Tamiya Truck in general.....Shall I change?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey guys.... I just wonder what do you think 'bout tamiya trucks....

As you know from my sig, I uses NDF01 - Nitro Crusher but heard it
will be hard to upgrade it beside 2-speed transmission.....or
bigger engine... (But since the space on the chassis is so small..
don't think I have much choice of engines...)

it also breaks so easily... I already spent some dough to fix every little
click-clicks (don't even have metal parts!! even drive shaft is made
of plastic~!!!! Can you imagine??)

so I need your opinions..... Shall I keep my truck until I get used to GPs,
or it is better just to trade it for something else?

May be it's too early for a guy who started RC, 2~3 weeks, ago.....for
a change .... but I believe experts in this forum can give me a word
or two... rite?

Nitro Crusher... everything stock.....
newbie of the newbies..

Chassis - NDF-01
Engine - OS/Tamiya FS15S
Gear - Single speed stock

Please make some metal parts! TAMIYA!!!

->That's right~!

i dont know much about your nitro crusher but when it comes to 2wd stadium trucks, there are 2 that wins everything its the RC10GT and the XXX-NT both good strong trucks if u are going to race they are the best,if u want to hack around and go subsonic then i would say JATO or Schumacher XTR.

and believe it or not its not NITRO they run on it MONEY lol

check out my Jato...part source is endless!! I find that a lot of Hobby stores don't carry many parts for Tamiya trucks. If you want to upgrade your truck and never have to worry about locating parts, then go with a savage or a losi lst or even maxx series trucks.
