They dont make it but you can find them new, they handle twice as good as the Slash and look a ton better...

WOW that looks EXACTLY the same as a truck a guy called thorbobrc was building on another forum, just his had 2 4 stroke nitro engines and was mostly aluminium.

I really fancy building a corr truck. I might start one when I finish my TC.

I doubt that would happen that way. Perhaps RTR electronics would be similar, but why would AE purposely dumb down the chassis engineering?

OK, so this (below) is not a CORR truck. Got it.

This is a SCORE Trophy Truck. What have we got going there in the rear-end?




Hmm, assuming this is the same truck it looks like it is still trailing arm though:

Here's a better shot of a corr truck. Not as much travel as a trophy truck, but they still have a solid rear.





Some trophy trucks have rear independent suspension (like you posted), but they are a rarity.

Thats basically a huge version of a 3x3 baja bug suspension.

Yeah, the rule book is a pdf that can be viewed from the CORR website. IRS is specifically prohibited in Pro-4!
