Man, I'm impressed with that truck. Seems to be controllable, stable, quick and durable. I still want to look at the Big Rock jump before I pull the trigger. And even then I still don't know if I'll be able to decide. The @Rich Duperbash Senton videos also impressed me and I thought I was happy enough already with one SCT (Slash 2wd VXL.) And I'd sell it but diminishing returns scare me off. I have way too much in in now.
I know the correct answer is to get all three....lol
This hobby makes me want children more than anything ever has. lol! I could have a legitimate excuse to buy two vehicles or more at a time!

I saw his. His vids are always great and he can really drive.

As far as wheels, what's wrong with the ones you have? I like the stock tires. I used to think they weren't good but they actually are. They are great for landing big jumps.

The wheels are a dual diameter. The inside is 2.8 while the outside is 2.2. I think they handle weird because of it and the chevron tread doesn't have as much bite as I think I would have with knobs on most off road surfaces. They also aren't very balanced.

Are those the traxxas "bigfoot/skully/etc" wheels/tires?
If that was directed at me, they are the stock wheels/tires that come on the Granite 3s BLX.

What kind of terrain will you be running it on?
Fairly new to RC so at the moment a BMX track, but a pal and I will be looking for grass, woodland and general bashing terrains I guess. Not too fussed about running on 3s as 30/40mph will do fine.

I have a used HPI Blitz Flux and I do like SC Trucks. A pal suggested a Slash but that almost double the price.

Cheers

The monster truck can simply handle more terrain. I like them both but the monster truck will be what I get for the fact it can handle just about anything I throw at it terrain wise.

Makes sense, what terrains won’t the Senton be good on then ?

Anything other than tarmac, short grass and smooth dirt. Places with tree roots or rocks become an issue. It has small tires and is low to the ground.
