Dont get me wrong the Sheridan can engage targets up to and beyond 50m (~150ft) and can receive hit from even farther away. The issue for “open field” fighting is not the TBU (mushroom) ability to...

Then the M551 will be deadly in your hands👍👍. It has a good balance of small size, speed, quick target acquisition and rate of fire that supports the ambush, shoot/scoot tactics very well.

Do yourself a favor and add the DKLM metal upgrade gears. These make the transmission far more durable and reliable.

Now that S**Ks!!!!! Saddening to hear about this. It’s one thing if you drive the Sheridan hard and have these issues it’s kinda expected, but another when it happens to a lightly used tank.

Get the “circle” for your kids, it receives hits from 360 deg. at all distances. The “cross” only receives hits at 45deg increments once past 20ft similar to that of the Tamiya IR receivers.

Just a heads up. The 6.0 stock IR receiver is not great at receiving hits outdoors (10-15ft) as bright sunlight washes out the IR beam. If you want the kids to really enjoy the tanks you will need to...

It will run them but nowhere near their full potential and you will have heating issues with the 6.0. You will need the 6.1S (higher amp draw rating) to run the 550 motors at full potential.
