View Full Version : RC Cruiser for Bridger?

After the trip to the Notch and Bridger seeing both Tim's RC 40 crawler and Marco's RC Pro2 race truck Bridger is hooked. If I wanted to get into something in the $300 range what advice to you RC owners have. I would prefer a crawler that moved slow rather than the high speed stuff. Building an 80 series would be cool for me. Something reliable... Is there such a thing?

Mine's a Tamiya CR-01.. which is one of the lesser quality RC crawlers (compared to Axial, etc.) it's more of an out of the box drive it thing, you wouldn't use it as a platform to build a competition rig. Not sure if you had a chance to see Barry's truck, but I could tell it was put together much better... or maybe mine's just been wheeled hard for a while by 20 different drivers.. I think 40's should be kind of quirky to drive anyway, that's what makes them special.

Here's what I have, brand new: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamiya-23656-RTR-R-C-CR-01-Toyota-Land-Cruiser-Red-BRAND-NEW-IN-BOX-/150813657551?pt=Radio_Control_Vehicles&hash=item231d31c9cf

I have a new 40 body and 80 body, but they are in a tub in the attic- I just can't seem to need another hobby, so it doesn't get much attention.

You could buy Bridger a bunch of RCs that he can break and you won't cry over before you spend 300.00

We bought ours at Wally world. They have a 90 replacement no questions asked with receipt, after that you can buy the 1 or 2 year replacement program for $3.00..

We returned our green one on the way home from CM and picked a blue pick up truck.

If anybody wants a CCO1 you can have mine for free. Its a roller with a 55 motor and the 80 body

If Corbet doesn't claim this, I'll take it. Lilah has been asking about as well...

I'm definitely interested. Any more info to be had. I don't even know what a CCO1 is :o Part of me is asking why anyone would put a 2F from a 55 into an perfectly good 80 series? But a quick search shows its a basic RC chassis with an 80 body? That might be a good place to start with a 2yr old.

Found that. So does it just need a controller? Anything else? I can handle the shipping if you can get it to fedex.

This is what Jacket's son has. I've had my eye on it for Ferguson. Not a crawler, but not as fast as Marco's. Get an extra battery and an AC/DC quick charger. Good starting point without spending too much money but better than Wall-mart quality.

You already got a Cruiser body, right? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamiya-CR-01-Jeep-Wrangler-58429-ARTR-/320907689090?pt=Radio_Control_Vehicles&hash=item4ab796bc82

It came with an 80 series body and I ordered a new 80 series body from Ebay. Although there were no decals included? Kind of sucked. Your link took me to a Jeep body????

Real, adjustable coil-overs flex nice.

I think that's the one Dad needs;) You know so he can play trucks with his son and his new RC Cruiser.

Hey Tim is that just like yours but with the WRONG body? $179 seems like a decent price. How much do 40 bodies go for?

Corbet

anyone use the Axial XR10? It's between that and the Wraith for me. I don't know enough to know if I can get my 80 series body on the XR10. It looks really low profile on the chassis part. http://www.axialracing.com/ftp/xr10/new/main.html

The XR10 is a MOA rig (motor on axle). It will cost more in the long run due to mutiple speed controls and upgrades needed. The Wraith/SCX10 are better options for a scaler type build. I'm looking at building a hilux off the SCX10 platform.

For now I still just race at MHOR.

I'm saving pennies and want a fun rc crawler for the godson to play with, but mostly for me. What are y'all using these days?

I have the new RC4WD TF2. It's a mini truck crawler, right up your ally. Tons of upgrades and you can completely build it out. The one I have is even red.

I've found that the Traxxas trucks are built the best and are by far the fastest (I have one that does 60 with no upgrades.) The Traxxas charging system is far superior to the others as well. My Traxxas vehicles are the only ones that have not broken anything, and they've been beat.

Tamiya makes the CR-01 Crawler chassis. That's formthe fj40 and Fjcruiser. That's a 20+ hour product to build those. You have to set up your gears and dial in the shocks..... After you build the shock and fill it with shock oil. It's pretty in depth. Even the gears have to be set up.

Axial has a some really cool options too. I usually take those to moab with me because they are so fun over obstacles and terrain.
