Default RE: THUNDERTECH PRO-2

This forum is not to compare the Pro 2 to the slash ,sc10 or the hpi blitz but is to disscuss how this truck handle's compared to a real pro 2 truck. Any way the comparison is like comparing apples to oranges, a solid axle truck to a independant suspension and larger truck, that being said I am still going to see if I can hang with the slash guys in the stock class. But then it may be cool to compare the Pro 2 to these other trucks to see how different the handling characteristics are. I purchased the The Pro-2 because of the scale realsim, you have got to love the solid axle and the independent front suspension, oh and then there is the cool roll cage.

Hello !! I drove the Pro 2 with the Mamba max using the 4600kv motor and a 2400mah batt 7cell. It ran very well off road, very scale. The body is extremely weak I fliped it a couple of times and the body is all cracked up. It really needs a .60 lexan shell . Its a very stable truck when driving it onroad, and it really handles well off road, very scale. it will jump scale jumps well but it takes some practice. I love the solid axle and the roll cage and the driver figure is also awsome.I cant wait to go up against the slash and other trucks to see how I do. But I will not abuse the truck , so that means no big jumps, no doubles, this truck is designed to run like the real corr trucks so I will drive it to scale , that is what the Pro 2 is all about.

Great, looking forward to hearing more. Yeah, I wish there were more rear solid / front independent vehicles out there.

Yeah I like the low mounting batt also , it makes for great low center gravity.

I hear you about the body, i dont like it much myself but I did'nt buy it for the body, I bought it for the scale chassie. So any way I made the body look the best that I could make it look.
