Default Thoughts on the 2017 SCX-10II

I have not owned a crawler before and have been thinking of finally picking one up. Would you all say that it is worth getting the new '17 Jeep edition versus the older Jeep SCX-10II. What are the main differences, I am not too worried about the price difference just would like to know more of what i'd be getting different if I did go with the '17 version. I have looked and compared both of them but am having problems identifying what has really been changed out. Thanks for your time everyone.

Are you only interested in the RTR?

Anyways the RTR differences between new and old are...

All metal Trans.
Led lights included.
New ESC with led controller built in.

I am interested in either or. I usually build my kits but I figured for a first crawler I could upgrade as I break.

Another question that I have I am pretty sure I know the answer to, just want to ask to make sure. Is the battery that goes into this rig just a regular stick size pack or is it different? What batteries would any of you recommend for it? I ordered the '17 today and it should be in by Monday. Thanks again everyone the info is greatly appreciated.

Just a regular old Stick LiPo should do.

Just grab a Turnigy battery from HobbyKing.

Thank you... I wasn't 100% sure since for some reason they looked smaller when I was looking at pictures online. Had to go to my LHS to check under the lid of one lol

IMO, there are other options out there that are just as good if not better, The TRX4 models for one and the Vaterra Ascender is another good option.

don't forget about the redcat gen7 both the sport and pro versions are rtr just charge the included battery and put AS batteries in the radio and go. I've had the pro version for about 4 months and have put it thru hell including submerging it almost all the way under water and haven't busted anything yet. The only things I've changed was put my castle esc in added lights and light bar and a winch and put a 35t motor in (personal preference). Other than that it's completely stock

So how much faster is the 35t? I bought a 35t, but haven't had the time yet to put it in.

If the Redcat came with a 27T, then this 35T would be slower. More Torque though.

actually it's the other way around. The higher the number the slower you go and the more torque you get. I've tried 55 45 the 35 and a 27t in it and the 35 seems to be the happy spot for my rig just the right amount of wheel speed and torque for the rocks and streams I run in
