Re: Vaterra Twin Hammers for bashing

I tried one out at the local hobby shop and it wasn't too bad, but it isn't my choice for a basher.
It is cool with the 2 speed tranny and the fact that you can crawl with it.
One thing that I wanted to wait for was to see if the aftermarket companies would replicate parts to enhance the model, which I have noticed a lot of parts and options are coming available. The quality was alright from what I could see, but I know the local shop owner did mention some of the suspension parts were breaking and the transmission was a problem it tightened up and wont spin too free, so he replaced it and set it up with a brushless set-up.
Not sure if this will help you with what your looking for info wise.

Re: Vaterra Twin Hammers for bashing

Maybe it's just me, but I always considered the Vaterra Twin Hammers to be more of a desert runner, rip up and down grassy beaches and such, than a basher. It has a lower clearance than most good bashers would have. You can upgrade to brushless but looking at a few hundred extra bucks too. Nice looking vehicle but I can't help but wonder if there is other options worth looking at first when it comes to bashing. If you want a vehicle to rip up the beach, gravel lots, grassy knolls and look really cool doing, it, then I'd say this is a great choice.
