Thanks Paul,

I see two "Hi Flow" and an "X Flow" on the site. 0200, 0222, and 0205 respectively. Do they have the same tuning and handling characteristics and just a difference in looks? I saw the review you and Jason did on the Chevy one and I like the high fenders and wheel wells.

Sorry for all the questions, I just am totally new to these things. They didn't exist when I raced before hahaha.

The 0222 seems to be the "racer" body (National winning body), but they all drive very similar to me. I think the more you like the look of your own personal truck, the better it works for you .

Hey Bob, that's the one I use on my SC10. http://www.rctech.net/forum/10096570-post45.html

Unfortunately I have not been able to put any track time on it yet since I haven't raced SCT since last year.

Very nice. I grabbed the truck so my little girl had something to run when she comes and something for me to use as a second class for big races or for those tracks where they get no buggies in the summer. But since I have it now, I wanna build it up right . I know I'mma end up getting her another truck LOL.

LOL I hear ya. I was actually thinking about sellin my SCs since I haven't run them in months, but Spring/Summer is coming and I haven't decided if I'm gonna get a scaler yet, so the SCTs may still come in handy. I do miss them, and the SC10 is what I started with last year and I definitely had lots of fun with it.

Default Hauler

I need a Hauler bag that can carry a SC4x4 without wheels, but with body attached, a 4wd buggy no wheels, but with body and wing attached. It would be great if it had an extra drawer for stands and accessories. A tool tray on the top would be nice. I dont think the JConcepts Medium hauler work? Any suggestions?

The Medium JC bag will actually fit any of those vehicles race ready. You can fit a complete SCT with tires and body in one drawer and still have room for small items in the same drawer.

Sorry; they are sold out. Hope to have more next at the end of the month.

Are the Silverado body #0200 on back order? I've been waiting 2 weeks and it still hasn't arrived at my LHS.
