Vaterra Twin Hammers 1/10 4WD RTR Electric Rock Racer w/DX3e 2.4GHz, LiPo Battery & Charger
Dalton Baker - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Thursday, October 24, 2013
This is an awesome trail truck. I did have a couple issues with the truck. First of which, just getting into the thing was, not difficult, just time consuming. The small head screws didn't really help. Second, the low clearance was a little annoying, so it couldn't make it over as rough of terrain as, say, and Axial Wraith. The servo is fairly slow, but that's to be expected from an rtr. Chief among which, the shifting servo. I replaced it twice. Due to factory trims, both servos burned out. I troubleshooted this problem and after getting a third servo, I calibrated it properly and the drivetrain was much better. But why am I dissing on this truck? It's an amazing piece of innovation. Just the idea of the truck is fantastic. The 2-speed tranny works great, and the driveline is definitely brushless capable. I had a Dynamite 6800kv combo just for fun. It didn't even break a sweat, but it did break some parts. That was my fault, not the truck's. It had a pretty gnarly nosedive and broke the front diff housing, bent the front suspension pins, and broke an A-arm. That was still my fault. The brushed system was actually surprisingly quick for what it is. And it's all waterproof, I can't reasonably ask for more, except maybe a faster servo, but that's besides the point. The durability is excellent if you don't drive it like I did. It's a little expensive, but I think it's worth it.
