    very nice (quote) ******* 5.8 22.2 volt lipo battery very strong! $160.00

    he must have got ripped off lol
    http://www.*********.com/*********/s...dProduct=10288

    only $83.58 there ^

    and the body? "TRD Toyota 4 Wheel Parts body look! Modification $30.00"

    that comes with the truck lol unless he put 30$ worth of stickers on it

    well, it still looks like a fair deal.
    even if he added $30 just for painting the body and added an extra $70 to the battery

    Well, it'll still only go about 50 or so because it will flip over without some major modifications so no, won't be the first 80 mph 4x4.

    Just take off the body and you should be good.

    Can anyone say ERBE, common.. LOL 639 shipped from towers. Pick up lipo's off ********* and still have enough for a charger too..

    PS NO SC truck is going to hit 80mph with out taking the lid off... it will fly up in the air by 60mph even with added weight. Most likely around 55 it's going airborn!
    I love you MAN! Need a hug?

    I have had my PE to 66mph and I doubt the slash could do anymore than that. It was so out of control, and the tires looked like they were 1/4 of an inch wide and 7 inches tall...lol

    That is with the MMM 2650 on 4s. and 22t pinion. Think it might be able to break 70mph with the right setup????
    Break it, so you can upgrade it!

    While I think the seller is crazy, he did say it was a platinum which does not come with a radio.

    Yes and no, we got 78mph with an SC8e, it did took off several time from about 75mph though...
    Under 60mph it was very stable.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9N4UaYHydY


    It had well enought power but the truck was almost impossible to run beyond 75mph, it was a lucky run at 78mph my friend was at a little under 3/4 throttle when he stopped.

    On the other run it took off and i almost got it in the legs lol

    This guy seems like a real loser. He probably works at a shop and picks these up for like 3 hundred, then paints a body and calls them "custom projects" (while somehow claiming they are NIB at the same time) and then rips people off for 500 bucks.
    And if you look at the last two posted, he used the same picture of the bare chassis for both. Open one link in their own tab and then click that picture and when you click back and forth....no change.
    Some like R/C's that are fast, others like nitro

    Gotta give him credit though.He sold that thing for $850! I guess it's all about the creative advertising.That and the obvious fact that a sucker is born every day.

    I bet that MMM will fly off that spring board on the first jump. Why not just spend the $1.98 to get the TRX mount for the ESC?...lame

    The dude is free to charge whatever he wants for it. He's not making the buyer click the bids. If someone has the cash to spend, let him.

    Awsome I love the way the SC Trucks crash at High speeds and still are all together. when I started doing ERBE runs it wheelied around 70 and it went airborne I broke $200 in parts. With the Slash so far it just flies through the air and flips alot of times.
    havnt failed I just found 1000 ways that wont work
