So I bought the most recent Associated SCT and had in mind that I'd make it into a basher similar to how RcSparks did with the Slash. I got my 2.8 Mashers a few days ago an this thing is AMAZING!!! I am having so much fun with this its crazy. I've thrown a 3s into it and when i'm driving I have the biggest, goofiest grin ever. All I can say i that I highly recommend this truck. The speed is pretty good, the body is hold up and while I did break a transmission case it was not the truck's fault. I powered full speed into the side of a concrete jump at the skatepark. Honestly I'm surprised that is the only thing that I lost, I thought for sure it was going to worse. Anyway, thumbs up!
