Chances are, if you've been surfing the pages of RCGroups, you've undoubtedly seen the RC Brain banner ad circulating at the top of the website.

wonder if cogging will become an issue when crawling real slow? is it marketed as a crawler too?

Born again RC'er
no, this thing is built for speed, sort of...

It has a hill climb mode, but not really a crawl mode. With a sensored ESC, it might do OK, for a non-solid axle.

Buggy in style
It's more of a rock racer than a trail crawling?

Admittedly, I was skeptical of Arrma when they released their first vehicle line up and didn't think they'd see more than two or three years before going down the drain...sometimes it's nice to be proven wrong. They're on point with just about everything they do and it's great to see a company making waves the right way.

I would say yes. The precision crawling youre used to with purpose built crawlers and lathe motors just isnt here with this rig. It hits the throttle hard even at low input.

That looks like it'd be one hell of a fun basher monster truck.
