Default Shredder XT 1/6 Scale Brushless Electric Truck?



Anyone own one?
I've tried researching old posts on here but came up with nothing. The vidoes look allright but have only found 2 or 3 of them. The truck looks to be built alittle on the fragile side, but I am not used to seeing electric large scale. I have an FGand an MCD (gas) and thought this might be a more in-expensive way to go.

I would also be looking to try and make this an MT but cant seem to find different gear ratios or tires or pretty much any upgrade parts lol..other than the redcat site.


Just opening up a discussion to see peoples opinions on this model, not gas VS electric..lol

I'm not sure, but it looks to be as cheaply made as the price tag would indicate. No reputable maker of the motor or speed controller? 3mm thick chassis? I don't know how effective that will be as it is the same or less than most quality 10th and 8th scale MT's and buggys. Its up to you if you want to take the gamble on one to try it out or not. If you do, be sure to post your experiences with this model for us here at RCU! Good Luck!

Did you end up buying this truck? I'm really curious what you thought of it if you did. Thanks
