Alright, I admit it, I want one.

Hey guys. been reading all the threads here for a while. I'm looking into and debating between the Axial AX-10, and the Losi MRC.
My question is this: will these things go fast too, or are they crawl only? I've only had cheap-o RC's before, so I have no experience with anything like these.
thanks,
Dan

with worm gears etc the losi isnt going to be speedy. An ax10 can move pretty good on the right motor.

Because that's fun too.
I didn't expect they did. guess i'll just get one for going fast and jumping, and one for crawling.

Buy the AX10 for crawling, then buy yourself a traxaas slash for speed

I have a HPI savage .21 nitro powered truck with a .28 swapped in, goes somewhere around 50mph and I've had it for about 4 years. It's not a crawler but something made for high speed jumps and going flat out, but now I want a crawler. Fun truck but stay away from nitro engines because all they give you are problems and need more attention than OBAMA is getting right now

the Axials with the novak Goat brushless motor, haul ass compare to anything else. its an 18.5T motor. you dont really need anything faster than that in a crawler.
