Default can it bash

Can the sc10 4wd do some bashing. I'm just talking about a little not like "abuse". Can it do jumps every now and then or are they just for racing. If not what upgrades could I do to make it more of a basher and more durable. Thank your

Yes you can bash it. Bash away. 4X4 sct racing is a bash fest. We only avoid mud and water puddles.

To me bashing is an any running off the track. It is not the same as abusing.

But at the same time just about any short course truck will take and dish out a good dose of abuse by the nature of the weight and fender rubbing driving style they tend to to get. That is why the 1:10 buggy guys do not like to run with them on or off the track

Put the absolute best servo and steering parts in it you can find, because steering and servo repairs on that truck are time consuming. Get the VTS slipper , the exotex locking hex for the slipper , aluminum wheel hexs, the FT chasss brace that runs front to rear , and the aluminum blet tensioner pullys. That will make for a very tough sc10 4x4

The sc10 is a brilliant basher, even though it wasn't designed for bashing and nobody uses it for bashing. But it's a good basher anyway
