Default Redcat Rampage (Version 3) MT 1/5 Scale Gas Truck

I had a really bad time with one of those. I really gave it the college try too. I couldn't keep the damn thing from breaking for stupid, stupid stuff. Thing left such a bad taste in my mouth I am not going Redcat again. I ended up selling it and getting another HPI Baja...

I did a huge review of the Redcat Rampage MT with all of my trials and tribulations. If I can find it, I will post it here.

I couldn't get through a single tank without breaking something that would take the truck down for a week waiting for parts. I never had a single good run on that truck even after really trying.

Is the red cat rampage mt pro better or tougher than the regular version or would all the aluminum hop ups that come with the pro version easier to break?
Appreciate any replies....

Version 3 isn't a bad truck.. Stay away from the pro..very heavy and aluminum bends easily due to weight..also a lot of your drive terrain breakage is from the big tires...
