Associated must not be doing so well. People want a new comp level sct, and they just give us some rtr.

Not even counting the b5 series that IMO looks like a yoke and a b4 cross, and the b44.3, which is a car that wasn't even needed.

They're just going to be eating their tails with this one. I don't think they're going to be pulling any customers from other brands. You just now have 2 choices if you were considering a prolite...

I seen the price tag for it yikes ! Way overpriced. At least they should of added the 16MM shocks as Alum bodied.

There is hardly any difference from the Prolite truck .

Target market for this truck?...The same guy who would walk into his LHS and be looking at a RTR Traxxas 4x4. RTR's make money. So what if ThunderTiger (AE) wants a little piece of the pie.

Not disagreeing with that, but they now have 2 trucks that are practically the same... One is a little more geared towards racing however not nearly enough to actually be interesting to a racer.

Traxxas did it right with the platinum, although many would have preferred to see a straight up race kit,lower price and higher end parts but you loose the RTR factor.

Other than the ProLite, this will be the lowest priced RTR 4x4 SC on the market. But, the big question is, What will it take to make this truck competitive?

The ProSC is not even out yet.
Maybe someone that has an upgraded ProLite can chime in on how they handle?

I was wondering if there is a list of main differences between this and the Prolite? I tried my best to compare the two on Associated's website. Tires, shocks, and body? I know people were having problems with the prolite breaking front CVA's and the ProSc says "upgraded CVA's" so I wonder if they beefed them up since it was an issue in the prolite?
