We don't have many large smooth rocks around here. Most of the local stuff is smaller and sharp. I will try to put a vid up tonight that shows what I am talking about.

I was wondering the same thing. I have a Mamba 25 with seperate BEC. I'm hoping it will work with a dual 380 setup.

for your questions on the electronics I would hit up John Holmes (Holmes Hobbies) he can pretty well answer any electronic question you have. As for the Mamba 25, its good but I dont think it will do 2 motors, thats allot of amp draw for something with no cooling.

A mamba 25 in brushed mode, sidewinder micro (mini?), Mamba micro pro, or FXR would all work just fine in the duratrax.

I got to " handle " one this weekend. I will have to say that DuraTrax has hit the mark with this one. The faux carbon fiber is trick.

I wouldnt trust the tower website for your release info, Tower still has the slash as not shipping yet but mine is sitting behind me. Support your LHS, they will get it before Tower.

Unfortunately, my LHS has almost nothing in stock and the closest hobby shop worth anything is an hour drive.
