Default Who's Owning Who?

The question is, who is kicking butt and who is getting their butt kicked with their Redcat cars and trucks. I'm interested to see how they stack up against the competition. We all know these trucks have some serious power once you get the bugs worked out of them. So what have you been stacking them up agaisnt and hows it turning out? I'll give a full report once i get mine working at the same time as my friends Team Losi Aftershock. Theres a guy with a T-maxx 3.3 down the street to. We have been dieing to get them side by side but mine kinda keeps breaking But i have confidence! The Losi is running a .26 and i got a .28, he has 2 foward gears and i have 1. Man i can't wait. So lets hear some stories!

the redcat volcano would keep up or slightly beat my hpi nitro mt with the stock .15te in it but now i have an os .18 in the mt and its really sick, the volcano can hold it own against the savage, tmaxx and revo until they hit second gear and thats usually the end.

as far as the redcat huricanes go, they will hold there own against most other buggies. They take the ofna ultra's on my track but the cen matrix buggies give it a run for the money. I also think it has alot to do with the driver.

Round 1 - Losi Aftershock Vs. Redcat Avalanche

So we finnaly got them running together! Been waiting for this since i got the thing and it was a blast. The two foward gears in the Losi was no match for the Avalanche! We lined them up and the Redcat had the clear advantage. The Losi is mean dont get me wrong, but the SH .28 is just a beast. I had him off the line and continued to pull all the way down the bock, the Losi just couldnt keep up. My prediction was that i would have him off the line but when he shifted to 2nd he would pull away but this wasnt the case. Unfortunately we think his clutch is messed up now but we still got about 4 or 5 solid runs in. Hopefully his repairs wont get to expensive!

Round 2 in a week or so!

Once the .28 sh goes, get the 6 port sh or even the sh pro. Big difference.. I will have them on site shortly.

That do be a fact Clermont, I'd put the Pro against any of the .28 + engines out there and it would ba a run for the money
