There's only 1 fault with he venture other than the servo (lol) and I find that's it's overall weight, it's so light I find you lose 'feel through the controller. Still by far one of the best scaler trail trucks around.

Yeah my Land Rover Ascender is pretty light at 6Lbs, while my K10 Ascender wieghs about 8 1/2 Lbs. I like the way they drive differently though.

Well the body, motor and bumper turned up today. no news on the SBK yet. The body is great quality. The plastic is around 3mm thick, so hopefully will take a bit of knock ok.

Those body's are nice but heavy, I have one on my SCX and am thinking about swapping it out for this season, Altho the yota is smaller so may not be as bad as the Cherokee. Looking forward to you getting your build rolling once the kit shows..

Thanks. This is the first build I have done with a hard body, so will be something new for me. I might look at getting a lexan body sometime just if I find the weight doesn't help driving.

I really like that hard body

On a side note after long conversations with distributors they no longer have a ETA from HPI which sucks. Their best guess was a week to late March
I hope this isn't the case in late March

Well that sucks. I can wait, but all the UK dealers I spoke to said mid February. They did say they was a high demand, so maybe Hpi are getting more stock sorted.
