What do you think of these?
« on: Dec 02, 2012, 09:15:11 PM »
My uncle got one of these crawlers, I got to mess around with it a little yesterday and it seemed pretty fun. So now I'm looking into maybe getting one. But what do you guys think of them?
I don't want to spend over $200 because I really just want one to screw around with. Any opinions or other options would be great. Thanks guys!

I love hobbypartz.... however, a lot of their products are rebadges of other products and knockoffs. Generally their stuff is preetty good. But I think with rc vehicles, you get what you pay for. For a crawler, I would go axial

Well I got one, came in the mail today. I like it a lot, fun to screw aroun with and pretty tough. Haven't got to take it into rocks yet, maybe once it dries up I will. Also the charger is slow as hell. Anyways, pictures!

Custom made chassis, yeah I've modded quite a bit actually. I'm running berg gears in the front axle, plastic gears in the rear, custom servo/battery mount, custom links and drag link/tie rod, aluminum front knuckles, and cut n shut tires.

Pretty much lol. The gear cases, axle tubes, axle shafts, motors, rear knuckles, and rx/tx are all original.

Pretty cool.  I'd probably spend that money on a Marlin product though.  Maybe a short throw shifter.  Or some sliders.

Or maybe I should quit building my truck and change my hobby to RC crawlers.  Cheaper. :headscratch:
2000 3.4L xtra-cab Tacoma.
Icon C/Os
Marlin 1200lb. clutch
Marlin short shifter

2005 4.0L xtra-cab Tacoma
King Resi C/Os and Total Chaos UCAs
Waiting on Marlin for the RA60 Short throw shifter...Hint Hint

^ Who let Wainiha into the mainland?? :yikes: - Big Mike
