Question

Does anyone have any experience or know anything about the Billet Machined 1/10 Trail Roller 4WD Off-Road Scale Crawler ARTR. I'm considering getting one becaue i have an SCX-10 already but it is BEAT (may partially be my fault). The frame has been bent front and rear form fairly high fall (10ft. Give or take a few.) But Does any one know if the Billet Machined 1/10 Trail Roller 4WD Off-Road Scale Crawler ARTR is stronger than an SCX-10 and by how much. (Kinedove an abusive and harsh driver. I would make a great durability tester just look at my scx10 (bent frame twice killed electronics a few times (2 ESC's, 2 Servos, no motors some how.))) Need advise on a STRONG SCX-10 Setup for under 1K.

Looking at one of these.
Here's my scx-10.
Yeah one isn't suppose to be vertical both should have an angle to them.



Upgrade before you break it.

Unless I am mistaken... That is a picture of the crawler Integy/TopCad it's selling. (Junk)

I would recommend an Axial instead.

Just my $ .02

I don't have personal ownership experience, but I have seen one. It is a heavy pig.

The receiver box top is different from the one that I have seen though.

The only thing that bugs me, although having a complete aluminum SCX10 will be cool, is that in the past when I've hopped up a car, I've noticed that some parts need to be plastic. Because of movement, plastic flexes and aluminum doesn't. But for cool factor 10/10...

These are sold on Integy's website: Trail Roller 4WD 1/10 RC Off-Road Scale Crawler ARTR for R/C or RC - Team Integy
There are multiple versions of it in various colors and wheelbase (Dingo, Honcho, Or 4DR JK).

Ya I have an scx10 you see how bad i mangled the frame (and DEMOLISHED the Trans.) I need something STRONG that looks to be pretty BEEFY. So it should withstand more abuse than the standard SCX-10 right?

You mean you physically drove an SCX-10 over a full size car?

See the last pic. I posted. That was my SCX-10 before it went to hell and back to here. (Then went back to hell (for fun) and back to here again.)

I believe that these trucks are built out of 6061 Alloy/Aluminium.

Have a vendor fab up a chassis for you like Mattzilla's trail chassis, for me it's more bling and would last longer than those integy aluminums.

So you put all of the integy parts on your truck so is it REALLY STRONG or no?

Wait, wait... $600 for a stock "built" roller? Screw that!!

Mattzilla has chassis' available for $299/$399 and will be twice as nice as that Integy/TopCad junk. Get it done right the first time.

If your bending chassis rails, you need to look into steel, not AL. Buying integy AL parts isn't gonna make it survive what bent our last AL Chassis to hell. IMHO all that's your doing there is increasing the $$ you need stocked up for replacements.

Buy it, Drive it, Flex it, Break it, Fix it, Drive it, Flex it, Break it, Cont.

Not sure how you're managing to bend the frame - mine has tumbled 20 to 40 ft a few times now down rocks and the most damage is stripped servo gears. Plenty of people here beat the snot out of theirs w/o that kind of damage. Which begs 3 questions: 1) what is powering your SCX10? and 2) could the damage be due to incorrect assembly? and finally 3) might you need to adjust your driving style?

Has a 13.5T Novak with a SV3 ESC venom 3000mah and weighs about 10lbs. It might be assembled with wrong screws. And I am nicknamed bulldozer at the hobby shop because I move the course a lot with this truck and I am VERRY abusive when driving. Although I do put on a good show but I have slowed down a bit.

I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again, Integy/topcad parts are NOT an upgrade.
