    That looks pretty good as is. 

    The body isn't the best looking, but not many lcg rigs do. 

    Good motor choice.

    seen a few YT video`s and this looks a winner on spec and performance but same old thing, we dont have a Redcat dealer here in UK and shipping plus import from Redcat makes this less tempting

    From what i have seen this will run rings round a TRX4 but then there is the long term reliability,  even this Traxxas hater would be first to admit the TRX4 seems to be ultra reliable, i imagine there will be a YT video soon with this rig up against a TRX

    got a feeling it might be first RTR brushless crawler in mass production, does look a real capable rig

    Didnt that come with higher than a 40a ESC? Could be wrong?

     

    I agree, it looks incredibly capable!!

    40amp should be plenty for a crawler, i would be surprised if that motor pulled more than 20 amps

    this is a specific low cg build designed for hardcore crawling, the trx is more of a trail truck, built to withstand what kids would do to it, a pro low cg setup like this in the hands of kids will be destroyed pretty quick.
    anyway looks like a decent bit of kit that competes with the likes of the custom lowcg element chassis, trx4 isnt the market for this cars competition, element and vanquish are imo.

    That's why I've never bothered with redcat. Uk spares seem very limited. 

    Plenty of other brands with spares available in the UK.

    Have to ask, why is Modelsport or Wheelspin not a UK dealer

    You mean as in the actual distributor? I dont think that woud work if a shop was also the distibutor. It'd give a bias of what products they push surely?

    Redcat did a black version of their Gen8 Scout II a while back that came with an Hobbywing Axe brushless system.
