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?

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.
