Unfortunately I don't have any studio shots of with it at full steering lock. However I think I found an action shot with it at full lock.

They just plain SUCK even for slow scalers, imagine how great they will be on a much faster car...
For you haters, look at how Traxxas has done this on their cars. At least it _looks_ far superior compared to this, and I do know the Slash takes some major impacts without problems.

I'm not too impressed really, but we'll see when you guys start beating on them.. :-)
I'm sure VP has already got those weak parts in the hopper, seems to be the way these things work.

Might have been brought up already, it's a big thread, but this pic shows an open front diff yes? One wheel pancake from different rotational speeds?

Default Twin Scammer?

B,

Looks pretty sweet. What was the target niche for this new rig and key characteristics that define it vs the Twin Hammers?...ie buyers guide on how to decide which one to buy.

Cheers,

J

Alright enough messing around. I think this is the best image I have with the steering possibly at full lock.

Not only did Brandon design this rig, he shot these photos while I was having fun driving all day! Thanks B!

Looks factory ready to accept a dual rear shock setup as well.

And that steering throw looks far better than any Exo I've seen.

Bugger.... Not quite big enough for my wallpaper...
