More. Essentially it is an extended S10b, but there are important feaures for a short course truck like a center diff, replaceable rear metal skid plate, new towers, and a few other cool things.

It might be the angle, but I can say that the truck is just as wide as any other.

this truck shares parts with the s10b but it is also an entirely different layout than the s10b.

yes, It is NOT a S10B turned into a sct but shares a lot of the parts as diffs, etc so make it really cool if you have a s10b

I ran the truck today with great success. I even hit a Tekno truck head on in the straight as he crossed over on me and believe it or not nothing broke.. This truck doesn't even have all the cool Aluminum upgrades on it yet. I hope to do all the Pro upgrades this week. It feels really light to me as my other sct is the 1/8th based caster rapture..

Just coming from experience, a true 1/10 sc ist gonna do well against the more common 1/8 models out now. Being light helps in acceleration and some cornering, but you will lose mist bumping battles. They will send your truck flying.

After racing this truck for awhile I can say it can easily hold its own. It may be light but it doesn't get thrown around by the tanks as much as you would think. If anything, Ive been able to avoid the attacks because the truck is just so nimble and can get away from situations like that.

seems the thing the AE guys are going with are targeting really lightweight setups and using that as an advantage as going heavy didn't work so well against the heavies like the Tekno and Losi.

Knowing the passion caster guys have for there vehicles, I look forward to seeing this do quite well out there.

Now, chassis pics

Youre right now that you point it out. Then again, you dont see as many AE trucks compared to the Teknos and TLRs.

Thank you, we are really trying to make everything right after the mess we had early this year. Hopefully a few more guys will be running this truck now that it is nearly here. I for one will be taking it with me to all the races I attend because its just so much fun to drive, and once it has a decent setup you can just drive it and do well without changing everything.

I don't believe so because the truck is not actually out.

No chassis pics yet. You can try to ask questions and if i feel like it I may answer them lol

lol.

For wheels, what offset is used?

What kind of weight are you seeing fully ready to go, body included? (please state the running gear)

What pitch are the spur gears?

Wheel off set is the slash rears for both front and back. The gear pitch is 32 pitch. Mine weighs in at a feathery 5.3 lbs. I plan on using tungsten weight to add some weight to the truck. I like tungsten for its small size which allows me to be more exact with weight placement.
