I'm curious as to the running weight, any chance we could get that , sounds like a little chassis slap on the jumps probably just to light of shock oils or the ride height looks low as well. Regardless this is gonna be a good one.

That's funny you guys ask what's special about this truck compared to the others.. every truggy is an extension of its buggy.. this truck will be the same.. no one is trying to reinvent the wheel, they're just putting they're own spin on it.

Just look at the buggy features and you will see them on the truggy...

We dropped a Speed in it, ran like my buggy, and it was really easy to drive, all we did was change shock positions and springs

Thanks Leon, i guess I didn't realize that as the STRR has different gearing even going bigger on the spur as well.

Is this truck using an extension on the back center cvd, one like a d8t? That was one thing I didn't like on my d8t. Seemed to go through bearings faster in the rear.

Strange that . Ive never seen a bearing fail there on a D8T. That coupling on the D8t is a great idea as it takes loads of stress and vibration out of the drive train.

Ive probably just jinxed myself now
