In this video I show you all the electronics I plan to use. The esc and lights were purchased from RCmart and the servos from Hobbyking.

That's the re-re version of the Bruiser, right?

I've always been attracted to them. I might save up and get one.

Aside from the scale aspect, does it have any advantages compared to something like a Summit?

I'll come back and watch the videos later.

JeremyZ - No advantage over Summit in terms of overall usefulness or ability. The Summit will go just about anywhere. These trucks and the Bruiser are Scale trucks with very little in the way of suspension flex or movement. You can spent a little money and buy a 4-link rear suspension system of them that will allow the rear axle to flex but overall I would say there is no comparison.

We should get together at some point again. I'll bring out the Bruiser and you can run it around.
