    RE: Caldera SC 10E

    I have bought 2 Caldera's so that is how I love the truck . Very Very Fast ! Only thing bad is the banana plugs , they are yet to ship converters for them . Redcat told me a cople weeks and they should have the right ajustments for the plug type . If you buy talk to Nitrosportsandrunner he will hook you up fast .

    RE: Caldera SC 10E

    there is not any other 4wd short course truck like the caldera really. it has a simple chassis layout, is balanced well and is fairly durable.
    its also very quick on a 2s lipo(as im sure you have seen in utube vids)
    compared to the caldera 10e, which soldier5050 has 2 off, its pretty much the same. just has scale tires instead of monster truck style tires and has a larger front bumper and SC truck body.

    RE: Caldera SC 10E

    Has anybody ran them against any of the other SCT's? How did it do?

    RE: Caldera SC 10E

    Im thinking about converting my Caldera 10e to the SC version. What do you think, just a bumper, tires/wheel, and body, is that all it takes?

    I'd also like to hear if others have run the 10sc against the mainstream sct, and how they compared.

    the bumper piece(wider part) is from the aftershock. as are the tires.
    the bodies however, redcat does not stock them[]
    i have been wondering if a slash body would fit. the wheel base may be close enough to work.

    RE: Caldera SC 10E

    Other then the body ,how is the parts support ? A LHS in my area was carrying Redcat he had a time getting parts. Sometimes when I would order parts from them directly, they would be out of stock. It's been awhile since I gave my Vortex to my cuzand traded my AS8E's.

    RE: Caldera SC 10E

    I own the caldera sc 10e and it holds its own on the track and can take a beating. the spur gear (main gear) is the weak point if mesh is not done properly. You can use the sc10 and slash bodies but you'll have to modify the wheel wells about half inch in the front and back not a big deal though. I am going to be making my own aluminum chassis and adding about a inch in length so that its the same length as the other sc trucks.I am also going to do away with the funny battery strap. I will post pictures when i am done

    at times, redcat does run out of stock on parts. but their are online dealers who carry their own stock.
    www.rufaster.com
    www.urchobby.com.
    each of them have their own stock. so you have 3 different places to look for the same part.
    there may be other online dealer with their own stock. those are just the ones i know of.
