    Thumbs up Just pre-ordered my 1/10 Rally 4WD

    I couldn't stand it anymore. I just pre-ordered my 1/10 Rally 4wd from Tower in........Orange/Black. I just see to many yummy things on this setup. This will be my first in the Rally market and a real on roader. Prolly my first time to take advantage of the Gold Member Discount. LOL

    How many others have or are following my lead????

    I'll prolly check out the stock electrics and end up moving up to something with a little more power and efficiency. I do have the mighty CC 3800 4-pole motor that would be perfect for this setup. More is better but I think this will be light enough for that to do an excellent job. Just have to pick up an MMP or the ET-3S.

    Anyways I did it!! So now the dreaded wait begins!!!

    Ha ha I knew you would give in a order one... I'm not sure if I want the green one, or the orange one. I really like them both.

    Well congrats, you did the right thing IMO and you of all should have one to keep us updated on what you can and can't do to it LOL!

    Versatile fun should come from this chassis and fit up with M-Monster power could be wicked fun!
    Seems that picking tires will be a fun challenge or require several sets for different surface running.......good for the tire guys!

    I have a question, what do you think of the Castle 2650kv in a ride like this???

    I might have to do the same I don't have the patience for a roller on eBay to become available.

    I already have the body and most of the upgraded electronics on hand....I just hope traxxas doesn't push the release date.

    Thanks!!!

    I run the CC MM 2650kv in my Sl4sh and its a beast. I like it way more than the 2400kv. I think this would benefit best with the first.

    LOL LOL LOL

    I know I know I know....I really like taking my time though. I'm actually working on a secret project to. I just have a little bit more to do then its done. I'm going to give the Rustler maybe another 2 weeks tops for completion, unless I get a wild hair. If I wasn't working so much it probably would be on the road eating up some pavement. I have a blast building so it keeps me busy.

    Appreciate the congrats!! I'm super excited!!

    The orange one by far is the best looking of the bunch! I'm going to take the wait and see approach, but it's so hard to keep my hand off the wallet!

    I'm ordering one and plan to see how fast I can reach 70mph.. We all know the Black and Blue Rally is faster than the other colors.

    I want a 'clear' one so I can do up my own paint! LOL Yellow and Black? Is someone going to order Red?

    Sounds like maybe Traxxas and Proline and JConcepts can now come up with some cool new bodies too!

    OG, blue looks sweet...........not sure about the white wheels though?

    Hmmmm... I wonder is the Rally's tires (not rims) would fit on Pro Line rims or stock Traxxas rims... But is they don't fit, that would suck because I really like the Rally's tires tread...
