    This was a project they did a couple of years back. We where all hopping for a re-release or updated SRT but nothing every happened. I had one of those trucks back when they where new and it was a...

    I'm on the fence on this one. If it comes with the 550 I'm buying a pair of them for me and the kid. If they are only offered with the brushless system I'll most likely pass.

    Great looking truck...

    Funny you should say that. It was a Packard straight 8 that we rebuild that made me get rid of the 1500 lbs stand I had. Not sure what it weighted but by the time we had it assembled it was all the...

    This is exactly why I feel they should bring an 1/8 scale buggy to market. What Traxxas does best is bring new people into RC and lets face it. The average person is not going to buy any of the...

    I think we're more likely to see a 4x4 buggy before we see a new rusty or bandit. I'm not sure there is a market for a 4x4 stadium truck and a 4x4 bandit just doesn't make sense to me..

    I'm going with the Red and black. As for dropping the body down. I looked at the mounts at IHobby and you can simply unscrew them and trim the post down so that will be easy. It also looked like...

    I sat the 2WD and the 4WD side by side at IHobby and they where pretty much the same length and width. The 4x4 is no where near the size of a Slash.

    I want the 550 because of the ridiculous amount of torque it makes. This thing is not a crawler. No lockers, no low range. It more of a rough terrain off roader or what some might call a rock racer.

    You can get cheaper Engine stands at places like harbor freight, Pep Boys etc but watching your motor bounce around when turning the motor over or rolling it across the shop is a bit unnerving to say...

    I would guess the price will be the same as the 4x4 Slash. They will most likely sell the first run at $399 then drop the price after Christmas. The prices always come down $40-$50 after the car has...

    I too saw these at IHobby and the pics on that poster are ummm welll........ Lets just say they look better from a distance.. The cars really looked nice in just the plain solid color paint jobs.

    I run twin 700HO on my E-Revo and it's a torque monster. I'm not even sure what the gearing is but on a pair of 2S ******* Lipo's the truck tops out just a hair short of 40 mph. We radared it at...

    With an electric drill it can be done in about 30 mins. By hand you're looking at 2 hrs and a lot of cussing.

    I agree with Rob.. The 550 brushed motor would be a great setup for the Summit. I personally like the little summit better than it's big brother. I'm actually glad they got rid of the 2 Speed and all...

    In my opinion YES there is that much difference. My buddy owns a number of the LiFe packs has let me run them on occasion. I ran a 2S LiFe in my Slash VXL and was bored to death with it.

    I'm not going to try to talk you into LiPo as it is clear you have concerns but I will tell you that after experiencing 2S LiPo running 2S LiFe pack is about as much fun as watching paint dry.

    Yeah it'll be fine. Just make sure they're tight. We broke 2 studs off my old Chevy one night and drove all the way back from Florida on 3 studs.
