Default My new short course truck.

Got my Redcat Vortex today. First impression is that it's a pretty good deal for $187 shipped. 4wd, brushless, rtr, even includes a 2000mah nickel pack. Battery is charging now so I decided to start messing with it. Swapped the ugly tires/rims for some 1.9 black TC dish rims and tamiya 3.5" rockhard BFG MT's. These tires will have no traction I'm sure. I also lowered the body 1 notch in front and 2 notches in the rear, still looks too high. Here's some pics, opted for the red just to be different.

Glad you mentioned that. I was planning on running it double duty in my stampede.

Looks cool!

Always nice to see something other than a slash...

But I will say, that thing needs wheels & tires BAD!

I kind of like seeing people try something different and go with a under-dog manufacturer. Not a bad price for a brushless basher i guess. What kind of run times do you see with the stock battery? How about speed?

I've seen on utube that is supposedly runs 30mph stock, but I have no way to verify that. Fast enough for me I think fits. Runtime I don't know, I didn't run the pack down because my limited test area got boring quick.
