Those tires look crappy, as if they won't grip on any surface at all.

But i do love that bodyshell. and the rims look different from the rest too.

And compared to the older Trooper it replaced, this one has a better ESC, rated at 45A. Sensored ready, if i'm not mistaken.

but honestly, it does look eeriely like a slash 4x4

Also available on eBay from some sellers as the Art-Tech AC-1, or the Parkflyers SCT-9000. Both of these are OEMs from Art-Tech. Also, some users have noted that the Vkar MASC 4x4's differential fits onto the SCT4.

Diffs can be bought from this ebay seller. Just email him that you need the diffs for the MASC truck.

Our thoughts exactly. But upon closer inspection, it is indeed different. maybe the color of that chassis gives the impression of a Slash clone..

Thanks. I'll have to poison my dad to get one

But surface wise, it does look rather promising..

Both seems to be Slash-inspired. But not a 100% clone though.

Still searching to find its true father..

Well, chassis is different from the bananahobby truck, and so is the body mount..

Similar, but not exactly the same though.

I can't find the thread, but I remember seeing this before with a black chassis, some red anodized bits, and a much more traxxas-y body. Someone pointed out that it was not an exact clone, it was more like the e-firestorm is to the t4. Isn't this the thing that uses bolts instead of nuts to hold the wheels on?

EDIT: D'oh! I was talking about the banana hobby truck, obviously.

This seems like a cheaper, more basher-friendly version. Crappier tires, no aluminum shock towers, no threaded bodies with shiny collars (I think), larger bumpers, the lot.
