Default Thunder Tiger Jackal 1/10th 4wd Desert Buggy

Just got mine in yesterday. Looks pretty good out of the box:

Here's the great flip top lid - what a great improvement over the big competition

Here's my unboxing video of the rig and a compare to my Axial Yeti 2.0

Curious on how well it does off-roading. It certainly has nice scale appeal.

Bringing the pain since 1968

I have been looking forward to some commentary and shared experiences of this rig. It certainly looks cool.

Please share all!

I like how it looks. Especially with just the cage and no panels. I have seen a few of these types floating around the web with $150 price tags. I'm interested in finding out more and how it does compared to the yeti and twin hammers.

Where did you pick yours up? And what did you pay, IYDMA? I was really psyched to see this on Bigsquid ages ago, but then TT switched suppliers to one that only deals with LHS. Which is great and all, but I have never seen any TT products in my LHS because well, they already stock axial and rc$wd because that's what their customers already have. IIRC the MSRP was in the 699 range, kinda high for a company that doesn't have a strong presence in the USA anymore.

I kinda like it. The paint job is the only thing I don't care for. I looked for a kit version and didn't see one. Are they going to make a kit? I'll wait to see how people like this car and see if the aftermarket picks it up.

I just posted the running video today. Turned out pretty decent. The main issue the rig has are the tires. Switch them out for some sticky pin type and no more traction issues. I also shot a crawling video which will be up tomorrow

Here's the second video in the series attempting some crawling.......but the stock tires just wouldn't cooperate!

Sorry for the late response - no kit version as Thunder Tiger is pretty much like Traxxas - RTR's only.

Got mine from Vortex Hobbies. $369 is the mSRP on it.

Is anybody buying these?

Looks like a fun platform. Also looks to share a ton of parts with the Team Associated ProSC4x4 in the front end.
