im a associated guy. raced a couple RC10Ts back in their day.

im glad to see them join the game. a little bumed at the size, but at this day and age it was probly smart to set themselves apart from all the other 1/10s in the game now.
plus makes for a great price point for the dad and son walking into a hobby shop randomly one weekend.

yes, and no. the new scx10.2 deadbolt would probably beat the CR12 in the durability department hands down. and honestly, looking at the pictures, id rather buy a ecx barrage.

the quality don't look all that great. doesn't look like you could do much with it, besides the rails and the shocks.

though.. I do wonder.. would the ascender axle gears fit in that housing?

So they copied a blackfoot body and put it on a thunder tiger chassis... color me unimpressed.

Well, at least its another ford joining the party? Yay?
Haha i just looked again and the wheels look comical on the small 1/12 body. Like 20s lol it worked on thunder tigers toyota body, better proportions.
1.55 would have been better but still overall this is meh.

they didn't copy the blackfoot body, they got a license to be able to use that body style.

I think those wheels are 1.55. I thought I read under the specs on AE's website.

the only thing I could add from this rig in parts to my random collection, the body, rails, and the wheels/ tires.

it would be interesting to see somebody swap in a different trans and axle setup under this rig. the drive shafts.. make me cringe
