Default Serpent Spyder SRX2 SCT Thread

No release date yet, but looks like it will be here sooner than later:

http://www.rcnews.net/2014/01/29/ser...t-at-toy-fair/

I will keep this first post updated as more info is available.

UPDATE:

The SRX2 SCT is scheduled for an April release according to RedRC: http://api.viglink.com/api/click?for...-2-sc-truck%2F

What exactly were you expecting? Looks like it shares a lot of design elements with the buggy, which is pretty cool itself!

I'll be interested to see if there is eventually a mid-motor version as well.

This thing looks like it's ready to be packaged up and ship to suppliers compared to when we 1st saw the Spyder rm buggy. Should be ready a lot sooner I'd think.

I'd like to give this one a shot. Those side guards/air guards are ugly.

Looks like its gonna perform great since its based off the buggy platform. Thats good news for the Stadium Truck as well.

It's a ground up purpose built SCT, not built off of the buggy. When they release more info you will see what I mean, I cannot disclose of anything, also the body looks great with paint on it. Best looking SC body on the market.

They unbolt if you don't like them. But fortunately looks have nothing to do with performance. All I know is this: Billy knows his stuff. The buggies are great, and I fully expect the SC to raise the bar in the class.

A fair point.

Anyone know if they run 0 offset SCTE wheels?

That is what Billy said at Spektrum when I was begging for details on the SC. Losi 0 offset with 12mm hex.
