Â*So perhaps an update since I've ran this 3 times.
So far, the servo has given out, the body has been wrecked to dust, I mean the whole rear above the back window, completely cracked clean straight across, among random pieces just busting out of the body now leaving holes.
the front bottom shock retainers keep coming off, and today I suddenly had only front wheel drive. Â*Fortunately, it was the allen set screw had came loose on the cup that attaches to the main gear.
So, blown servo, busted body, shock retainer keeps coming off(lucky to have found it each time so far). Â*What's my opinion?
I actually love the truck. Â*It's like a spider monkey on crack when you put a 2s lipo in it. Â*But you were right dads, it's not nearly as durable as a Slash.
So, I bought a Slash off a buddy last night. Â*Now, I think as much as I like the Sc10, I'm going to part with it.
For one, while looking for a steel pinion at my local hobby town, and one too many times of them asking what it was for, what's it for, what's it for, I finally said a redcat, and it was like the world stopped for a second. Â*Customers started whispering. Â*No biggie, I assume they have never driven one...so I forgive them.
Just the way the employee acted after that, was less than desirable. Â*Like it's not a hobby, and the important thing is bling, not having fun....
And the tires are just so big on the Sc10, and the grip on my buddies track, is way subpar. Â*So I put a spare set of stock slash tires/wheels on, and of course it slowed way down. Â*IDK. Â*it's a great truck, but even though I love it, there are too many quirks to get it to perform good. Â*
I spent 229 3 day select shipped on the redcat. Â*I'll need new tires/wheels, and now a new body, some better shocks, rework the gearing to make up for the smaller tires.....My buddy sold me his ultimate for 285, with a Turnigy 5.0 2s lipo, extra gears/pinions, a basher body, and the truck had been driven thru just 4 lipos. Â*Plus, it had a spektrum sr300 receiver in it, and some extra upgrades he put on it.
Hindsight's 20/20, if I had known, I could have just waited and bought his extra slash. Â*
As much as I love the redcat, even lovign it with all it's quirks, it's gotta go.
