Smaller than a Savage, but it is a 1/10 MT.


The TXT-1 is a born climber, it is not built for Speed. It will outclimb anything due to its axle setup and the amount of suspension travel, etc.


Electric is ideal for this Rock Climbing because of the direct drive (no clutches) and the immediate availability of torque. Unusual thing to watch in action, but a get truck for the purpose.

you could alwas get a rc10gt they are a tough little car and are great for bashing, it is nitro and nitro is better for offroad.

well i can argue about nitro being best on offroad..but we all have out own opinion,

but due to vert tight budget now, i can only afford to run the one car, (got the adsl bill coming soon, and college starts soon)

Nismo,


I have a savage, and still think that the TXT-1 is awesome. It will rock crawl in places the savage won't go - there is no question of the fact. In dirt track racing, it would be down right slow compared to the savage though... it's horses for courses.


Definately not a "cheap" truck though.

Not to be a picky pratt Nismo Speed but the truck in that picture is actually a Clod Buster based crawler.


Not to say a TXT can't get that much articulation but a Clod is a better base for a rock crawler,as it has a better centre of gravity and it has its motors on its diffs which stops the torque twisting effects that plague the TXT.


I drive a Clod based Crawler and a Juggernaut based crawler.I also run a modded E Maxx
