It's good to see it coming back, but in most places this class is dead. This class is alot tougher than 1/10 buggies.

DJ, Where are these hidden on Nitrohouse's website? They don't show up with any searches I tried for ofna, jammin, crt.5, or proline.

Got mine yesterday, got it all put together this morning on the ext chassis. Gotta order another rx box, this will do for now.





I wish my wing and wheels were black, not yellow, but oh well. Haven't touched the body yet.

Looks good man. Did you already glue your wheels? I used Ritdye black to dye my wing, worked great. I left the wheels yellow though.

Thanks. Yeah, everything is ready to go, tires glued and all. Like others were saying, I didn't get any extra set of wheels or tires, even though the ad says they're going to be included. But no biggie I guess, I will probably end up putting 2wd truck rears all around and race it with Hyper TT's, and Losi Ten T's. Gonna see how it does with the buggy rears first.

Oh yeah, already doing up the body. But I won't be able to finish it until tomorrow morning, ran out of rattle cans and I gotta go to bed soon. Otherwise I'd just go run to the lhs and get some.

Is it just me or does the SCT combo cog a lot? Sometimes it won't move until I get to about 1/4 throttle, and then it launches instead of calmly accelerating. And this is while slowly pulling the throttle. I know it isn't sensored, but come on, the VXL combo is smoother than this.

What controller are you using? I'm using a mmm and the 1406 series 5700kv with all the settings stock except I put motor timing to low and it is suPer smooth

Ran mine for the first time today at Cap City in Sacramento. With the box setup and 5/7/2 font center rear diff oil setup it drove pretty nice. At least for my driving skills. Ran a full pack with plenty of crashes and plenty of SC trucks running me over and didn't break anything.

Ran mine yesterday for the first time up at OCRC.... had a BLAST. Running Box stock, I got in about 6 packs through it with no temp issues, no breakage, etc. It was brand new yesterday morning so I was kinda worried about having to "work out the kinks" but didnt have any! The Castle SCT Combo with 16t pinion and the stock kit steel spur worked great! PLENTY of power on 2S lipo.

I think the only thing I may do before I run it next time is try some M3 Caliber SC's with wheels I have sitting around. I think the added ride height the tires/wheels provide may help it in the rough... kind of like how smooth the Hyper 10TT is. IDK yet though. Suggestions?

My first try will be with 2.2 truck rears all around like the TT's have. These little buggy ones are soo tiny for a truck this size.

The sidewinder esc with the 3800kv. It's the combo deal for around $100.

Body's all done. First time trying the window trim thing. I do not have steady hands




-It doesn't show in the pics, but the graphic part is a gunmetal/deep green color I mixed. I also added some green metallic stuff I have. You can kinda see it in this pic, in real life it's like 100 times more metallic.


-The rear was a real pain to get it to sit right on the ext chassis...How'd you guys pull it off?
