Cool EVADER ST

Hey J of L
I have the electric Evader st (Car - radio - battery - charger $315 Aus thats Approx $130 in UK good value new from hobby shop), can get it nitro If you wish to go nitro.
Go to 3 threads (RACE DAY - 20MIN ELECTRIC MAINS - Duratrax Evader)to see talk about the Evader they are a tough little stadium truck. I have had some issues getting the servo sorted but it will only cost me $2.50 Aus dollars for each time I regear it.
I have spent a bit as I have a better budget and wish to race somewhat competitively but if you wish to bash it and do every thing on the cheap your self (such as servo) then it won't cost much.
You will also see I have bashed the total crap out of it and only had servo issues.
GOOD LUCK MATE WILL CHECK THIS THREAD TO SEE HOW YOU WENT.

by the looks of the prices, i'm probably going for the RC10GT, as although it is more expensive than the rush, and there are no hop ups for it, it is the 'plus' model, which i think means it comes with hop ups, and the spare parts are abou 1/3 the price of the HPI ones. i just need money now...

Can't go wrong with the RC10GT and there are tons of hop-ups by many manufacturers.

Here is a link to the AE site; scroll to the bottom of the page to see what the GT RTR Plus has to offer...

The RC10GT was replaced with the RC10GT2.

The RC10GT isn't made any more.

The tuffest Ele ST I've owned is the Duratrax Evader, it is based from a Losi XXT so some Losi parts fit.

Only had servo problems with it, put a better servo in problem stoped.

I race a RC10T4 Team Kit.

I'm racing a modfied RC10GT (has RC10GT2 parts) and I'm learning how to drive AND tune nitro!!! The tuning is the hard part!!!!!

The BL Losi is much easier to take care of than a brushed motored ST.

as far as i know they are still selling end of line models, thats why the RC10GT's are alot cheaper than they were.

The GT is a great truck to start out with. Even if it is the "old" one there will still be parts all around for it, since there wre a TON of the trucks sold. I have 2 of them, and they seem to be great trucks. Another nice thing is you can buy RPM parts for it, which are made tough for a basher and racer.

The Losi would be my 2nd choice.

And these are the 2 best choices if you plan to race and bash. Once you get the racing bug, bashing will seem dull!

i think i will mark out an informal track where i will be bashing with that marking spray, as my freind will be getting something nitro powered (no idea on make though probably a buggy). it has some HUGE jusmps, as it is an old quarry and used for biking. i might do some photos actually... i hope the RC10GT can withstand some HUGE jumps, as i WILL be doing them.

The rc10 gt is one of the most durable cars ever manufactured. Before you do this though I would go and replace the springs with stiffer springs and run some stiffer oil. This will help the car to take the landings better.
