Default why so cheap?: OFNA Hyper 10TT 1/10 Electric Truggy

Im returning to RC after awhile and a lot has changed, electric is where it's at and that is where I want to go. I have been looking at the OFNA Hyper 10TT 1/10 Electric Truggy roller and RTR and was wonderin why it was so cheap??? It SEEMS like a great car but I wasn't sure. Should I put my money into it or not?

P.S. if there is another thread on this topic i apologize, i searched the car and had no correct results.

Or as a roller it is $199

I had one, a nice lil truck! I got the roller.... Its just little... But its fun!

Kinda like the CRT .5, I miss that lil truck! They would rip but sadly the class never "took off"...

don't worry they are sweet and are kind of a mix between a scrt10 and hyper 10sc.

o ok ty guys, my main track is like legit dirt, gravel. It is great but hard to maintain and never maintained well so common things are ruts bumps and just a generally rough and technical track. Do you think this thing will get beat up or thrown around too much? and is it THAT much smaller?

The roller is listed as a "pro" but not sure what the difference would be. Something to look at IMO.

Yea that RTR c/w a cheap remote and probably just as cheap brushed motor and ESC. Doesnt even say anything about the servo.

And dont forget all the "upgrades" you should do to get it worthy without falling apart. I had one for my little guy, it was just a little too fragile for my liking. Sticking with 1/8th scale from now on.

If you are gonna race it on a big outdoor 1/8th scale track, it will seem VERY small! I ran mine on a standard 1/10th scale indoor track and it got around great! But it is a bit smaller than a standard 1/10th scale truck...
I ran mine stock, but with an elite RC motor mount and it was tough! I also ran a 550 motor so it was a mini missile!

Thumbs up this truck is B.A.

I have got one of these trucks, it is not fragile at all!
i'm a relatively new driver(2 years in the hobby) and still don't stick to lines, this thing has taken some abuse.. i have raced it 3 times now and have yet to have a problem or a broken part. (in this hobby i think that 3-5 race days w/out 1 broken part, for a driver like me, is pretty good!!!!!!
I got the roller, $199
and put in a reedy 550-sl 3500kv and sl-1200 esc $150
a hitech ultra torque MG servo $40
and a 30c 4000mah sky lipo $25
for barely breaking $400, it is an amazing truck! and the motor/esc are hitting temps of about 135/105 after a 6min race on a 1:8 scale track.

It's a fun truck and easy to drive as a rtr package.
Here we get 2.4 radio, a 7kg savox servo, 35A esc with 3900kv sensorless motor. Easy to drive until you start to go fast, then it is time to do some personalized tuning. Generally quite strong, although really depends on how sadistic one treats his cars.

I had the same concerns and questions at first since I just picked up a AWESOME Deal for a "Bump Edition" roller. All the mods already done and all I need is a motor/esc combo. I am thinking (as of now...) going with the MMP SCT PRO 2400kv that I have in my Slash or... Higher kv like the 3800kv. Any thoughts?

Pics of the 10TT I picked up:

Nothing against anyones post. But ive had my hyper tt for almost a year now and the only thing i did was install the hpi vapor esc and the hpi vector 5900kv motor and now its a rocket. I had to power it down to compete at the races. As for durabilitly every race day we have 4 heats then the main and ive been doing this for almost a year and to this day after several crashes and being run over by big 8th scales i have yet to break anything fellas. I dont know where this "its fragile" came from but mine is nothing remotely even close to being weak or fragile. Im proud of my hyper 10 its very fast and performs perfectly.
