Questions?? Will there be an official Team Associated Rival Monster Truck thread?

Will there be one, or is there one?
Peeps will be getting their trucks soon.

I know guys who already have theirs, they are saying it's a good truck, don't expect to run 6s, the ESC is rated for 4 only. The motor tends to get a little (140 on Ni and 160+ on LiPo) hot, but other than that, they said they love the truck..

I think 6s lipos would be just silly fast, not for me anyway.
I am not wanting the fastest truck, so, the supplied batteries should
do me fine, for a while.

You picky son of a bit%@ lmao just kidding buddy. I see what you're saying. If you want an official thread then start one up before the one I linked gets to big and nobody wants to use it.

Ive been checking this truck out for a while...I want to get an independent suspension MT so I can race with the No Limit RC guys..I have all solid axle trucks right now... I was looking at the Emaxx and Savage, but I think I would rather give this a try instead..Associated makes sum nice stuff and this looks good...Cant wait to see more pics and vids, but I might try to grab this truck this summer

Looks great. I really like the wheels..

Is that a single steering servo ? Hope its better than the one they put in the 8.2E RTR, that one is pure crap.
