Default amazed at rc trucks in 2017, 30 years later...

i got my first rc10 kit back when it came with a ceramic and wire speed control. a few years later, got the worlds car. then i stopped till i purchased a RTR ecx torment 2WD. i added some mild upgrades like rpm turnbuckles and some front and rear bumpers. the sct was more fun than the 2wd buggies i had before. i have just finished my first 4x4 sct, the losi ten scte. i am simply amazed at the components, the ease of build, and the well illustrated PAPER manual that came with the kit. the build of this kit by far, was the most fascinating i have ever experienced.

the technology and design in todays rc vehicles is simply amazing. i think that this time is probably the best its been at. the only thing that could represent a true forward leap would be new designs in drive train, suspension, or new designs in vehicle control management electronics. mind you, i wouldnt buy one of those... it would take the fun out of driving for me !.

but hell, i just love building the kit, equiping it with moderately priced electronics, and just having fun at the local dirt track bashing around.

simply amazing kits in this new century... i do not know where the manufacturers could improve upon ... IMO, this is the best time for rc enthusiasts.

now, if they could only reduce the price abit, that would be helpful...
