I have owned other 4wd (Losi and Associated) compared to these my TT is bulletproof, now if you compare it to my slash, then my TT is very fragile. I run on a very, very tight track, with poles everywhere, so if I hit everything at some point I will break and have broken my TT, but nothing compared to how fragile my other 4wd were.....

Its certainly cold here in NY, but were racing indoors. We normally race 1/8th scale jammin truggies and buggies, and seeing that I cant compare the to. The jamin stuff really takes a beating and pretty much nothing breaks. Maybe were expecting too much out the 10tt, but as I stated, these parts broke on very little flippage or landing after a jump.

Call me crazy, but I pre-heat my TT on the way down to the track !!!! Cold temperatures puts way to much stress on any plastic/composite parts!!

And no its not the driving that caused the vehicle to break if thats what some are thinking. This truggy is just not built that well. Period.
i alos just recently got a tt, and have been racing with 1/8 scale and holding my own. i do agree some parts can break easily, but i taken hard hits and so far it holds up great(stock). im running a gtb with a 5.5 550 motor, and i also tried a 13 pinion and it was very slow, so went up to a 18 and its better, probally gunna try a 19 i know that seems high, but i turned my epa up and the truggy stays with the 1/8 scale, and is tempin perfectly at 148. with your 4.5 your truggy should be nuts fast. stay with stock stur and try gearing up.

Most parts broke on turn pipes. The big jumps and even cartwheel landings were fine. At least the rear bumper and maybe 1 suspension arm were from the big trucks smacking my car.
That's a sick indoor track, I watched a you tube video when slayden, and Tim Roberts where there running SC. I would rent an apartment next door to that place if I could run on it all the time.. Lol

Default hyper 10tt layout

Got my 10TT built. Figured I'd put the electronics layout on here for reference/comments...

Ran it up and down the street. Can wait to get some tires and get this thing on the track. Going to be a fun class.
