well, the txt is not what your looking for then. It is heavier than a clod, slower(due to higher gearing ratio but don't forget the E-Maxx tranny!) and will have almost exactly the same suspension since its solid axle. You're not talking about a stock clod are you? Coz if you are,then the TXT-1 is a million times better! If you have a mod clod, then its a different story. But yeah, if you want to go fast, you can equip the TXT with an E-Maxx tranny or maybe you should think about getting hotter motors or adding more cells in your clod.

Exactly. I don't have anywhere near that kind of power in mine. I just have two 17x2 motors and it's got tons of torque and is pretty fast for such a large truck. It's great for jumping and it tears up and down curbs like nothing. And high speed trips are a dream, it glides over all but the biggest obsticles.

That's what happens to a mostly stock TXT that got a Hacker B50S motor, and 12 cells :)

I still say get the Emaxx, for the cost you pay for the TXT, you can get the Emaxx for amost half the price. With that extra money you would spend on the txt, throw a few hops ups in it.
With the independent susspension you cannot go wrong. It's fast stock. At least i think so. That is what i have to jump around lol

and put teh savigns into fixing it often as it WILL break (but so will a txt if you push it too far, the txt have more metal stock, metal = stronger)

I'm able to eat E-maxxes for lunch with that truck. Tug of war, or a straight line drag :)

Plus i don't break down all the time like the E-maxxes that i ran with over the summer. The only thing that gives regularly on that truck are the Maxx sliders i use on it, but in a way they act like a slipper clutch.

Sure, it corners like a wet loaf of bread, but that video is before i machined anti-roll torsion bars. In that video the truck was still running stock axles, before i machined some duplicate components out of S7 and A2 tool steel, and upgraded to roller bearings :)
