Default RCCA RTR Truggy Showdown results

Does anybody know or have a link to the Rc Car Action rtr truggy showdown results? I noticed tha kyosho is advertising that they had the fastest lap times in that review. How did the other rtr's do?

It also looks to be of the worst quality. Thank god Traxxas didnt have a truggy; RCCA would've made the lap times the fastest.

Another traxxas hater. How many of you are there? I know RCCA shows a little bias to bigger advertisers but damn. I justt want to know how the Mammoth St did.

I heard that the Mammoth ST didn't do so hot in this competition, but as you guys said, RCAA is kinda biased. Anyway, it doesn't really matter to me, I love my Mammoth ST (just got a Hitec 5955TG and waitin on RC Visions Hinge Pin Retainers) and I think that we can run with the top truggies.

man, i have YET to even remotely see a mammoth ST keep within a lap of any of the top truggies on the market,.

3 guys at our track race with them things, to me it looks like a waste of time to even try to race with the mammoth st. it looks like a fun basher, but to race out here? no, them STR's, LSP's, ST1's, CRT's will have a field day running against that thing.

the BEST RTR truggy on the market will be the thunder tiger ST1, then the CRT, then the LSP.

kits is another story lol

But what about R9 coming in 3rd place with the Mammoth ST? I wouldn't be saying what I'm saying if I didn't know, R9 has the ST running up with the other truggies. www.racernine.com

Thats all you man!!! if you want to spend 400- 500 dollars on a XTM mammoth and think you will win against other drivers driving a STR, CRT, ST1, and even a LSP..thats all you! not me LMAO.

by the way, if the mammoth is such a best kept secret, then why isnt mark p, Cavilieri, Drake, James, Maifield driving XTM mammoth or the X-Terminator 2? dont you think if the kit was worthy enough they would jump on the ball and get with the program??

i have had my fair share of racing mammoths in my area, and i even drove one, its a tank bone stock, i would rather race the LST over the mammoth. JMHO.

You said it man. I have only seen 2. Both of them would not stay together, and just looked goofy. I would pit my Mayhem ST up against one of those anyday. But then again...LSP's and CRT owners I am sure will say the same to me.

I had a CRT Pro Kit with a Picco .27 and I loved it. EXCELLENT TRUCK and competition worthy. Just not as much fun as my Mayhem ST to drive.

Traxxas rocks, I have a electric brushless revo that I love.

That sounds like real car comparisions when you talk about rcaa magazine. If it says traxxas it will outrun/ outlast everything.

Car & Driver- If a toyota or honda automobile is in a comparision with any other brand of car, the other brands may as well not compete, it will be honda or toyota everytime.

I have the magazine.
Top dawg was a tie between Jammins and ST-S. Jammin pretty much won all out.
Fastest was the Mammoth.
Slowest is the Hellfire.

Nothing broke on the Kyosho and Jammin scoring them hi.

Jammin wins. Or you can buy a Kyosho and be equally pretty happy.
