Not a matter of 'if' but rather, when. The thought of getting a rock crawler has played on the mind for quite some time. For the first time, I've taken a keen interest in trucks ~ crawlers. With the collection of Tamiya trucks, purchases of stadium trucks for my boys to start club racing , I guess it was just inevitable. Taking baby steps forward and there's no turning back from here on out. :)
I have just the place to put these Outlaw bandit loose to go on the rampage. 15 Mins drive to Vasquez rocks (for all you CA, USA or Sci-Fi ~ film buffs) will put one of these bad boys on an awesome platform to strut it's stuff. Shouldn't be too hard since this is more or less 70% pre built. Since Kyosho kit's don't come sealed shut, taking a peep was a no brainer and having held this in the palm of my hands make it overwhelmingly tempting to load this bad boy the necessary stuff to kick some dirt. I am almost there.

Are those spare tires real working spare tires?

Good question Nikko85 and you'd be forgiven to think for display only but yes, they do look, weigh & feel real enough to be useable spare tires.

MAD-BEE, Cheers m8.

871c2 I may have to strip down the gearbox and change out the stock spur gear, that's if I decide to run a BL system, also have to fill some gaps in between gearbox casing so it doesn't let in any dirt. Something similar I did to the boy's RedCat Volcano. Dirt got into the box and stripped out standard gears ~ I then swapped it out with a metal spur and covered all the gaps & crevasses (glue + foam), so far so good. Think I'll have to do the same here minus steel spur but I will run in either an AE or TLR spur instead. I'll do an update when possible.
