And I was simply pointing out that ST is as far from realistic as you can get, whereas the "short bus" is much closer to realism in appearance and racing in general. If you want to talk buggy, then the HPI 5B and the Losi SCB are the clear choices there, 2wd and 4wd are again not close.

I dont care either way, I ran Gas ST back in the day and I assume I will run ST now if it actually takes off, I just dont like blind bashing like "short bus" and "real truck" when it is clearly off base.



The statement he is making is the same one that was made by Horizon/Losi in the Youtube video. The "Chassis" is a 10 year old design. Adding some new composite plastic material, or changing the length or width by a few millimeters does not a new chassis make. It simply updates an old design. All companies out there have done nothing to ST or buggy over the last 8 - 10 years except update old tech and sell you it all over again for another $300. TLR has brought out brand new, game changing designs with the 22/22T. That's the difference.
+1. Exactly!

This is about the 22T so haters go away. those who like it want to buy it or race stadium trucks discuss.....i hope there is a revitalization of the class it was always my favorite.
They would weight 1/1000 or 4 pounds, and a very average speed around various tracks is around 11 mph.

OK. I am comparing average speed to top speed.

Why 1/1000? Take 10 RCs and line them up in a line, now it is as long as full size, but not as wide or tall. Now lay out a grid of RCs on the ground, 10 x 10. Now stack them 10 grids high. You have 1000 RCs to make the size of the full vehicle.

you put too much thought into it. lol.........

simple fact is that they would be too slow to have any real fun with if we were worried about scale realism

Per an earlier post, the standard pack will work in mid or rear configuration.
