After chekcing out the truck today, I'll say it looks sorta decent. A very strange design to be sure. There is definately a major lack of front up travel. MadHacker also mentioned that most the parts on the truck didn't like up with the holes in the chassis! Pretty sketchy to say the least. The quality of the truck looks very good, I just think that the devil is in the details and in this case it may just prove to be this trucks ultimate demise. I guess I can't reserve ultimate judgement until I see this in action on the track though!

LOL! Why don't we all just get mad and start flaming each other... that way at the next race, we'll all not be talking and will just hack the poop out of each other on the track until we're all broken!

Yup, it's really hard to say at this point.

I have Pactra Candy Apple Red on my T4 and it is not a Barbie cruser. You could try that or just go with the Upgrade RC decals wich is what i think i am going to do when i get a Truggy.

Talking

From the looks of the photos, and the way Gregg is describing the truck and how it went together. I'd have to say its nothing remarkable, but it doesnt look totally bogus.


This truck might end up being a real nice budget racer for the truggy class, if it doesnt break to easily you might see a few of em out there this year.


It has a fairly standard 1/8 scale design, there is a basic design all vehicles follow cause it works. It is definately not a high-end race truck that much is sure, but it might fit some peoples budgets.

Don't try and place the Hellfire and the CRT, STR or even the new XT8 in the same class as this. The people who have put together an expensive kit, know what they are getting by the looks of the super high quality parts, amazing durablility and racing adjustments to get the extra few second out of a lap.


2cents.
