    I love my 4x4!

    Lets hear from those of you who LOVE their slash 4x4!

    this truck has re-sparked my love of Traxxas vehicles! I have sold my 2wd because it doesn't even compare to the 4x4! The 4x4 is the most fun I've had with an R/C in a while!

    Please post with your positive thoughts...
    Break it, so you can upgrade it!

    I used to live in the Sacramento area. Great area for R/C's, I miss it!

    Just got a PE yesterday evening at the LHS. Ran it today and loved it! Trying to figure out what colors to paint the body. Looking forward to having lots of fun with this truck!

    so fun on the residential streets. the city is too cheap to pay for snow clearing, but it makes for lots of fun.

    no broken parts except for the summit LED's i put on. the frail little wires can't take a beating.

    I absolutely love this truck, I've owned an ERBE for guite some time but due to not being waterproof don't get to go bashing in the mud with it and thanks to my PE that has changed today. I couldn't stop myself today bashing in the mud.

    I love mine to pieces... literally. I love the fact you can do so much with it. A few broken parts is fine with me for the fun I get out of it. They are parts that I want to upgrade anyway. I will be doing many things with this truck for a long time to come.

    I absolutely LOVE mine! This is my first CORR-style truck. I've got a e10 drifter that's fun...but this truck trumps it hands-down in the FUN FACTOR department!

    I just got my Blue LiPo 2S1P 25C batteries yesterday and soldered on the traxxas connectors and charged one up and ran it. WOW...while technically the truck SHOULD be slower with the stock (13/54) gearing, it really doesn't FEEL like it and the TORQUE is amazing! The thing wants to pull left every time I nail the throttle as soon as the slipper engages...so much so that I've gotta counter-steer or modulate the power delivery.

    BUT...it's FUN and I'm planning to head to the track for the first time on Monday for some practice time.

    I've broken a rear axle hub carrier and replaced it with an aluminum part, something that I intended to do eventually anyway. So no complaints with broken parts yet. Probably going to grab a set of new 'shoes' (ProLine Calibers) pretty soon for the track. I'm absolutely HOOKED! There's no hope for me now! LOL

    I'd love mine too if Tower hobbies would get off their butts, or traxxas, and send out some PE's. I ordered mine on the 6th of Jan. I know it will be worth the wait, but I have my 2WD with the protrac suspension kit to hold me over. Don't sell your 2WD, get the proline kit, makes a world of difference. I'm to the point now, that I love SC trucks, selling my XXXTcr and soon my RB5. SC is the way to go, lots more durable and way more fun! HURRY TRAXXAS, get some PE's out!

    had my first real run, on an empty hilly golf course with a bunch of jumps...incredible. the truck is fast, durable, jumps great, usually lands on its feet after taking a tumble, and the range on the new radio is great, i could barely see the thing i was running it out so far. seeing it catch air, with the wheels spinning, is very cool. running 5000mah SMC lipos, awesome run time, and the packs don't really dump, they just stop. Great truck. Only problem, my MERV is not going to get a lot of love...
