Tin was already having not fun sounds from the drive-train on his. A motor that hot would prolly shred it on your first trigger pull.

We need to make a Baja Run with RC find a Sandy area to run !!!
And destroy some stuff !!! Bring as much power as you want.
Just make sure there is plenty of Sand for them to get stuck in !!!

And let it Rip !!!

Well there may not be anything wrong with Tin's. True it's making some noise, but a few days ago I asked if he figure out what it is and he said he never checked it out, he just stopped driving it. Hell, it could be as simple as a loose screw, or even a rock jammed in somewhere. Personally, I like the car.

But it being designed as a brushed truck, I want some evidence it can handle the power. Someone get Tin's and test it properly! LOL

You shoulda been there Chris. Anvil Wes, zip tied a big ol' 4 or 5000mah lipo to the top of the little Losi and burned the tires down so much they have holes in them. He was also out back doing donuts for like 5 minutes straight and we kept hearing "ouch" as Wes kept flinging rocks on himself. It was great.

Weeee! I like the SC trucks. Back in the day there was a series called the Mickey Thompson Off Road Grand Prix. They raced these same types of trucks and Toyota dominated in that era. I got to see them a couple times back in CA. Very cool It would be awesome if they came and raced here.

It's real easy to take care a truck Wes.... just don't beat the BrownBioSubstance out of it. If you do get one, can I drive it PUH-LEEEAASSSEEE!!! LOL. Actually, I'd like to see how it performs on dirt and I was thinking about the rear suspension, I bet it could be dialed in for rear steer or countersteer which would be a good tuning aid.

Yea Dean I will defintly let you drive it no problem beacuse you let me drive all you trucks and cars. But we gunna go oval late model when tunin the rear steer lol. But yea right when I get it all put all the electronics from my Hyper 10sc and retire it and sell and fix the mini sct and sell it...

But hopefully my dad gets the Hint that I want this truck for my birthday and he hasnt got me nothing for my Bday.
But overall this looks like a badass truck and it can handle with more tuning and differnt tires it could wope on on alote of cars but overall this truck was supose to be a bash RTR and turn out to be a race car that can handle...

Here PROOFF TO ALLL OF YALLL

Well guys 1st week gone by the truck is suriving but there was noise like it was an nitro engine with your finger over the pipe with 2s. But when I strap in the 3s it got a little quiter.
BUT tonight it starting making a tikin noise but pull center diff cover off and fixed this set screw that was about to dremel the heck out of the spur and cover. But this truck is AWESOME it handles but tomorow 11/13/10 Saturday were takin it up to General Sams ATV Park and hit the big sand dunes. ANd dirt jumps and trail and hill climbing. Ill try to take some vids but cant find camera..
