I havent driven one... but from what I can see its a decent crossover vehicle... its certainly not a revo but it goes fast and has monster truck capabilities... its not a comp crawler but can do some minor crawling over "decent" sized rocks... I like that its totally waterproof and has 2 gear sets... not for me... but definately a nice overall truck....

I've owned one for a while and would have to say it's a cross over. I'd like to run with a comp crawler sometime but am pretty sure that it would keep up. It has tons of torque, so much that I've ripped tires and snapped several (plastic) axles before. It was certainly the right truck for me and will pretty much run over anything if if you know how to crawl. If you've got a full time crawler I'd love to compare the two on the same terrain. I'm pretty confident that at a minimum, it would keep up. I'd say that if you want to crawl AND bash around it's perfect. If you want to crawl in competition, do more research before buying it. I wish it had a little more speed but can always install a Mamba Monster to get the job done. As I said before, I'm glad I bought mine and, in the low gear with the diffs locked can go pretty much anywhere and over anything. If you, or anyone else want to test mine out to decide for yourselves just let me know. I know a couple people on this site have used mine at either S&H or at the Livingston RC Park and were impressed. It drives over the small pile of rocks at S&H as if it were flat (from a crawling standpoint).
I'm on my way out to the RC park soon and will have it with me. Stop by and try it out.
