    Question How do you like your Teton? I'm thing of getting 1 (or 2).

    I keep checking them out & thinking they look like fun but I haven't pulled the trigger in getting one. I have 2 Rustlers & a 4x4 one on the way but my kid saw me watching the video of the little T and now she wants one. I keep thinking well if I get her 1 I might as well get me one to right.... Just wondering what you guys thing of them? I know it's no speed demon out of the box but I don't really want that in this. I just wanted something fun, reliable, and something I don't have to worry about it breaking. I've watched a few YT video's and see people at the skate part bashing on them & they break but I didn't really think it the T's fault, more of the drivers fault for launching this little guy off a half pipe at full speed 20+ feet into the air and it slams down over & over. Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.
    Thanks ahead of time.

    I've had mine for a few weeks and probably have 12 runs on it. Its quite capable out of the box and fairly resilient. The servo broke somewhere around run 4 with the common gear strip issue. I elected to buy the metal gear kit for it rather than submit a warranty claim. Since then no more issues. I do launch it off small skateboard ramps from time to time and have taken it into the woods with my kids and their larger rc trucks.

    The stock shock oil and shock position is not great and causes the truck to be twitchy at speed. Ive 3d printed some spring spacers and played with oil weight, settling on much heavier oil in the back and a little heavier oil in the front. There is some adjustability in the suspension too but not much, so some turnbuckles are needed to finish adjusting the truck to your driving style. Some of this may be me being nitpicky....

    The included charger is not great so I suggest buying a cable so you can use whatever you charge with already. Run times with a proper charge approach 20 minutes on the included 1200mah battery (the way I drive it).

    I broke in my motor properly and it shows no signs of impending failure. I clean the truck at the end of the day and maintain it per the user manual that you can download from the latrax website, the included manual is just a guide.

    It does about 20mph flat out which is about right. I dont think the chassis will handle much more and still maintain good overall drivability and durability but YMMV.

    I would buy one. Its cheap fun outdoors with your kids.

    Thanks for the reply, I kept reading about people burning motors out in like 4 or 5 runs or something like that & if that's the case I don't wont one. Just looking to run it on the street with the kids. Something that's fun & not to fast or anything we're taking to the skate park.

    I actually have two. One pretty much stock and the other is highly modified with everything imaginable, fun build. Stock engine always ran fine but I didnít run a Lipo. Will need to upgrade servo but thatís easy.

    They are great, motors and servo are the weak points. RPM makes arms now and I ordered TBone racing bumpers. Keeps the car strong. As long as it’s not treated like a 1/10 being about half the size it is a great truck.

    I got two for my daughter and I a few days ago and love them. She is 4 and basically just holds that trigger the whole time and so far it's held up. Has probably six or seven full runs on it. Direct curb hit at the park, numerous barrel rolls and cart wheels, roof landings off jumps, couple inch deep puddles. Hers has taken quite a pounding already and has held up. She mud bogged it pretty hard and I thought that was gonna be it for it, but it survived. My son ran mine full speed into a garbage can and broke the a control arm on day one though. Aluminum set is scheduled to be here on Saturday.

    I'll be surprised if the motor lasts long from what I've read about them, so I might pick up a few spares just in case.
