The last time I saw one of those has been 4 years ago I think. I watched Taylor James run it when he was with thunder tiger. I would'nt own it no matter what the price. They just arent around and they seem dated to be honest.

yea man if you want to race at least thats really a outdated truggy.

if you really want support at most tracks in the northeast for setup help etc
get a losi 2.0 t or a associated rc8tce.

if your getting a new truggy a rc8tce gives you a way better deal if you want to get a roller and not a rtr truggy

I really liked my TTR ST-1 Pro. If I could find a place to buy them online I would get a couple. Last I seen them amain had them for like 269 for the RTR.
Heck I would almost buy 3 or more of them if I could.
I really Like mine A Whole LOT. I wish I never traded it for a Jato 3.3.

I would chose the TTR ST1 Pro and OR The RTR Version before any Losi Truggy RTR, or Buggy RTR. Maybe even before the RTR RC8T.

I like them that much. Plus they were cheap.( Parts are just hard to find is all now)

Mine handled really well for what I did with it as there were no tracks for 500 miles when I had it. It turned pretty well also. Jumping was really good. The tires tore pretty easy though as I had my GRP .28 Tuned Spec engine in it.

Tower Hobbies now sells Thunder Tiger stuff, they have both the RTRs and the Pro kits, plus all the parts for them as well.

I have one of these as a basher, and let me tell you, I freakin' love it. I totally beat the snot out of it and nothing ever breaks. My only complaint is the body is a bit thin (I'm reinforcing the next one I buy) and the stock steering servo is a bit slow.

I have seen NIB ones show up on eBay and go for like $150, which is an absolute steal. I bought mine on eBay from a hobby shop that was clearing out some inventory.

I don't know if I'd go as far to say that I'd take a ST-1 over some other truggies out on the market. That's a really bold statement to make.

I can say having seen a few run and driven a couple, they can take a beating. That is about it though. They are "old tech" for sure, though in the right hands can be a winner. If the OP is just looking to try the calss out or isn't going to be super serious about it, it'll be fine. For the prices that have been given out for the ST-1, I'd say the D8T is a better buy. It's close to the same price and is more on par with the current truggies out there. Just a thought.

99% of the parts made for the Caster k8t pro are a direct replacement for the 5t....and when the 5 came out, they totally re-designed it....but as far as 6t compatability....i know that the diff cases, ring and pinon gears, and spur gear all work with the 5t....oh and the body if you use the 6t body mounts

I ran mine all of last year for the racing season and really loved it. The only beef i had was that by the end of the year i couldnt push it any harder, I had reached its limits. I took second overall in the sportsman class with it and should have taken first but nerves get me when im leading lol. Its tough as nails and can be really pushed hard if you have it set up right but it still doesnt handle as well as the new age truggys. I look forward to running my D8T this year in the expert class.

I started running an St-1 and loved it! I swapped out that rtr motor for a better one and the truck was awesome. I then switched to the Tamiya 801xt and boy did I make a mistake. I had the 801xt with all the goodies and it was a nightmare to maintain. The St-1 never broke a part and took a pounding, just routine maintenance like shock and diff oil replacement.

The ST1 is outdated yes, but it is an excellent truggy built like a tank and can take tons of punishment!
I love mine's and am planning on buying another one in the future. Its tons a info for it on www.rcuniverse.com just go to the truggy forum and there's a thread for the ST1 there!
Don't listen to what other people tell you cause at the end of the day its you that have to drive the truck not other people in these forums...If you like durability, good handling, easy maintenance then the ST1 is for you...GPM even makes aluminum a arms for it!

Default ST1 PRO & RTR

I have both the ST1 PRO and a ST1 RTR and I have had a great time with both of mine.

The PRO does go quicker than the rtr, but the OS 28 might have something to do with that.

I have had both of the rtr servos fail, but am still using the radio and reciever.

They take a bit of setting up though a I have found the steering to be a bit twitchy for me but it could be my inexperience.

Regards
