      It is, the "buggy" body weighed in at 3.4LBS.

      I just re-geared the truck to compensate.....

      I'm enjoying it quite a bit actually. I have some hop ups coming today, but the first thing was the steering. If you've seen the reviews, it's entirely too flexible. I don't have any true crawling terrain close by so most of what I've done is trail and I'm having a blast with it. I'm running it with a 2s lipo and it's doing great.

      RPP rocks (pun intentional) also RC4WD is great. I like to compare those 2 before buying. I also like to check Google Shopping if I've got a specific part number.

      ive had bad luck with rc4wd. ya they have killer products but their cust service isnt all that great. ive ordered parts from them that were on line only to get an email a week later sayn they were back ordered and i had to fight to get my $ back. where as with rpp i made a mistake and ordered a part that i thought was instock when it was out of stock and i called them late in the afternoon and spoke with corey and he said i will get a full refund on the part that was backordered the next day because all of his people from the accounting dept had left for the day he was very polite and understanding cant say the same for rc4wd or tcs plus one thing i love bout rpp is how dang fast my stuff gets here with the cheep shipping cuz im a cheep sob

      I have had good luck with both, but almost prefer RPP. I know rc4wd is alot of one off stuff, so it takes time to get larger quantities of things. Definately loving Rc4wd dually wheels!! Photos to come soon...

      i think the kit version you had to supply your own motor and electronics i know the rtr version before it got disco came with a 27t and was a tad fast for it. i had a 35t in mine when i had it and i loved it just the right amount of speed and torque

      Yeah the kit comes with no electrics. I'm using a Novak crawler brushless system. I forget what my gearing is to be honest, but it rocks. Super torquey, but it's got decent wheel speed.

      ya the honcho is a good starter scaler but toss a set of 1.9 pit bull rock beasts under her and you will swear the flat irons are slicks

      I'm looking at getting into RC cars with a Rtr kit (in Italy the dingo costs around 350€ and the honcho 450€!), but since the prices are this steep I might have to get a Traxxas slash or another short course car.

      It seems to me that on crawler RC cars, a brushless motor is not as important as on short course car. I won't be doing any racing, but I like the idea of modding and upgrading along with changing bodies. This just seems limited on short course cars...hmmm

      What kind of speeds can crawler vehicles reach?

      most brushless set ups for crawlers are water resistant and they can at the same time offer low end torque and some high end speed depending on how its geared. as far as speed goes ive seen anywhere from a crawl literally all the way up to a fast walk

      cool, I think I'm going to end up getting myself a Traxxas Slash or similar, and get a Losi Micro Trekker (1/24) after to experiment with crawlers...I've seen a lot of cool body modifications done on the Losi rc car
