ORIGINAL: Hack u 2
On the Electric Lightnings I like the Alunimum plate down center. I have the EPX drift and pro but I only took them out of box to inspect and look at. Yeah I am a bigger and bigger fan everyday for Redcat. How do the chassis hold up with all the rocks and debris...soft plastic/ hard. The ground clearance is nice on the STR.
well, i got mine used.
when i moved the Rx, i damaged the antenna. it went 20feet from me, then took off WOT down the street. crossed a main street and then hit a house at full speed with a 2s lipo pack. car was fine, tho by the time i got to it the tires were completly worn down(from spinning all 4 tires while up against the house) the car's body was dented on the front.
i have also jumped this car off a skate board ramp with no damage.
my buddy has a tc3. now, the tc3 out handles the lightening for sure. but the tc3 also seems the break down every other time he takes it out. he has had the steering get jammed by rocks, the camber link break, the motor move and strip the spur and more.
with the exception of killing tires, the lightening holds up very well!
i have a couple of bodies for it, plus i have street/rally and drift tires for it.
