I actually have a few 2wd High hp trucks and its all about throttle controll..
i never meant to sound harsh or like a know it all (im sure to remain verry teachable) you'll never learn anything if you think you know everything.
but it was just quite normal driving.
especially for a sponcered racer .
his jumping and air controll were pretty good but on the ground he has alot of room for improvment...
im sorry if i offended anyone im just calling it as i saw it...

during the video the controller was handed off...........we were just playing...not racing ! Trugsta please lighten up.....your reading too far into it.....also the guys were driving standing on pit lane, so visibility is not so good................. Also as mentioned the power is high, its a RTR OFNA with zero upgrades....and it was about FUN ! not cutting clean laps LOL ! trust some guy to totally miss the point and comment on the driving LOL !

I am just in shock that someone would be commenting on the driving LOL ! Yes we could feather the truck around the track, cut clean laps......but dam, how exciting would that video be ? I mean really ? who wants to see a high powered play toy like this being babied around a track ? what would be the point of that ? bore ourselves to death ? if i wanted to go slow and purely cut clean laps do you think we would have bothered building a car like this ? I mean here we show a 1/10th short course with a raunchy big block and the only thing dude can comment on is the driving ? gimme a break !

With that big 'ole honking body, SCT's don't really shine on any 1/8th scale track with big-air Supercross style jumps.

With that being said, I bet that thing would be awesome on a track with more of a flowing, smaller jumps, European "GP style" layout. Get some good tires, and a track surface that's prepped for racing, and it would be dialed!

It definitely doesn't like the big air, but as mentioned earlier I was shocked it cleared the triple like that....to date none of the BL SC trucks has been able to manage that one............ And on a open flowing track this thing would be a menace..... This is just a RTR OFBNA with a big block stuck into it, we could definitely improve this machines handling with some upgrades and setup...I think it still has grease in the diffs LOL !
