Brushless Robitronics Stinger EST-2

Post by crazydave » Mon Jan 11, 2010 12:55 pm

I reviewed this car a couple months ago. $120 budget car, but tough as nails. All I did was drop a 5700kv Sidewinder brushless in it, and a pair of Proline M3 Step Pins in the rear, and she flys.

Robitronics is an Austrian company. They are the European distributor for Axial and Losi. Here in America they're known for their Protos buggy and Mantis truggy that include Axial .28s. I seen a guy with one and honestly I thought it was a plastic POS. For the same $279 you could get the CEN Matrix R2 or the Ofna LX-1, both are better deals, and Ofna's parts availability is excellent. The Axial Spec 1 engines are nothing more than basic RTR engines. The Axial RRs are screamers but by no means anything special, and by this point completely irrelevant to the subject. Any rate, 1/8th scale stuff aside, this car is new and aimed right at the Traxxas Rustler entry level market, and so far the only weakness I can find is the flimsy body. There is a lot of wheel slop, but it doesn't seem to effect it.
