playing with one at the LHS for a few minutes and it was great even in stock form. So, unless you have a lot of room, you might be happy with it as is for a while...I can't even imagine what that would be like with the brushless set up.

I know!! Very Happy I love this beast! Its my pride and joy! I have a huge backyard that is mostly grass and sand except for a section that is a small pile of mulch/dirt/sand/stuff that is about 30' x 20' and has a few jumps and works really well. But I cant wait to go brushless but that probably wont happen for a month or so Sad Mad bom

Sorry bout the wait guys but i finally got the pics taken and here they are!






The chassis could be better but it works.... for now




I will also be buying a red anodized roll cage, hpi phaltline rims and tires, the exo carbon wing, and trhe red pushrods and steering inks.


~REVIEW~

asphalt (the road)- handles great and I usually cant keep the front tires on the ground lol.

grass- rips right through it like its on the road and still handles very well.

sand- it kicks the sand up everywhere and shoots it back for a good 10-15 feet.

concrete (my driveway)- the tires just spin like crazy aand whenever i turn it pretty much drifts.

issues- The chassis is a pretty cruddy plastic and i personally think traxxas should come out with some new chassis thats either cf or aluminum, either one works for me. Also the tires come unglued WAY too easily. Ive only ran it probably 4 times with a full charge and one of the tires is almost completly unglued. But other than those small issues..... I LOVE THIS BEAST!!

I have drove one in over the summer in box stock on the track, and it does handle really good although if on the track. Although it did have a slight jumping problem where it would jump nose down, but with more motor that wouldn't be an issue or if you play with the set-up a little.

But it is a fun truck to drive, although I don't think I will ever get one as I tend to base what I buy off of it there is a racing class for it or not (I only race, lol)

Well, Ive decided to save up for a mmm esc and probably the mmm motor too. But does anyone have any suggestions for other brushless motors that would be around the same price range or maybe cheaper? (mmm motor- $85).

Either way, youll be rippin it up with that power package. Just make sure you get a sintered rotor and not the glued one.

Nice, just watch your gearing as well for temps, if you can put your finger on it for 3 seconds without it burning you, then your fine.
