    my oppinion is a con,it is to small and too slow for my taste. 1:10 scale is the best.1:8 scale is cool too but anything bigger than that like 1/4 scale,you mind as well get into gokart racing.smaller than 1:10 scale? thats as cheasey as the `stock class` of 1:10 scale racing.but thats just me.and probably tons of people.

    stock class racing is cool were it is all about the car and the driver but the motors are slow.why go slow?

    they say that with the stock motor and a 7.2 bat. pack it will do about 15 mph.we have 5 of them and built a track for the winter time while the real trucks are sleeping.and for such little things they rock .an awsome way to pass the snowy months there cheep to fix if they break and hop-ups are cheep too.hop ups are a little hard to get right now due to high demand but give it a month or so.they would be cooler if they were nitro but the fun factor is high enough and thats what counts (right?).

    they dont have oil filled shocks and they bounce alot on small bumps and jumps

    derek, dude hows it going, im loving my rs4 3 by the way. so u guys r saying if u put oil filled shocks on it and a new motor(maybe) this thing will be good....? im still really looking into getting one. again, not for an everyday kinda or truck just one that i can take out when i get mad at my others and in the snow.

    those trucks would be cool with the upgrade of suspension and motor.they may eventualy have orginized racing in thier class.
    i would recomend getting two of them,upgrade them and build a small dirt track to race each of them with someone.
    the track wouldnt have to be very big for them small trucks.

    hey how are you yea thats cool i just bought an os cvx-12racing engien and it doesn't fit in the car.:( Maybe if i get the graphite upper deck but im selling it right now, i got a mini-t with my own money just a word of advise if you do get one(and you should) make sure to pick up or get you hobby shop to order you a few front shock towers mine broke when i hit a pole so you know it is a good idea other than that they kick ass

    dirtovallMaster-i have heard from a couple poeple that their track is getting another track just for the Mini-T's. I hope mine does!
    Savage-u should get a pretty penny out of that car! thanks for the heads up on the front shock towers.

    i was also checking around a couple sites and saw the micro monster horsepower motor. do u have to get a new esc for the new motor or not. also is a good motor for more speed? and last, wat other kind of hop-ups do you all recamend for more speed? thanks a bunch guys!
