Is there a source for replacement parts? I really want the cage/body!

Quick update, I ended up getting a second one of these which came with Tamiya plugs and a different radio with similar electronics and functionality to the normal redcat flysky GT2 ones but with a different shape and only 4x AA's.

Cheers,
Crouch

Hey Klampy,

Can't comment on the toughness yet as I haven't driven it enough but i'm hopeful!

Some of the electronics are advertised as waterproof but personally i'd take it with a grain of salt. They may well be but i'd suspect other parts of the car may rust...
I'd treat them as splash proof personally but not much more.

Cheers

Cool, that's fair enough too. As things break I'm sure I can fabracobble on my axial spares n such.

Keen to see his reaction. It's the 20th this month.

Here is how the original truck has progressed. Not much left other than the trans, skid, and chassis plates. 😁

Hey,

Quick update on the two i'm running with a couple of things to look out for.

I handed them over to my kids and their cousins (aged between 5 and 10) (just on 7.2v NiMH) and let them run amok in an empty dam.
Pretty quickly the steering went on both.
The stock set-up has no servo saver and both of the plastic servo horns stripped, plus both servo's now have problems centering now.
Additionally the servo has a metal head on it and normal screw thread (not tapped) and both screws holding the servo's horns backed themselves out.
A little disappointing given they're supposed to be rock racers but I guess not surprising considering the price point.
So I strongly recommend adding a servo saver immediately to avoid this problem and extend the servo life, plus thread-locking the servo screws in place.

Secondly the plastic rear locker/spool in one gave way (as expected) but thankfully I had one of the HSP Everest 10 metal ones to swap in. Recommend ordering one or two of these to keep on hand.

Apart from those two minor / expected problems i'm pretty happy with them as crawler / rock racers for the kids to use.

Cheers,
Crouch
