What made me laugh the hardest is they include a brushed motor in the kit and instead of including a brushed esc they included a brushless ESC in the kit. (shrug)

The Tamiya TBLE escs that are coming in Tamiya kits can run both brushless and brushed motors which is actually pretty nice.

Right you are! It was always my understanding that brushless and brushed ESCs were not to be mixed (shrug)
On another note WOW this place is so dead. Not even one post in 24 hours in the electric forums?

My wife was just talking about co-worker's son who likes trucks. He is going to Monster Jam and is excited. A big yellow RC dump truck would be a great present for any kid; at any age. I know I would have been in heaven if I had one of these dump trucks back in the day to play in the dirt with.

I need something large and cool for helping with sand castles since we spend all summer on the beach. Thinking something more like a doser. But that bump is cool.

Yay! Ttam's back to RCU, welcome!!

Does the bucket on that truck activate by servo? I'd totally buy it if it did.
