*Note: This is the KIT version requiring full assembly and your own electronics.
Get ready to tear up the local dirt track with the new Turnigy SCT 2WD 1/10 Brushless Short Course Truck! This version of the SCT arrives in KIT form requiring assembly. This is a great option for those of you who like to build and want to setup this truck with your own electronics.
The SCT chassis is lightweight yet rigid offering a perfect combination of weight savings and strength. Additionally, it features large front/rear and side impact bumpers to protect your model while running.
This truck includes proper short course style racing wheels, soft compound tires for increased traction and handling, as well as a pre-trimmed body shell. Also, with features such as fully adjustable suspension, aluminum oil filled shocks and adjustable camber/castor, it is easy to fine tune the ride to the conditions of your favorite track or bashing spot.

The build went pretty smoothly. There are a few places where the instructions could be a little more clear. It presented some challenges for the 16 year old first time builder but nothing the 42 year old veteran couldn't help him through. The chassis is very narrow which does not leave a lot of room for running gear on the sides. You have little choice but to mount the esc to the battery hold down. We had to mount the receiver sideways to get it to fit on the side of the chassis but it is an old school synthesized rx, not a 2.4ghz. There are quite a few interchangeable parts between this Turnigy and the old Kyosho Ultima SC: the rear t plate and hinge pin blocks being the most notable. Some key differences are the transmission which uses all metal, 32 pitch gears, 32 pitch spur/pinion, and larger drive pins on the dogbones. The metal gears including the gear diff add rotating mass but do make it able to handle huge amounts of power. The real standout of this kit are the huge alloy shocks. They look like they were borrowed from an 8th scale buggy. The included springs are way too stiff for a vehicle this light, making the ride height very high. It makes for great jumping ability but the raised cg hampers cornering. All things considered, this rig represents an excellent value but it is not for a beginner builder.Great SCT for the price.
Pros: strength of diff and transmission, fully tunable, strong aluminum. Cons: dog bone rear axle( i prefer CVD), 32p spur gear (i prefer 48p), no ball bearing on servo saver hub, no polished hinge pin on front C hub, front and rear suspension towers are made of too soft plastic.The truck is great apart from the bodyshell, it is made out of a really brittle plastic and snapped on the 1St rollover, so don't bother painting it.The bad:
The body will only last a couple of runs on the track, not bashing it.
Turnubluckles cannot be adjusted on the truck,too tight they will snap off. No matter how much I screwed in and out with grease, the do not become loose enough.
Spare parts you need are always out of stock, luckily they were in stock when I bought the truck.
Shocks aer too long and the springs bind with the shock body
Easy to build, maual easy to understand, does not break so easily on track, good handling out of the box (I use shorter shocks from Blitz). Enough tuning possibilitesSuperb Kit, Easy to Build and everything fits in Place like it should. Had a lot of Tamiya Kits, and the quality has no difference. I had some Missing Ball Links, but this isnt a big issue. The Price is more then good and im happy with the Truck. Waiting for my Brushless Combo to arrive, and then go out to have some fun. Have already the SCT 2 WD ARR Version, which is the car of my daughter and the Desert Buggy for my son. Were all happy with our cars. Thanks HobbyKingI am happy that I buy this SC, very very good, but only the Manual is little complicated.Built the kit and was pleasantly surprised by the quality for the price. Installed an Airtronics Super Vortex Zero esc and Tekin Redline Gen 1 17.5t motor and bashed away. Run it on a Nanotech 5300 2s battery and have broken one turnbuckle on a stick. Shocks leak a bit but that's normal. Truck drivers great. The only thing that I would say is below average quality is the body, but that doesn't bother me at all. In general a good deal at a good price.AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this car is amazing the build quality of the components are of top quality the car is huge and i mean huge it has standard 12mm wheel hex,s so you can add any wheels you like i really recommend this car to any one wanting an off road car very pleasedNice affordable kit if you just want to try the hobby.
Negative is the body that will break on first roll over. Also get other foams before assembling the wheels, the included will disintegrate really fast which is a shame since the tires are OK. Make sure you limit the travel on the rear shocks since they are too long and will destroy the out drives in the diff.
So a bit of work to get running but I only have a broken a arm after a full speed hit on a wall so general quality is OK for "normal" running. If you plan on huge jumps and crazy stuff it's probably not the model for you.I had Turnigy 2WD Desert Buggy Racing for several years; I added all the feasible options; full metal, my dog (50kilos) runs after the car to his training !!!!!!!!; I bought this kit, all parts of the Turnigy Desert Racing Buggy 2WD go perfectly, the dampers are better and more voluminous,
construction is exciting all parts are present but happiness !!
Big thank you (again) has HobbyKing
