I have tested my X5 on its rubber tyres and is not too bad,BUT have just poured some eurethane to try,they may have too much grip,time will tell when they are cured.
It would be good to see how the truck compares to the X5's.

Fair enough, truck it is then...

What weight are you aiming for with the raid's?
Have you left the suspension in?
Any other tips / tricks for these beasts?

Given how tippy my raids are, I think eurothane's will most likely be a little to grippy.

New braid and power wires have now been fitted to the RS200...
Couple more grams of lead added, and the total package is now about 100g.

Seems much nicer than previously.


Still not too sure which way to go with the raid truck...
Do I lock the suspension? Do I use Yellow or Blue shocks? Do I remove the springs, but leave the axles free?
Do I lock the drop guide? Do I remove the sprung guide?

So many options with these Ninco trucks...


Also, are we allowed to remove the spare wheels that are on the tray of some of the stadium trucks?

Had a play with my raid truck on my 'targa' style truck...

Gnaaa....

Run it with all yellow shocks.
Run it with all blue shocks.
Run it with half / half yellow / blue shocks.
Run it with no shocks and axles free floating.
Run it with no shocks and axles locked in up position...

And so very little differences...
Some slightly easier, some slightly faster, but certainly, no clear winner...

Moving the ~25g additional weight forward and aft on the side plates had a bigger difference with aft being better.

Still a long way to go with this truck though...
