Just got it. Sure does have some weight to it lol. As for whether it was worth the $85.....its got a Go-tech .21 and also came with an HPI Nitro star 3.5 also a bunch of spare wheels/tires....so id say not a bad deal.

I found the official thread for it. Seems like people like it. I bought it because it came with a spare motor. I didnt even want another buggy but it seemed like a smart move. So now the kids have the tr2 scte, i have my 8b and the wife can have the zx1.5r.

Put the .25 hpi motor in yesterday. Works quite well. Its got a 3 shoe composite clutch tho. What a major difference between that and my 4 shoe aluminum clutch on my 8b. The power is snappy as hell in the eight, the caster takes its sweet time lol Im thinking that maybe putting a pair of aluminum shoes in will help. Ill keep a single comp shoe so it doesnt have quite the bite that my losi has as my wife will likely drive it. It needs to have better maners than my losi.

Is there anything i should know about pillow balls? It seems a bit more sloppy than my losi
