Thunder Tiger ST-1. anybody know anything?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
howdy all - i'm looking at buying a used thunder tiger st-1, pretty sure its the pro-roller version.....anybody know about these? i mean i'm wondering how it will compare to a 8-t or RC8? i guessing its not quit as fast on the track but what about durability and parts support? also, whats the difference between the RTR and the pro-roller? i would be racing it if i got it........and what is a decent pro version without tx/rx worth do we think, i'm thinking $230 is a good value.......any help or insight from a previous owner/racer of one would be great. thanks all, dgsmooth

re thunder tiger st1

i have raced a thunder tiger st1 pro for close to two full seasons and imo its a great truggy.

its a very strong ,durable truggy and is pretty competitive against the other brands of truggies right out of the box.

there are a few differences between the rtr and the pro version of the st1.
the pro version come with carbon fibre shock towers and radio tray. it has the heavy duty cvd axles as well.

the only drawback about the st1 is that not alot of hobby store carry parts for the st1 because the main distributor for thunder tiger is hobbycraft canada and for some reason most hobby stores dont want to even deal with them.

luckily you dont break many parts racing an st1 so you wont need alot of spare parts. in almost 2 seasons all ive broken on my st1 pro was 1 rear hub, one front shock tower ,and ive blown one front diff and one rear diff. it has a very strong front bumper as well so that helps to protect it. i was able to build up a whole tool box full of spare parts but havent used them.

the new associated truggy has the thunder tiger st1 diffs in it so you know they are solid.

if you can get a pro version for that price its a good deal and id jump on it. the only upgrade i made to my st1 pro was to put the jammin 16mm big bore threaded shocks . i also did the steering knuckle mod to give it more steering. other than that its great right out of the box.
