Default Decision Made!!

I have made my decision on my next RC...the Team Associated SC10 4x4. I chose this over the nitro Losi TEN SCT due to the fact I already have lipos. In addition to that, the cost of nitro fuel is pretty high, and I'm sure if anything happened to the nitro motor, it would be sitting for a while. I can't wait to get this. It's been a long time coming, but I finally decided. When I get it, I'll post some pics, cause I haven't seen many threads or pics on this site of it. I appreciate the help from others and what they have suggested. This is a great community

The SC10 is a great truck, I bought one when they first came out.

Is this a reliable and strong truck? it seems quite expensive or is that a normal price range for off roaders?

It's more of a racer, so not as strong as a lot of the bashers.

Shhhh...don't tell anyone, but I'm still looking at other models. Not quite sold yet on the SC10 4x4 lol. Was pondering the 'Pede 4x4 VXL with aftermarket CVD's.

before xmas i was shopping for a new car and was torn between the emaxx brushed and the pede 4x4 vxl to romp around the snow. i was really leaning towards the emaxx because of the larger size better for the snow and it only being 20bucks more and the biggest reason the stock pede looks like crap with the body so raised

but in the end the pede won just because it was brushless took a single lipo and when running in wet weather a 10th scale system is cheaper then a 8th

but after 3 times driving in the snow i gotta say i dislike snow driving to much cleaning and drying after so at this point im just preparing it for summer


over all what ive driven of it im happy

I love the look of the Trenchers and Desperado rims. I think at this point its a toss up between the SC10 4x4 and Pede 4x4 VXL.. I'm definitely stuck on both, and obviously want the 4wd power lol.

Always many options with Traxxas. That's why I kind of like them
