Movies dont do a thing for me either. If anybody gets them, start saving them and e-mailing them out. Or post them on another server, rc-pics.net. That traxxas site is getting hit hard right now.

LOL Thermal, your snifing to much glue, this new traxxas truck would not even beat the 13+ year old Nitro Thunder King design on the race track.

Gator, you are nothing but a trouble maker. If you dont like the truck, stay out of this thread. We heard your opinion, now leave. Dont cluster this thread with your garbage.

Thermal i got them to work, and their nothing special. Their only like 15 sec long. Ill tell you this, just like the LST the suspension looks REALLY squishy

but it also looks like it has tons of power

now all i want to know is the price and and if its more dourable then the MAX

Thermal take your own advise, you are the the biggest TM on this site.

Ray, i just got them working. That suspension looks super plush, and you are right, it appears to be wicked fast.

Gator8, id love to hear how you think im a trouble maker. Again, another statement you just cant back up. Do us a favor, please stay out of this thread.

I agree....just saying that the craze now seems to be "bigger is better"......they could have upgraded the maxx and had a true 1/8 scale to compete w/ the big boys. Cen has the MT2 and soon to be Genesis. Then they could have the best of both worlds

I really dont see it bein a racer anyways. A basher! The only things that will interchange between it and the maxx is Wheels, Tires, clutch and the pillow balls are it.
