20% More Red, 10% More Cat: Shredder SC pics!
 
Hi all,

I just picked up a 1/6th-scale brushless Shredder SC last Sunday, and have put all my notes and pictures up here. It's huge: check it out with my 1/10th Caldera SC 10E!

Thanks to Amazing RC Store for running the event that helped fund the Shredder, and for getting everything ready for me to pick up on a Sunday!

man thats a fat cat! The caldera is by no means a small truck, but it looks like it is sitting on top of the shredder.


Check the diffs and shim if needed. And tape the underside of the body with duct tape or gorilla tape, thatll help it last longer.

Id upgrade the servo to a MG996R, cause its metal geared/has plenty of torque and its cheap!

That thing is a monster. I've debated getting a rampage for awhile now. Only thing is I want gas and am not really impressed with the acceleration. I know it can be modded, but with the start up cost it would be awhile before I could start making it go fast so I'm gonna stick with 1/8 scale. Have it narrowed down to two models, hopefully I'll make my decision this week and get it ordered.

Redcat is now selling the shredder's without the lipos. Alot cheaper. Nows the time to buy one if you want one!

(Also on URC) I painted up an XT body for my SC, and also added some Losi LST tires. Still needs some trimming but it's close. Front:

And for scale here it is beside my Losi 22 1/0th buggy. If I took the wing off the 22 I could almost drive it under the Shredder!

Here's a couple more photos about how I painted it.

Finally fixed the steering too: used the upgraded crossbar:
