Another New Slap Ma Fro! Bashing Video --> 11



11 trucks (one's techincally a car), 1 plane, and lots and lots of damage! It was a rough day for our stuff, so it's a good thing we had so many or else it would have been a short day. The biggest disappointments of the day - Savage (mine), LST, and Menace. 1 jump and they were out. My GT didn't even make it to a jump, so I guess that was worse. Even the plane suffered some damage! Well, EVERYTHING suffered some damage that day!

11 (WMV, 27mb, 7:20)



Enjoy!

Damn, what electrics are in the RC18T?? Lots more durable that I would have thought too.

The 18T has a Mamba Competition X brushless motor and controller, otherwise it's stock. Even the battery pack is stock. So far it's been pretty tough!

How disappointing. The LST broke off the first jump. I'm also suprised that the Genesis broke on after those two little jumps(compared to the others) all in all, excellent video. If anyone is in search of a durable bashing truck, make sure you check these guys out before you go buying.

Yeah, we were pretty bummed about the quick damage on those vehicles as well. The LST did make it through a few jumps that we didn't catch on film, but not many. I think landing head-first on a frozen ground like that isn't so good for the truck! But the Genesis....there's no excuse for that.

The Savage near the end definitely won the toughness contest! Fortunately none of the damage on any of the vehicles was expensive, other than the Storm chassis.

Big Grin

You guys make great action packed vids,these trucks sure took a beating.With these jumps and in cold weather plastic parts will snap like twigs.

I am impressed with the 1/18 little bugger,the Mamba sure makes it move.Cannot wait to try my two new Mambas.About to get yself the LST,better watch out and beef up before a beating.

Great vid,another one in a great series

SMF is awesome! Thanks for the videos! How durable is the T maxx? How much more durable is the REVO? Thanks

Thanks a lot!

We've only had one T-Maxx in our group and it was disappointingly brittle. After dumping a few hundred into it with RPM nylon parts, some aluminum, some titanium, big-bore shocks, and then a .21 mid-block engine to accomodate the extra weight of the hop-up parts, it's finally a pretty good truck!

The Revo is MUCH better out of the box than the Maxx durability-wise, although we're still not big fans of the TRX 2.5 engine.

You guys need to get to work on another vid. You guys run a mgt? How does it stand up to the savage as far as durability?

I know we do, the weather and our busy schedules haven't been kind to our desires to go bashing!

No MGT in the group yet, unfortunately. We'd love to add an MGT, TNX, and Mammoth to the SMF stable for some proper testing, and eventually the Warhead if it ever comes out. But for some odd reason nobody is donating trucks to us to "test" so we have to dish out the cash from our own shallow pockets, which means it'll probably be a while!

I like the tnx also...
That would be smart if compinies gave you their trucks. Everyone watches you guys push rcs to their limits. Good advertising if you ask me.
