looking for a rc truck

Anyone know of a rc truck is like the old venom mini giant with a single axle, sixe of 1/12 or smaller?

I like that single axle trucks like the mini giant, tlt, micro crawlers.

The closest I can get to that would be a losi micro crawler. But I want a micro single axle that isn't slow. If they sold kits to change the diff on the crawlers that be great but I haven't heard anything

why not just re-gear the micro crawler, or use a lower wind motor?

Ummm, a tight diff won't cause that... only binding in the driveline or strong magnets will do that.

He's talking about the effect of the worm gear axles, they don't freewheel when you let off the throttle.

above ^^^^ is exactly correct it is losi.s way of not needing a special esc with drag brake cut down cost of the rtr .an another note dont try running it at high rpm as it will melt the worm gears .

That's entirely different from a tight diff... I'm not arguing that worm gears won't stop it almost instantly, just correcting the actual cause.
