Default Thinking about a SC8

Hello guys. Currently i own a revo 3.3. its a good truck but i am thinking about stepping up. I was at a race last weekend and couldnt help but be in Awe by the Associated SC8's.
So now i am going to get one. What is your take on the SC8?

I'm loving mine. I don't race though...........yet. I'll tell you one thing - the SC8 can take a serious beating and keep coming back for more. The roll cage works.

I love my Sc8!! had a 3.3 awhile ago, it was fun but nothing is better than driving a mini trophy truck. The shocks are alright, the big bore kit is the way to go! I havent had any issuses with the motor which I hear alot of good things about. I convinced a guy while standing in my local hobby shop to just buy one, he did and LOVES it!

I haven't taken mine off any huge jumps yet, but it does well off of 2 or 3 footers. Most people seem to upgrade to the big bore shocks though.

I first got a slayer and it was fun but what i hate is that it loves to traction roll but i just gott a SC8 and wish i got this first. You will have fun doing controllable drifts all day long and it doesnt even roll over on asphalt. Get one its worth it but in the future i wanna get a Brushless mamba monster cause Nitro gets $$$ in the long run
