    RE: Volcano SV review?

    yeah, i would say the rustler and volcano have the same top speed around 35mph, i know traxxas says like 50mph on the nitro rustler but i own one and i dont see it happening.

    RE: Volcano SV review?

    Well I've seen videos and it seems a lot faster than 35. Is your jato the same?

    RE: Volcano SV review?

    Maybe there is something wrong with your rustler. The jato is similar to the rustler except it's two speed. And they're rated at 5MPH apart?

    RE: Volcano SV review?

    OH. The jato is a 3.3......I thought it was a 2.5. In that case....what speed could I get from an OS .18 CV-RX in a volcano?

    RE: Volcano SV review?

    i have a 2.5r ported and polished in the jato, its crazy fast. as far as the os, it maybe a little faster like 38-40 mph but your acceleration would be much better than stock.

    Yup

    Back to the Volcano and the Monsoon. I read that the exaust pipe on the monsoon touches the fuel tank. Is that how it is out of the box? No big deal.

    RE: Volcano SV review?

    Even though the monsoon is so much better......that price differnece seems so much more......like what could I get in addition to the volcano.......another 100 in parts and hop ups. I think the monsoon might actully be too big for my track. I built it and it's not that wide or big.

    RE: Volcano SV review?

    bro, your really fussing over this, i mean really badly, lol. start with the volcano, its smaller and less intemedating. When you feel you up to a faster, larger nitro, get the avalance or monsoon. I wouldnt really suggest starting off with a 1/8 powerhouse like the monsoon or avalanche for your first nitro.

    I know but I cannot buy many cars. Would the hurricane be any better.

    i am not saying but them all now, start off with the volcano, use it, learn how a nitro works, tuning, and the ins and the outs, then when your ready, jump to the avalanche or monsoon, sell the volcano and put the $ twards the larger one, if you keep it in good shape you can get some decent $ for it.
