Spektrum 6040: 0.08 second transit time with 166 oz-in of torque at 6.0V

If you can find them used they should go for around $50

Just an FYI, the Bump chassis is hard anadized like the TLR not shiny aluminum.

Chassis tuning also plays a huge part in how you car will launch off of jumps , I use the battery in the rear posistion and my truck flys nice and level , but my springs and oils have been changed as well .

Every 4x4 I have driven (not tried a SC10 4x4 with the sadle pack setup or the Durango) has been a little nose heavy .
Sc10's jump ass down but I think it's a combination of approach/technique, the center diff that everyone is running (locks the front and rear gearboxes full time instead of the standard slipper setup) and the rear spring rate. I can go level and nose down but not consistently yet.

The Losi's clearly have the advantage there. They can control themselves in the air like a 1/8 scale buggy which is cool.

If budget allows I definitely want to get one of these by mid summer.

I would rather have a truck that jumps nose down and land on the downside consistently and that you can level by giving throttle.

From pictures I have seen the SC10 is tail heavy, with around a 45/55 weight distribution. The SCTE balances quite a bit father forward, like 51/49.

I'd like to get one of these to run on the bigger 1/8 scale kind of tracks.
On an indoor track, the jumps were small enough where if the truck was too nose down, it wasn't too noticeable. But when the jumps where large, there were times when I was getting close to doing front flips.

I found weight distibution made a big difference in how this truck jumped, especially on big jumps. I put the battery in the back most position. I use a Bump chassis. And I still found that the weight was still biased towards the front. I actually added weight to the rear just in front of the rear gearbox and now the weight is almost exactly 50/50 front to back and side to side.

This made the biggest difference for me to have the truck jump more like my 1/8 scale buggies.

My only concern as well. Other than that, less unsprung weight is always a good thing and they sure are purty!

But is it power hungry like the Savox?

No it's not. I like mine over the savox one I have. I need a big o cap with the savox where as the 6040 does not require one at all.

You or I really want a truck that leaves the jump and flys level then with small brake input drops the nose a bit for the downside landing.Alot of folks talk about having trouble with 4x4 trucks jumping nose down.It is mostly track time with a 4x4 that will fix this,it is all technique and good set up That said out of all the 4x4 I have run this one takes small inputs in the air very much like an 1/8 scale does Cheers!!!!
