Having first seen/known about one of these from a past TC comp it was one of those ' Yeah thats for me that'

It has lived up to and exceeded my exceptions to which is great.This Buggy fills the void nicely of not having a Super Champ/Fighting Buggy in my collection.
A pleasure to build and run. I just hope its a long time before I have to re-lube the diffs though as it will mean virtually taking the whole thing apart to get into them, unless anyone knows otherwise :)
I have fitted a Justock Hobbywing XR10 ESC, mated to a 13.5T 2800kv brushless motor that were picked up on sale in a hobby shop in the USA while on holiday. Plenty quick enough for me!! The colour coded connections make for a simple stress free first time wiring too. I did fit the 17.5T of the same motor first as the ESC doesn't have the fan attached as there is no room for it. But later installing the 13.5T both ESC and motor remain cool to ever so slightly warm to the touch with a lengthy off-road run. Being feed by a Gens Ace 5000mah 50c 2s Hardcase Lipo saw a good hour of run time with still bit left in it when put on to storage charge.

That really looks amazing. Probably the first non-Tamiya I have ever really wanted. Your photos have just cost me +£200!

Ha ha, Thanks, I know what you mean this will probably end up costing me $800 dollars because I feel it needs a Turbo Scorpion or something to keep it company.

Oh hang on more like $900 actually as the Black cage body looks fantastic on the Javelin.
