Thread: Traxxas 7th Scale Trophy Truck

    Not tooo bad, that thing looks pretty boss. But if I were to have my druthers...

    * They'd stop doing that stupid 'short sidewall on the inside' thing that 1/10 SC trucks do. I don't know why but it irritates me to no end there, it does here, and hell half of the way the real thing handles is due to the huge sidewalls folding over.

    * Electric is nice. But I want one with an engine. Glow or gas, either's fine, and 1/7 is in that grey area where it could be built light enough for a 0.32cid glow powerplant to be more than enough, or a smaller 15cc gasoline one to make it rip. It not being as fast as the BL version is fine with me, I still want the engine.

    * I bet itt'l have their stupid app nonsense going on where the thing's gimped unless it's hooked to your phone and unlocked. Hate that. With how much these things cost I'd expect 100% of the performance to be available from the word go without any app nonsense.


    Pretty nice truck, and it's probably the first TRX truck I've halfway seriously wanted to own since they announced the Slayer(Which was the first one full-stop), but...eeeh.

    I dig it. Spoke to LHS and they said they'll have 7 or so in March. Think I'm gonna get one.

    I have a DBXL with a big motor and all sorts of add ons, and while it's cool, it's too loud and cumbersome to play with around my house. Think I'm gonna sell my DBXL and parlay the money into the orange Fox truck.

    DBXL sold and picked up my Fox Shocks UDR on Monday. It's really cool.

    I have it slightly apart painting a few pieces.

    I'll get some pictures up this weekend.

    Wow, great! I'm still waiting for mine to arrive at the shop. Then it becomes the Scale Basher's Guild.

    Have to admit I am really looking forward to running this truck. I love my scale rigs, but this looks to be a ton of fun. The guys at the local hobby shop said they've had a blast with their demo rig.

    Ordered an extra pair of 3S batteries last night so I can venture out to some good off road spots with plenty of extra juice.



    Here's a few cell phone pictures. Painted the calipers orange, and removed the oil cases, fire extinguishers, shock reservoirs, and rear jack so I could paint them. They should be done tonight or soon enough. Awesomely, Traxxas sells the spare parts for DIRT cheap. Got extras of all these pieces from their website for like $40. Got new drivers helmets, all the pieces I painted, and other stuff so I could detail them at some point. Very cool on their part to sell them at fair prices. I mean, the truck wasn't cheap, so that was cool of them I thought.

    Nice. It's an excellently detailed truck for it's speed and intended audience. Traxxas is starting to figure out the direction the market is headed. I was really impressed.
