Default If somones wanting a TLT, this is the time to get it!

I was just browsing around and saw ultimate hobbies has now lowered the price of the TLT-1's down to $80 (the one with the truck body, the one with the SUV body is still $140).

I had been wanting one for a long time but was relectunt to buy one due to the price (they were close to $200 when I was looking at them a while back), so needless to say I jumped on the deal and ordered me one

I depleted my crawler fund to near nothing, but its no big deal cause Ive got most of the parts for it already, I only need a few minor things (rod ends, screws, a body, body mounts, etc., nothing big).

Yeah I got the whole kit, also it was 80, not 200.

Its a 1/18th scale monster truck, its not a full size one (1/10 / 1/8). Thats why its so cheap.

Mine hasnt came in yet, so I cant say anything about the handling. But I know it wont handle as good as say a clod based crawler will due to the high COG.

As for size, the one guy on here stretched his out to like 12-13"s (wheelbase I think, not overall length) which puts it right around 1/10 scale.

Stock the overall length is 11"s, so the wheelbase would be more like 8"s. My big crawler has about a 16" wheelbase and must be around 22"s long.

Yea I used to always think that, back when I had my clod crawler I always thought the TXT-1's had a dis-advantage with the motors and drivetrain mounted so high. I really really want to start a new crawler project and the TLT-1 seems the cheapest way to right now.

My TLT shipped out today

Coming UPS so it should be here around the 14th or so.

Problem is, I think were going out of town most of next week so I probobly wont get to do anything with it till the week afterwards.

Unless I can get it built and setup overnight, then I could take it with me. I built my B4 in like 3-4 hours so it shouldnt be too hard getting the tlt built in one night.
