Nice! 4.1" 1.9 maybe another option for C1 scalers. These tires look a lot bigger than 4.1". How does the compound of the tire feel Badger?

I don't have any 1.9 pitbulls, just 2.2's. I think the 1.9 pitbulls might have to soft of a sidewall for high speed runs, would need really firm foams which would not be ideal for crawling.

Gives a good idea of size!
No problem. Agreed.

Which is why I'm going to mount the 2.2's, to each his own on how they want to build their rigs.

Even though the tires don't have "Losi" on the side, they are every bit as sticky and soft as my Losi comp claws or any of the other sticky comp tires out. When I took the took the tires off the rims yesterday to let the foams dry, I thought the tires were glued to the rims (even though they are on beadlocks) because I had to pull pretty good to peel the tire beads off the rims.

Bottom line, unless you absolutely hate the look or size of the stock tires, I don't see why anyone would want waste their money on new tires for this rig.

I was going to put 500K fluid in the front diff and tune it more for crawling but I'm wondering if I should leave it stock and take it over to Norcal Hobbies offroad track for some test laps with video first?

Think RECON Terra-X type event, I'm thinking this rig would be perfect for an event like that.

Can you fit a standard 2s lipo hard pack in the back of that, or will I need to get new batteries?

This would change the Terra-X event for the 1.9 class. As long as you lock or put a really heavy fluid in the front diff for the rock section.

It comes with a 2000 Lipo but you can upgrade to a 2s Shorty pack.

Thanks for all the pics and info here gents!

How is the crawling ability compared to something like a Wraith. I understand solid axle is just plain better for rock crawling but can the Twin Hammers at least keep up, somewhat?

I'm really torn between buying this or a Wraith. I want to be able to do a considerable amount of crawling and still trail ride at a decent pace.

Thanks for the reply, but I was looking to see if a regular 2s hard case could be stuffed in between the shock towers. It would be nice to be able to use the boat load of 5000+ mah batts I already have and not have to spend another $100 on batteries that can only be used in this, and none of my other trucks.

He asked what pitch the spur gear was. 48P was my answer to that question.

The only reason it would not be compatable with the pro 4 would be because of the 5mm shaft and the need to find a 5mm bore 48P pinion. Unless someone makes those by now. But the Dynamite 4 pole motors or the Castle ones will be just fine in this.

I'm not a huge fan of scalers but this is sweet. I may have to look in to this. Does it kinda compare to the axial exo terra buggy?

I would like to see it on a track just out of curiosity. I may have missed it but have you weighed it yet?

28 pinion and 78 spur... what's the transmission gear ratios?

One of the new Tekin ROC motors would be awesome in this thing.

Good catch, I forgot to weigh it. I'll take it down to the P.O. tomorrow to see what she weighs.

I've been contemplating raping the ROC 412 out of my SCX10 JK to try in this rig because I like the ROC 412 motor so much. With the 2 speed it should be awesome in low for crawling and then have some kick ass speed high.
