    Official Latrax 1/18 Desert Prerunner Video Thread

    This thread is for videos of your LaTrax SST only. If you have a question for one of the people posting a video, please send them an e-mail or a PM so the thread does not get filled up with people talking. This is a place for videos not people asking what body or tires someone is using.
    When you post a video, it would be greatly appreciated of you would post a detailed summary of what hop-ups you had on your vehicle (ie. type of camera) at the time the video was taken.
    Anything off topic will be deleted.

    Short clip of my SST on my backyard track (work in progress) at 100% power, all stock (needs new spur & pinion gears, stock gears stripping from dirt getting in, truck runs slower), filmed with iPhone 5. Love this SST!

    Talking Small enough to drive inside, big enough to drive outside!

    A few laps with my SST on my 1/10th scale backyard track (still working on layout & jumps ). The truck is running at 100% power (setting 1 on esc), it's all stock (have the upgraded shocks on the rear, and new electrical connectors). It was filmed by my loving wife with her iPhone 5 from our rooftop. Love the SST!

    Wink Here's how many wrecks I caught on camera today

    Filmed with a Nexus 7 2013 (low fps) & an iPhone 5. Same trucks as above. I love these things! Check out the abuse I give them.



    The only things that broke on the red truck were one stock shock, from a head on collision, and the stock motor's positive tab at the end of the day from a hard landing (time for the brushless motor like the Blue Truck).
    The ONLY damage to the blue truck was the body, probably because the temp was 22f.
