Thanks for the feedback everyone! I really appreciate it... For those of you at OCRC, are you guys running the stock holeshots as well? I know our dirt at PRCR is quite similar to OCRC.

I think for our small tight track a 10.5 or an 8.5 will be plenty of motor... guess we'll just have to wait and see. I'm super excited to get this class going!


Anybody figured out what offset the wheels are yet??? I need some yellow wheels for sure!
for me at ocrc the stock tires hook up very well. you shouldnt have a problem with them

I got my TT on friday amd it looks awesome! Just need to put in electronics and paint the body! I was going to see if I could put kyosho RT5 wheel hubs on it but that might be a huge headache, too bad since I have TONS of tires for my RT5... But I think I should be fine with the stock tires, they are crazy soft! I'm going to start out with an 8.5t 540 motor to start out and see how it runs and maybe get a 550 if it needs it later on!

Just to be sure I am going to go through the shocks and diffs to make sure they have fluid in them! Cant wait to get this thing on the track!

Awsome! you will have a blast with it. with a 8.5 might be a tad slow (well for me) so you might drop down to a 6.5 with it. as for the diffs the center has 5k fluid in it but the front and rear are only grease. the stock tires hook up very well on indoor clay.

i would try it first. you will be hooked on it. one thing you will notice is that it will nose dive on you. i have 35w front and 30 rear and i still nose dive so i need to put different springs on the rear to help it out better

That looks sweet!
What would be nice would be if we could get some DE Racing skid plates for this thing!

Someone at my local track said he around $140 for it. That's more than most 1/8 aftermarket chassis. They look great and fit well but a bit steep for my wallet.

The stock tires hook surprisingly well. Some of the best stock tires I have ever tried, just needs some stiffer foams.

6.5 540 or 4.5 550 is perfect for this truggy.
