At my favorite shop the blue rtr is already sold out and new stock will be in the end of may, maybe beginning of june.
Thats not good to hear. At least now i can save some money and think over what to put in the blue roller. 😉
 
True but i think here in Europe, it would be fine. No rush. Still thinking of what to put in.
If you're wanting it that bad you're always better safe than sorry, it can sit on your shelf while you decide what to put in it, I just tossed the corally digitals in mine with a 15t pinion, runs about 55-60mph (haven't put gps on yet)ran a whole 6s pack through it running it hard and only hit 140°f on the motor. It handles very well for a buggy. I pretty much bought the last 22 xtr in the states before they disappeared and I'm glad I did, that would have been a long 6 month wait!

Nice, glad to hear it's running well. I don't have the funds for one unfortunately. Maybe that's a good thing, in case theres any revisions to be made? At least that's what I'm telling myself, LOL.

I hear ya, not sure we'll see any revisions anytime soon though, it's a pretty well thought out and well made machine, they definitely stepped it up with this one. Granted I'd love to see them ditch that hard plastic wing but we've dealt with that since the dawn of corally making bashers so I don't foresee that changing anytime soon, time will tell though, maybe there's a weak link somewhere, as of now I don't even see the point of the 7075 offerings they have for it short of maybe the shock towers

Yes, the wing material is all wrong on the TC's. I replaced my xtr wing with one I've had kicking around for years. If I had to guess, I think it might be Proline not sure. Waay more flexible than the TC wing tho.
Maybe by the time the rollers restock I can pull it off🤞

Any thoughts on the RC Machete 1/6? Interesting size, think it's Mojave sized chassis. About 2.5" longer than a kronos but same width..
Could be a speed runner? A Redcat speedrunner!?🤣🤣

New street car? Like a arrma infraction? I am up for it for sure.
Oh, maybe? I don't do road cars.. no place to run them. I mean sure there's plenty of roads, I just can't be bothered packing it out to run them. I imagine they get boring rather quickly? Kinda like rc boats. Really cool, but what to do with them?

Good point. I have a big parking lot close by but not made from tarmac but bricks. Not ideal either

I think it really depends on how much fun street bashing is for you. Personally I love going fast so something as simple as me just flying up and down the street is extremely entertaining in short bursts. I also love trying to drift/powerslide.


Maybe I'm just very simple but we even have fun going to the parking lot at night on the weekend and just messing around like this.

or this


I can totally understand how someone could find that boring though. Even I get bored if I do it for too long. I could do jumps with my bashers all day :ROFLMAO:

Interesting servo for the Asuga. Anyone run this plus version? Any thoughts?
I run this one in my xtr and I love it

The ones for the arms are more for racing to take away flex ..But i run them on all my TC rigs and haven't broke anything.. in fact i bent the rear center shaft doing backs flips all day with my jambo om the first run. .Not a bad bend but enough to notice it..I added the carbon fiber chassis inserts and the shaft hasn't bent any further after a bunch of packs ..If your snapping arms then you gtta learn how to land Wally! Lol Jk 😆

Took the asuga out today for the first real bash and I bent the shock towers and broke the wing mount. Think I'm not taking it back to the bmx spot again lol. Maybe I'll use it on the ramp but that's about it. I guess I should just pay for the upgraded shock towers because the stock ones suck. If I'm being honest, I've never had to replace a shock tower on any of my other rigs before.

It was fun to drive though! :eek:

Yeah i heard that the shock tower bends pretty easy. Think even a 7075 shock tower would bend if you crash hard. I think the reason the shock tower bends is because it is a bit higher or the same height as the frame housing roof. Put the Asuga on its back and see if that is the case. So the roof and the bracing underneath not breaking the fall but the shock tower. That is not a good thing i think.

Isn't that how it is on a typhon? I always considered it a plus since it protects the body 🤣
