Ah, that is a bummer. I was hoping it had a separate radio system and ESC. You could get a nice waterproof ESC on eBay for around $15-20, but you'd have to get a different receiver as well.

I wonder if rear wheel steering can be added to this truck with minimal "hacking"? That would be sweet as the short wheelbase would make it turn on a dime with RWS!

Picking one of these up next week from the LHS for my 7 year old. Already ordered one of those cheap 20kg servos on amazon.

They got delivered to my LHS this morning and I had one in hand about 15 minutes later. This is so my 7 year old can come trailing with me. Not a bad little rig for $150!

It's become extremely common on lower priced RCs, as well as on smaller RCs where space is at a premium.

Yes servo and grease the gears in the ales and stuff most likely because if it's like the barrage gen 2's they come bone dry!

Definitely servo. Stock servo barely has enough power to turn the wheels under it's own weight. The 20kg I got on amazon was $18 and has something like 260oz.

So I understand that my TRX4 is a scaler... but I'm kind of surprised by how much it got whipped by the Temper 2. At least at this particular little rock course in my neighborhood lol.

Going to try to have some footage up by morning.

Sweet. I have watched the limited vids of this rig on youtube and it seems to have lots of wheel speed. What would you say the pros and cons are to this? Ive watched your vids of the trx4 which has a much slower wheel speed in comparison. And can you get a slow wheel speed out of the ECX?

Oh as far as top speed the TRX4 sport blows it away. But yes you can slow crawl with the temper though it would be much better if you had throttle expo. That made a big difference with my TRX4.
