Default the CEN racing reeper / colossus XT / american force 1/7 monster truck

Seems like they is no thread about those trucks so i started one !

i ordered my colossus xt and i can't wait to see how this thing jumps !
i choose the roller version :
https://fatkidrc.com/products/cen-co...r-truck-roller

thanks to https://fatkidrc.com/ for the fast and kind answers !

of course i checked many videos and discussed with the guys from the CEN group on FB

for example, i learned that the colossus XT and the reeper are the same car actually, except the body colour.
i also saw some guy using their trucks on 8s power

so i'm really looking forward to put my hand on my biggest RC ever : the CEN has 7.1 inch tires and is almost 30 inch long ! wheelbase is 18.5 inch !

i like those vids, the reeper runs really nicely :

i don't have a xmaxx, it's too mainstream and most vids about traxxas are advertising ( traxxas gives free cars to the biggest youtuber ) ! i like to use the more unknow stuff that might actually be better !

I had sticker shock on that roller, then I realized that you must not be in the USA.

lol..... "Sticker shock" is a term here when you are surprised at how high a price is.

double flips, that's how i like it !


and a nice flip with much power, but i can see the rear suspension twisting, i don't like that !


another double backflip : it shows again how the tire twist the suspension during backflips... i hope i can find a solution for this...

i'm mostly afraid of how the plastics and the CVDs will hold up !

but i get what you mean : alza make dope looking parts and i often see full alza tuned up monster trucks with, indeed, 15min of fame !!

but i don't have the money for such expensive parts : so i make my own mods with cheap ( and soft ) aluminium ! and i still run a 20 usd radio that can only stand and provide 6V to the servo !
