Default Redcat Camo tt

I wanna Get a scale'ish trophy truck that can still hang with the short course trucks on most surfaces. So far I have 3 options, axial yeti score, Losi Baja ray and redcat Camo tt, if anyone has any other suggestions Id be happy to hear them.

I cant find any reviews on the Camo tt so if anyone has tried one howd you like it? Howd it compare to other rigs? And how durable has it been?

All replies are much appreciated

Title was supposed to be 1/10 trophy trucks but I was gonna just ask about the Camo tt so thats wat the title was about, but then decided to just ask about trophy trucks in general but forgot to change the title

The best handling there is probably the Losi, but if you don't mind something slightly bigger you could get a UDR.

The bind-n-drive Baja Rey is hard to (can't be?) beat at $349.

I want to try a Camo TT, but I haven't committed to buying one yet. The lack of reviews makes me wonder if this vehicle is going to be popular enough to stick around for long. Fortunately, since it's made by HSP, parts from other HSP vehicles should be available even if the Camo disappears. Overall the Camo looks like a good truck for the money.

I have to disagree. I raced a Baja rey in 4x4sct for quite some time in a 2 year span. This was without the avc. There are a few videos of me running it in the class on youtube. Its fun sliding it through the corners and what not and taking whoop sections at WOT.

I felt the UDR is more controllable in the air than the losi. But they feel the same on the ground. I had the pleasure of driving a buddies UDR.

Onto the next point.. The newer Baja reys (1/10 scale) come with an open rear diff. The super Baja rey was the first to come like that from losi though. I bought a super Baja rey last year with my taxes. Only drove it once. I immediately hated it. I couldn't slide it around for nothing. Even with the avc off.

If you don't want to slide around, I'd get a new Baja rey. If you do want to slide around, I would get anything but the new Baja rey as long as it has a locked rear diff, or a spool.

One thing to consider.. any of the rear solid axle trucks will have the "donkey kick". The nose dives down hard after leaving a jump if you are not fully on the throttle the whole way through to the landing.

Also, if you get a Baja rey, replace all the bearings diff related and shim the pinions right away. Otherwise, you will be replacing the gears and bearings after the third pack.

Or just install a spool after you buy it?
