well my truck came a day early
Dont have enough video yet, and it may take a few extra days since the storm will be here tomorrow and wednesday.
but I have driven it in my garage. Its far quicker than most brushed 1/16 models I have driven.
I dont know if I mentioned this, but it has a slipper clutch. This is not common for 1/16 or 1/18 4wd models. This is a good thing if you wanted to go brushless, but I think that Redcat did this because the ESC has no delay from reverse to forward. So if you are backing up and peg the throttle it goes straight to drive and you can hear the slipper clutch take up the jolt.
My garage floor is pitted, going from reverse to full throttle I actually got it to wheely a couple of times[:-]
The wheels use a screw to hold them on...but behind the wheel is a standard hex. So it should still be possible to run standard 1/16 wheels that other brands have.
The remote uses 3 "AA" batts. Its light, feels nice and its a tad smaller than the other Redcat 2.4 radios. This is good if you want it for your young kids. Its a good fit for most children....but not so small that it feels weird in my hand.
The friction shocks seem to work well. Oil filled shocks are availible as an upgrade tho.
The motor does get warm. I would reccomend the heat sink as the best/first upgrade!
This thing can do some sick doughnuts. The steering is quick and fairly tight for a 4wd.
At this point, im pretty happy with the truck. I may take it to the hobby shop's indoor SCT track this weekend. I recon I can get it around as quick as most 1/10 SCT trucks.
