It is awesome! I have no problems at all and run every weekend only on tracks. I have owned a Hyper ST-PRO, Kyosho ST-RR and it is right up there with them. My friend has a Mugen MBX5T and he has driven my Caster too and agrees my Caster turns better and handles a little better. Now all the Caster's come with 16mm big bore shocks included. Only thing out of the box you need to do is get a set of different tires then what come with it or get LPR pre-mounts. That is it. You will defintily like it.

In this case, I should have asked the truggy instead on the buggy for the review !!! LOL

What engine are you using ? Does the truggy is driveable with a .28 or prefers a .21 ?

Any big block should drop in....but I believe most racers are running .21's or
.25's.

i think most of teh large engines are a bit much for the truggy.
That does sseem to change as there are versions that have and are being released for truggies that have refined there power bands to be smoother and more economical.
I havent run anything bigger than a 21 in my K8T and its been more than ample.

I have a LRP .28 in my TTR ST-1 and this is too much power for my truggy. I'll soon receive a new Novarossi Plus 28-7 engine to review, I think this engine will be more suitable for a truggy. This should be fine for the rest of the season.

I ran a axial .28rr in my truggy for a long time and it was fine. I know it ain't like a Picco but that is why I liked it. A bit soft on the bottom. I had a Picco P3 .28 at first and was WAY too much for my driving. Some people like all that down low power. I do not. I like a nice smooth powerband and not all the SNAP you get with some motors.

Why not a GoTech engine, since in you signature it says you are GoTech dealer ?

I added an extra toot to the clutch bell to smooth the engine's torque a little bit. Shoudl work on Caster truggy too

That is what's in there now. I have a GO .21 7-port that replaced the Axial.
