I like it, a few of us have been talking about running 4x4 SC and this truck looks promising.

Unless the internal gearing is way different, I think a 6900 Kv motor is too much. I was thinking more like a 4400, or 5700 at most. The truck weighs 3.5 lbs with no electronics. That's allot of weight for a 6900 Kv motor to pull around, with any gear.

If it's priced similar to the other trucks that use the same stuff, then it'll likely be priced pretty close:

or RTR

Hopefully it is priced closer to the Hyper Mini STE which it appears to be based on.

The mamba 6900 would be way to hard to gear in that truck. Something in the 3500 to 4500 area will be better.

You like a plastic chassis, plastic universals, weak lover chasis braces, cheap shock caps that pop off, and steering bells crank that pops out of its sockets in hard landing?

No thanks!!

All I know is that the Slash has been my most reliable/durable r/c vehicle to date. It has needed the least amount of maintenance while getting the most use/abuse. I can't make that statement about the SC10.

It has also been the most fun.

For 4WD kit? That sounds incredibly low. It should be around $300+

What happened to the concept body? The production body is just plain ugly.

IMHO, there is no way this truck will come in under the 4X4 Slash price wise.

I bet price wise it's actually cheaper (in kit form).

Keep in mind that the Slash is full RTR with a crappy servo, crappy ESC that can't handle LiPo, a motor that gets pipping hot, and a radio that I won't be using.

In the end, this Jammin/Ofna will be a lot of cash once you stick in nice components. I'm predicting double the price all said and done. But it will be double the car too no doubt. A mini SC8 really.

Not bagging the Slash, just pointing out that these are two entirley different rigs.

crappy servo? my 2075s have been working great so far, quick and waterproof, though not metal gear but I rarely hear anyone having problem with them. ESC can't take Lipo? I dunno what you base that on. Motor gets too hot, have you ever seen Castle Creation's?

I probably won't be getting a slash 4x4 because I think it is over priced. Slash has its weak spots that I can name a few and traxxas quality is hit or miss but none of the "problems" you stated was true.
