You may want to triple check your spelling. Go ahead and Google how you misspelled the name of the vehicle (I didn't, but I can imagine what it would bring up).

Oh no not a "twink hammer"! LOL

Now the Twin Hammers looks to be a promising rig. I like the idea of a rock racer type vehicle. Something you can crawl with and still run at a decent speed.

It's "Vaterra", not "vetarra". And I totally want one too.

Our local track is already discussing a race class for it similar to the King of the Hammers race. It would use our short course track and part of the crawler course that's next to it. Should be a good time. Several of us have pre-ordered these things.

Definitely post some reviews once y'all get some runtime on them.

Cool idea.

I wanted one of these as soon as I saw one.
Happened to stop in at my LHS the day after they were released, and they had stock!
Any word on if/when they'll bring out a roller?

Drove a Twin Hammers today for a couple minutes, cool car. But that battery is pretty small and when a brushless system goes in MAH may be a challenge, it does look like a shorty pack fits sideways. But that whole articulating thing is sweet, it crawls right up vertical stuff and has a nice looking ride, jumps ok too.

Instead of a 2 speed tranny it should have come w/ a dig.

Maybe not, the 2 speed thing works, gives low range climbing ability with high range speed. One trannie set with dig would not be able to do that. You would have dig on a high geared trannie which would make it harder to scale anything.
It is a rock racer not a crawler, even so you can put the front tire up against a wall and it crawls right up.

Even if it drives like crap, i'd keep it as a shelf queen it looks so good. This is one of those rtr's you just wish that they had a kit option. If there was a kit, i'd buy it in a hearbeat.

I like the concept. I have an Axial Wraith and an EXO and sometimes I think about crunching them up together.
