They work ok, when they stayed glued on the rims.... Ran mine for the fist time the other night, and after the first run, they were all coming off the rims. The wheelies don't help that I am sure....Its a beast with my old SCT 4wd set-up in it!

FYI- As mentioned in previous posts, I've had some issues with "Crunch n Munch" diffs. I recently took a gamble on some Kyosho 12x15mm shims, to push the crown away from the pinion inside the diff case. I have not run it yet, but rolling it on the bench, it appears to be much, much better.

Everyone has an opinion, but I'd say get the TT. I'd never heard of the Sparrowhawk until now.

The Sparrow, Losi 10T and Ofna 10TT are all roughly 11inch wheelbase. The Sparrow is likely longer due to that huge wing

Amain, Tower and even Ebay have tons of parts for the TT not to mention the Hyper SC which borrows alot of parts from the TT, and short course trucks and parts are all over the place.

besides...TT sounds alot cooler than Sparrowhawk....

I'm stuck on the short side too.
So far the TT is pretty much it for a 4x4 truggy without converting. If racing I think your good to go but if for bashing then I think you may want to make sure parts are local or ordering is no problem.

Default My TT @ the track

Got a friend to record me running the TT against another TT and a Losi 4WD buggy. Did horrible as soon as he picked up the camera but hopefully will have some better video tomorrow. If anything this video proves how tough these trucks actually are, and how they CAN fly level off the big jumps ;P Excuse the poor driving!

Has anyone tried to use a Novak 4.5T 550 motor on 3s? I installed mine on my truck and seems a little slower than I was expecting.(geared 26/42 with 3.54" tires....)

35MPH is slow for me....I was planning about 58MPH(or a little more)
Anyone about the 3s?Temps? Rotor / coil condition?

I have one question for you, how do you have your top plate shimmed? I had to shim my top plate up 1/4" to clear the rack! If not it hits the top plate and binds up like crazy! Then when shimmed up theres almost 1/2 the normal throw.... IDK id I did it right... I used all the parts listed...

Truck does work good, stock steering rack is sloppy and brittle, great for those in Cali where it never gets cold, but in the midwest it freezes and ya get 4 laps out of a rack... Hence the aluminum strc upgrade
