||This is a great truck. The kit was an easy and fun build. The instructions are, for the most part, very clear. All the parts come in labelled, and sub labelled bags. Each bag contains only the parts you need for that specific section of the assembly. Every part was well molded and manufactured. There were zero defects or issues with assembly.
The design of this truck is very well thought out. The tolerances are pushed to the maximum, and very little, if anything is left on the table. This is an expensive kit, when you add in electronics, tires, paint, and other supplies you'rre easily looking at $1000's or more for a competitive truck. That being said, the parts included are top of the line, and unlike other cheaper kits, you won't have to upgrade anything on the stock 22SCT kit to run well.
The truck runs well on the track. I have a Traxxas Velineon system in mine, paired with a high speed Savox servo. The stock setup is far too soft for carpet, but may work better on other surfaces. With the right setup, this truck is as fast as anything else out there. It's incredibly smooth. I have driven the SC10 but not enough to say conclusively that the 22sct is better. However it's my opinion that the 22 is a better engineered vehicle.
Since I've had this truck, I've broken one steering knuckle and stripped the idler gear. Both of these issues were because of my error and not the trucks. I know from my 22 Buggy that this chassis design is very string and very durable.
My only complaint is with the body. The plastic and the design itself are too weak. The body started to tare and crack immediately. The windshield area is too close to the fender and does not provide enough support during a flip. Likewise, I think the Lexan itself is too thin. I've since upgraded to a much more durable Pro-line body. Additionally, the body posts are un-necessarily bulky and use and uncommonly small hex bolt.
Other than the issues with the body, this is a great truck. If you're a racer, this truck deserves your consideration.
