Don't get too hung up on the name. It's a Buggy with Monster Truck tires.

Get hung up on the fact you don't see too many 1/5 scale anything doing even one back backflip let alone Two.

Very nice driving and control Trout. Look forward to the dualing 5B's and then the dual 5B double backflips.

Was just curious. I'd try backflipping my gas buggy if I had ramp specs, lol.

Dude, that's so awesome!
Trout, how much does that rig weigh, RTR?
And if I keep seeing your rigs an vids, I'll end up pulling a loan to hang with the 1/5 crew!

With 2 X 8000MAH 4S batteries it comes in right about 50 pounds+. Yeah maintaining a stable of 1/5 scale brushless monsters isnt cheap, but it is freaking fun.

That's silly heavy! I'd be very interested to know how much it weighs without tires and bats.

I think my gas buggy is just around 35, with 34cc reed motor. That might have been with stock tires though, they are very light for 1/5.

Losi 5B 30.5lbs
Leopard Motor 2.56lbs
Leopard BL5/HW Max5 ESC .75lb
Mad Max Tires 7lbs
4S Batteries 2.7lbs
Hitec 845WP Servos 1lb
Misc 1lb

So a minimum of 45.5lbs and probably closer to 50 lbs when you throw in Trouts balls for DBF a 1/5 as Trout stated.

Yeah Mikes probably closer, well call it 46 pounds. Regardless, it takes two hands to pick it up, lol.

NICE control. Awesome jump.
there is NOTHING like brushless power and torque. flying a 35lb+ toy car like most can a 7lb toy car.
