Pricing for the Redcat 2x4 is up now. $399 plus shipping for the roller. No motor, no radio and no servos.

Differences are tires, wheels, gearing, bumpers and body posts. You can get them with blue or red painted bodies, or clear bodies.

thanks for the quick reply i just love the wheels on the buggy. i think it would look good with the truck body, instead of those monster truck wheels more of a stadium truck look. Something i was considering unless the body cost $150 like the other 1/5 scale bodys.

Bodies are $69, if you take care of them, its a good deal.

Looks great Wicked. I'll be putting AT's all around mine and lowering the truck body.

Well I am only comparing the pipe to the stock muffler and from that's its a MEGA improvement, actually a whole different truck. I am though in the next day or so going to order the DOM. I have one on my baja and love it so I assume its going to be a improvement over the Redcat pipe.



Yeah Iwant to lower my body to but the redcat pipe won't let me lower it anymore.

Check out Pythonmotorsports.com for their Rampage DDM pipes. Great deals going on right now. I just ordered mine from them last week.

Hey Ramtech can get som epix with out the body on?   I just wanted to see of you had to do anything special to get your body  low like that.   I have a DOM on th way so i will be able to lower my body some more.  THe redcat pipe dosn't let you lower the body much.

out the box the trucks have a few teething problems that are easily fixed mostly for no cost, i can testify that they are extremely tough after a few mods...i beat on mine mercilessly and have few issues now apart from driver error. Check out the redcatrampage forum if you're thinking of buying one. Well worth the money in my opinion

Default RE: Redcat Rampage MT5

here is my latest "widowmaker" project. started with a rampage mt. i think it came out perfect for me. was looking for something i could run in the parking lot on sunday nights before i go back to work on mondays. i wanted something that i wouldnt be tempted to lounch of cliffs and something i could shelf at the end of the day with out having a panic attach becouse its muddy or dirty. also something that was pretty eye catching. i think i did it with the pink. it looks completly diffrent next to my other 2 ramps wich are set-up for off roading abuse..

the hole project with everything only cost me $1200, including radio gear and a "sick" o'neills mill. fell free to ask any questions

are you refering to this video? its about 20' high.. it was my second attempt and i broke a stearing arm and tie rod.. anything would break on that jump. the tt are tougher then the mt.. i have 3 and love them all.. i sold an ss to get my first one and 2 fg's to get my second one.. well worth it for the cash

I concur, I beat on my truck without mercy and to be honest i haven't spent a great deal of cash and it's tough as old boots, bang for the buck you can't beat the rampage
