know anybody that has a associated rc18t? than you know some body that has a propulse. Go to both makers websites and get a exploded view of each. They are almost a mirror image. Megatech- maker of the propulse most have bought some rights from associated, I mean they really look that identicle. The shocks look pretty cheesy from looking at one 1st hand. I decide on getting a factory 18t for $30 more sense I have all the electrics anyway and would probably end up buying that same stuff to put it on the propulse. If you do look the cars up, the propulse is found in the radio shack site along with the expoded view. I haven't been able to see it though on the megatech site.

Angry

Interesting... I cant say i know about the rc18t... or even if its a good rc... just wondering if the propulse is something i'll be happy taking with me to the desert... or even in the dirt fields behind my house... and wondering how fragile the thing is... i want something that can takes some abuse... but then thinking about buying replacement parts for them... if radio shack acts how they do about xmods then im thinking i probably wont be happy with them... whenever i have a question about xmods... they tell me "maybe you can get it from the xmods site..." ...as if they dont know it sends you to the RS site... juuuurks... grrr...

My buddy got a pro-pulse(the truck) about two weeks ago, and I will admit I was impressed.It is very fast out of the box(I would guess realistically around 20mph) and seems to be somewhat durable. So far he has only managed to snap off the front bumber and break the front suspension mount. He made a new mount w/ some aluminum, and now just bends it back after bad crashes. This is his first R/c other than xmods, so he has,of course, been running into all kinds of things. We were jumping some small skateboard ramps the other day, and it flew pretty darn good. I did notice the suspension seemed to bottom out pretty easy after most jumps. The price is currently $99.99 at the R/S around here,but that is w/o the battery pack and charger. These will cost you $39.99. I had recomended he get a mini-t, but he had the "Got to have one" bug. He is more than happy w/ it, so maybe it was a good choice.
I will post updates as he runs into any issues or performs any modifications.

I went NITRO...

I picked up a used Traxxas T-Maxx and Team Associated RC10GT for $390 off of ebay... ended up going Nitro R/C... all i have to say is that these things are both great cars... kinda wanted to get a propulse just to test it out and whatnot... but all the upgrades are still not available and that turned me away from them... not to mention we have a hobby people and hobby town right next to my work... so ya... RC10GT is a fast little car... and the T-Maxx already ripped my friend's gas tank off of his nitro truck... hahah... laughed at him and told him that he shoulda put his body on...

from looking at the pro pulse they look pretty junky... just another attempt from rs to get into hobbie level rc the xmods were pretty good performance suffard after a enough recks though so the t-maxx is an awsome choice, i have a friend with an e-maxx and its a blast

thats for sure... after messing with the t-maxx and rc10gt... the bodies on the propulse are way too thin for flipping the things over... and parts are way more expensive... eh... iono... i think i'll stick with team associated and traxxas all the way... but i must admit i still love my lil xmods for indoor...

also... for 100 dollars plus the 40 for the battery and charger... you could pick up one of the clearance hobby store grade trucks... way better place to spend 140 +tax...

but still im tempted to drive one of those propulse... maybe if they go 50% off like all their flopper stuff... i'll pick one up... ^_^

I own the truggy(because really it's truck body or buggy body; theyre both the same otherwise) refurb off ebay for $70, and its great except the harder-to-find parts.
Most of the (Associated) RC18 parts work fine, some of them sorta work, the rest require other RC18 parts to work. Me, I build my own bumpers dangit(spatubumper!!)
Megatech is being awful slow getting megapro(propulse replacement) parts available.

Nice oob pluses are: good bearings at all joints, ball differentials, cheap but decent batteries(now, anyway)
Cons are: slightly different parts being very incompatible(dogbones, bumpers, shock towers, and gear cases come to mind.) The ESC is screwed (throttle-zero-wise) on some of them. Aforementioned parts are hard to get replacements for(I see no dogbones at all, for example.)
