Nice! I love the mini. I want one of the mini scale trucks. Love the slashes. I really need to buy a battery strap for mine. I just made one out of plexy glass

For you guys running batteries, how many do you bring to make it worth the effort? I can't imagine too many people have terrain like that in the backyard.

I had 4 5000mah lipo's on a track with short course trucks I would get about 20 minutes with a 12t 550 brushed motor and 30 minutes or so from a vxl brushless. In my losi Mrc I would get an hour or so with its battery. And I get about an hour or so with my scx10 running a vxl motor but after a few years I am down to 2 batteries. IMO I'd going electric go brushless with lipo

If your only crawling (no high speed stuff) u can get 30-50 min out of a 1500-2000mah 2cell lipo. I have two 1320 lipos and a 5300mah 50c/100burst lipo that I use. I can easily get 3 hours out of the 5300 in my slash running a sidewinder SV2 5700kv combo. So they last pretty long if you have a couple good lipos.

You can also get a charger that will hook to a car battery.

It is the Yukon gear bear! It actually a venom creeper or what's left of one. Nothing fancy, Novak roster crawler and 55 turn motor and a little added weight inside the tires

Lol... I'm not saying they are difficult. I'm just saying there isn't much bigger in the valley :P it's either AF/5mile/lilMoab or all the dirt roads. What would u consider the bigger trails

First off... Are you obsessed with the dancing banana? I'd consider st george, most of bfe, and a few trails in Moab the bigger trails. Around here constrictor is the only one that's difficult but only when you include eagles nest.

So the more fun trails that are quickly accessible. Just making sure you driving that Subaru hasn't made you loose your manhood
