Default Official Thread for X1 CRT .5 Truggy

I am so exited to get the new CRT .5. It looks awesome. The Pro-kits will be released first and thenthe RTR's. I believe the pricing will be very reasonable. Hope to get some more responses from guys who has one.

Thats what I thought, but they are all really Truggys. It's just one is bigger then the other.

Not really. A truggy is based off a 1/8 buggy. It's like calling a Mini Inferno a real 4wd buggy. It's just a mini-version of the "real" thing. Just like the CRT .5, which is based off the CRT.

good point^^^...

also i have to admit there is not much difference from the crt itself!!.... apart from the engine choice and servs, which if you bought the truggy in the 1st place you would upgrade...

Has anyone gotten one yet? I would like to see a rtr vid and pics up against another truck to compare sizes ect. Please post any pics up against other trucks you can so I can get an idea of the size[8D] How do you think the durability will be? What is the rtr price?

Is it closer to a 1/10 scale or a 1/14 scale?

Alright, Im going for it soon, just need to know if I can use a standard starter box. Also will these recievers fit in the box and radio systems work with it? Which radio would you get?
radio 1- http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-JR-XR2I-RADI...QQcmdZViewItem

radio 2- http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=LXDEL370&P=0

Radio 3- http://cgi.ebay.com/Associated-XP3-3...QQcmdZViewItem

steering servo- http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXDTB3&P=ML

It uses standard size servos right?

I got mine at *********.net they are in tamarac florida. So far its been awesome. This weekend we are going to race them with the 1/10 but in a separet class. I would have raced it last saturday but I burned out a steering servo. I HATE HITECH SERVOS!

Send it to Hitech. They'll replace it for free in most cases

I am looking at getting this truck with in the next two months. What is the difference in the PRO truck? Does it come with many hop up or PRO parts? I am more intrested in it because I have a motor to drop in it and I have a few extra spektrum receivers and such... But just want to make sure I get the best deal.

I think they are all pro trucks right now. Mine didnt come with any hopups. I think the only hopup that is really necessary is stiffer chassis braces.
