    Great performing little truck these are.

    Yeah but Pete’s one will always win because yellow is a faster colour 😃

    Yep so fast that the paint comes off

    Nah, the paint falling off is due to my in ability to avoid solid objects.

    This thing continues to surprise me with how competant it is, I have had it out for a few runs in the last couple of months and apart from breaking a 3d printed part in the rear suspension (twice) it just works.

    I haven’t quite settled on the correct motor combination for it, I currently have an 1800KV Holmes hobbies revolver in it that is about the right speed but I want to use that in the Capra, so the next change to this will be to put a Holmes Hobbies 35t 540 in it and see how well that works.

    I am going to re-make the 3D printed part that broke in aluminium and then continue to thrash on this in the up coming year.

    Thanks as always for looking,

    More as it occurs.

    Have you managed to find the missing speed after the Nationals😁

    I actually found far to much speed with the first brushless motor I put in it, the current revolver is just about right but I want that for the Capra, so I hope that the 35T brushed motor will also work nicely.

    I just can agree to all the words above, These ElementRC trucks are a lot of fun out of the box. The stock bumper hinder performance, but you can push the inwards with just two holes drilled to tuck them in.
    Your tube work is really great, it adds a great look.
    The OverlandRC servo winch accompanies the ElementRC in my case and was just mounting and connecting to the receiver. Works flawlessly with the stock radio.

    Thank you for your great pictures.

    Great pictures Pete, looks like and excellent trail day.  I’m so tempted to get one of these, is this the model they’ve just released and IFS kit for?

    For the money I do think they are hard to beat, and yes this is the chassis that the IFS kit is for.
