Post Your RC

I know alot of us have RC trucks, post up your rig. I started out with a Traxxas Stampede that had been modified, and I ended up selling it. I plan on getting another in the next few months. I want something that's 4wd. I'm considering a Losi or an Axial AX10 rig.

Are you looking for an RTR or unassembled, do you want a crawler, mudder, street, electric or nitro?

Either RTR or a Kit. I'd like to get everything in one stop. I'm looking into electric crawlers, and maybe some light mudding.

I was looking into the axial ax-10 looks to get good reviews and i found it for like 200$ which i thought was low. i was just wondering how long the batteries usually last at a time? also whats the top speed for the crawlers would it be ok with it running around int he snow in the yard or are they geared very low?

ooo a summit, those look fun!

I started with a stampede, which got rebuilt many times, currently its a lipo powered brushless MM5700, with FLM wide front arms, rustler chassis, swami bar, and many other upgrades, the only orginal parts are the shock towers.

I then got a duratrax warhead, worst purchase I have made ever!

Then a wheely king, which now has the crawlerking conversion, beadlocks, 55t, uses the same ESC as the pede/rustler.

And most recently a used jato I picked up off craigslist, with tons of alumnium upgrades.







(I hope the images post, they are hosted a RCU)
