From seeing some in the flesh they seem good trucks and do look to be competetive in the right hands.

I looked at the team c range, but they are cheap for a reason. The cars are rebranded ansmanns, which aren't the most reliable/best quality, but they are good for budget racing. For a good sc, go hpi blitz, ae sc10, or tlr 22sct.
Hope this helps.

other way around matey, the ansmann is a rebranded team c and the cars are very good quality, i run the x2c and its fantastic, the short courses were winning and constantly making the a finals in the nationals and rob jaques ran his at the invernational and finished second

Yeah, I know about rob. The cars are incredibly low priced, and they did have simon moss on the team for a couple of years, so they are good. I just thought you would get better spares backup with a bigger name. By the way, if you read the team c/absima google translate catalogue, it says absima have decades of experience, right after they state they were formed in september 2011

The spares back up for these is good, abisma are the German distributors of the team c products, google translate isn't always accurate plus they may have decades of experience with other manufactures e.g. One if the members could have been a designer for losi and mugen and someone else could have been the retail manager for hpi or associated

Durango is a good option, I love my 410, it drives more like a touring car than a big off road boat

also been looking to try short course but the price seems silly either ansmann for peanuts or big names for big bucks or a second hand that may need repairing either £60 bashers or £300 factory team cars is there anything between

it depends what you want and how much you want to spend?

2WD or 4WD?

RTR or Roller?

a racer or a basher?

SC is great fun and the best part is crashing into other trucks (Obviously if they deserve it.... Mark) :l ol:
