the scx10 is more for the scale looks. with the rigid steel C-channel chassis.

I thought they both had the rigid C-channel chassis. I posed the question on an RC crawlers forum and the first reply told me that they're basically the same thing but the TR only needs a charger and batteries to run, hence "TR" or "Trail Ready". Whereas the other requires you to contribute your own electronics and motor.

I have other questions regarding this thing. Should I start another thread for it or is this one OK?

the only difference is the reply you got in the crawler forum, the tr version has electronics so you only need betteries and the rest don't. one version of the truck is only available as a trail ready car, and the rest there is one that's both and one that's only available as a kit.

A stupid question: are these 1:8th or 1:10th? I keep getting conflicting info on this. Sometimes the scale is indicated by the size of the tire: 1:9. Its very confusing.

Sorry for my high density. I have three smaller RC n00bs in orbit around me.

The scx10 kit has better metal links and no electronics, where as the TR has more plastic parts but is a rtr. I have the kit, its 1/10th but not a big truck.

I have this sneaking suspicion that it would cost me more to get the kit and put in my own stuff. If i got the RTR i would definitely improve the rear linkage and get a metal gear servo, but would it come out to the same? I already have a pair of bottom of the line AM 2ch radios which serve me just fine I think.

Probably whatever I do I'd put a better body on it.

Which parts are plastic on the TR that aren't on the normal kit?

The TR kit is growing on me actually. I would gladly get metal bits to spruce it up though.

It would appear that this guy took the scale-ness of it a bit further:

What draws me to this thing is a combination of affinity for the Landrover, budgetary considerations, and the combination of Lexan and injection molded bodywork.

a guy on the boating forum said he got a TR and has driven it really hard for over like 2 months and hasn't had any problems with it yet.

My dream setup would be to have a body that looks a bit more scale, but i can't afford that. Once in a while I see people use the lexan bodies as the basis for some very scale-looking constructions that give the injection molded things a run for their money. I'm not set up for that just yet.

Or if I really want a scale look, should I just go with a CC01 and be done with it?

I'd like the finished model to look like something you'd see driving around town rather than a jacked up rock-crawling monster that would make consumer reports cringe. nevermind that the model is supposed to be a rock crawler. I'm an aesthetics man after all.

What do you guys advise?

I am looking to get one of these trucks in the near future. My problem is that I really want to build it but I want to get everything I need in one package deal. Is that possible or do I have to make a choice? I'll tell you that if a choice has to be made, I will probably go with the kit. I love the building aspect.

In the case that I get the kit to build, I need all the electronics. Can I do this on the cheaper side? I am completely new to this so please forgive my ignorance. I just found that the Trail Ready version has more plastic parts than the kit but with the electronics and radio gear it is only 30 dollars more. I am hoping to spend $350.00 or less if possible. Thanks.
