Did Someone Say "Truck Racing"???

Recommended Posts

Came in the mail today.

Avant Slot raid truck.

This baby has 2 (thats right 2!!!) motors! 1 drives the front wheels the other drives the back wheels. I will take a photo later of the insides.

The body is extremly light and with the 2 motors to weigh it down, it is not as top heavy as i was expecting. It is quick off the mark but doesnt have a great top end speed.

Damn expensive those Dakar trucks, hope you picked it up for a steal. I've been looking for a long time at that Repsol one, they've all sold out pretty quickly and they simply don't come up very often if at all on ebay. Best I could do I think was around the $100 mark.

 

Anyways, great looking truck, appreciate the picture next to the Fly Truck. They look like they are a hoot.

I'm sure i got the last one from topslots. As far as i know they are/were not available or not imported in australia. I think that was about the price i payed, plus shipping. I'm really happy with it but have only ran it on my race track (my dog chewed the wiring for my rally track completely stuffed it..). A few modifications are needed to gazzas and flipsides tracks so it can fit under the bridges. I would get another one.
