    You gotta have the right tools for the right job. Literally and figuratively. Adjust your budget, or adjust your aim.

    Yeah, for a short course truck, especially 4wd, you want a 550. Motor will run so much cooler than a 540 that is being pushed to its limit.

    I understand your confusion. Like, a Duratrax Evader is a 1/10-scale stadium truck. Compare it to a 1/10 scale Short Course Truck. The SCT is A LOT bigger! Almost, if not as big as, a 1/8-scale...
