Runs the same ESC as Redcat 80amp hobbywing and no lipos ....and has an analog servo as apposed to digital........ If you where going to race it just invest in a Mugenhttp://www.mugenseiki.com/menueefi.htmor Team associated Truggyhttp://www.teamassociated.com/cars_and_trucks/RC8T/RTR/ .and do a E conv.
or Losi http://www.losi.com/Products/Default...rodID=LOSB0085or the Roller http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Def...rodId=LOSA0805

or buy the pro Caster truggy and use whatever you want...Castle, Tekin, etc....

The problem with doing the e-conversions is that it costs a lot of money to do. Recommending a Mugen with an e conversion will easily top $700. not including a radio, esc, motor, etc..... and then what? The Caster is virtually the same thing with the exception of the layout.

The advantage of the Caster Pro vs a conversion is balance and the capacity to use any batteries you want. If you run other classes or plan on running other classes, you do not need to buy 4s specific batteries.

Well what are your plans with it? Bashing / Racing..... never heard of Caster before this thread looks nice enough....... If you are Bashing and some track time whynot the E Revo Brushless the guy who owns my LHS runs one in the emod races they haveand dominates.......

the best thing about doing your own conversion is you can build exactly what you want with the components you want ... parts availability on the casters in my area are mail order only .. no one will stock them so we all run associated and losi because they have numerous championship titles and parts availability is great everyone has em ...

No big deal on the local parts. Order spares of the most common breaking parts and you'll be good to go. Even if a part breaks that I don't have, shipping is fast enough (at least in the US) that I'll get it plenty fast.

To me, the big diff is that if you are planning to race and aren't good at set up, buy what the locals use. That way you'll be able to get local fast setup info. If that doesn't apply to you, buy what you'd like best.

there ya go...........not many 1/8 brushless rtr truggys out there and as for mail order I have a 1/8 scale truggy that has only mail order available but I found a great dealer who ships to me in about 2days!! and has killer prices.... I over bought in parts beacuase they where so cheap and still have yet to break...... I also own several Traxxas models which break more then my Redcat at least for me......... and when I go to buy Traxxas parts from LHS he somtimes has to order them and his shipments come in once a week... so it is a wash in my op. know Traxxas, Team Assoc, and Losi make some great 1/10 brushless Truggys some 2wd and 4wd that is what I would go with unless you are okay with mail order.

In 1/10th scale theres the hyper 10TT. Not seeing much for 1/8th atleast thats worth it with part support.

because a Revo is nowhere near as durable as a Truggy, and nowhere near as fast on the track.......it would take an amazing driver on the track with a Revo to match an average driver with a Truggy...... thats if the Revo holds together long enough to actually finish the race...Revo's have huge durability issues and usually end up being money pits.....
