Here's a quick little video to prove this thing actually runs...

With 10 trail miles under its belt now, I thought I'd write down a few thought about the li'l Bronco. I'm already addicted to this thing.

Alan Man has a pretty sweet ride.

I haven't pushed it too hard yet. Very scale driving for the most part. It is a little top heavy. That, along with the narrow track, can make side-hilling a bit of an adventure. Nothing major and certainly not a big deal for most of the trailing I do. The CMS has worked well. I haven't noticed any bump steer. The short wheelbase can make it a tad squirrel-y on long, straight sections. The benefit is that it is extremely nimble and maneuverable. It's diminutive size can cause it to pop its nose up and tumble back over itself if you're not paying attention and hit a taller-than-expected tree root head on at full throttle. Theoretically, of course.

The little RC4WD Goodyear tires are the bees knees. They hook up great. The stock foams even work well with a light rig like this. The HobbyWing 1080 ESC, Holmes Hobbies Trailmaster and cheap-o servo are getting the job done. I did order a bigger pinion to get a tad more wheel speed. Hopefully I'll get that installed soon.

I run weighted wheels...with the motor so high up, some weight down low makes all the difference in the world as far as stability.

Really like those tiny tires...might have to look into a set.

Do it! The tires are fantastic.

I understand how it can help, but I've never been a weighted wheel kind of guy. They make Beef Tubes for these now, right? Maybe I'll look into those at some point. In reality, the performance has been plenty good enough for the type of trail driving I'm most likely to do with it.

Here's another quick video. My Little Little Guy wanted to help me with my fledgling YouTube channel. We took turns driving and filming.

Inspires me to put my Cruiser body aside and get a Bronco body. Love the wheels and tire combo too.
