Anyone think of maybe running SC wheels/tires on the TT? Wonder how well that would work and look for that matter.

I guess the question is why would you want to? If you want a SC truck then just buy the Hyper SC. If you want a truggie then this is it!

And to be honest I think if you ran sc wheels and tires this things would drive like total crap.

I believe the 4x4's have a longer chassis,I could be wrong. As for the look, you would just need to try it. I got to see my brothers new tt today and it was awsome, can't wait till I can afford one.

yup my brother is right this thing is sweet. I have not got my ballistic 550 yet but it should be here shortly. I cant wait to get it on the track and play. I rebuilt the diffs and shocks today. hopefully I will be painting Monday. Once I do I will post pics of the car and chassis layout.

Since Ofna's site says weight varies can someone with a roller wigh it out? The 10SC weighs 3.7 pounds. I can't imagine it being that much different but who knows.

I am going to assume its lighter, but I am wrong most of the time, so don't listen to me.

I'm guessing so too. I just want to know why everyone says 540 motor can't get the job done. Can the thing really be that much of a tank. 540 motors have powering stuff heavier than this for years before 550 ever came out. The only thing I've ever had go bad on brushless motors is the bearing and thats like .50 cents to replace and about 5 minutes. I've never ran 3s, I don't know maybe that is whats wiping out the 540 motors but I seem to be OK on 2s for now. Seems to me 3s would just be extar tough on tires, gears, diffs, shafts, etc. for real reason. I have been competitive on 2s and even Nimh 7 cells. I've been waiting for awhile for my 10TT since they sold out, hope it isn't much longer. I've decided to give it to my wife and let her run it in the electric novice class with a 5700Kv. She can drive so she should be able to clean that class easily with this setup. I ended up with a RC8Te and MMM for the truggy class.

I know Jimmy runs 540's in his Jammin and is competitive, he hangs with Chad Bradley who runs the 4.5 Novak. I hate worrying about heat so I would run a 550... I over do it. What can I say, Tool Time was my favorite T.V. show for years.

I personally think a 540 can could run this rig but the heat it will generate could burn the motor up. I have seen guys burn there 540 up in 4x4 sc trucks. I my self dont have money to buy motor after motor to have a good time. The ballistic 5.5 550 I am gonna use is only 3700kv so as far as kv I am slower than a 6.5. I dont want to run fans and heat sinks on my gear. If I am not allowed to race it at my track then so be it. I do this for fun and enjoy racing but not with all the politics. I still have my b4 to race indoors and once summer hit I will race my rc8e outdoors.

I weighed mine in at 3.50 pounds with gear, 540 motor. Its doesnt feel heavy at all compared to my SCRT10... 5.25 pounds... both w/o body or battery.

Ok guys,

I put both rollers on the scales.
Weights are with a hitec 645mg servo and Hobbywing 5.5 6000kv 540 motor and 120 amp speed controller combo, shell too. Sorry but I'm not pulling all the electronic stuff out

10SC - 2339 grams (5.15 lbs)
10TT - 1850 grams (4.00 lbs)

So it's a 489gram (17.24 oz) difference!

Just picking up the SC10 it's a porky beast!

We had our 10 SC racing at our track last night and I took the TT for others to see. Had an impromptu test drive for some people between heats and mains. There are now at least 6 ready to buy one when they arrive in the next weeks here in Australia. Lucky my track/shop is the AUS hobao distributor.

It's just so great to drive!

my 540 today was about 120 after draining a 5000 pack in more or less race pace, no heat issues whatsoever on 6.5t
