RC ADVENTURES – Great first Radio Control truck – ECX Torment 2wd RTR Short Course Truck!
I was able to get outside and have an up close look at the 2WD ECX Torment 1/10th Scale Short Course Truck. I have to say, it handled very well for being so light! The 15t brushed motor gives it Some pep.. nothing too special – but in my opinion, a great starting point and entry level truck for the beginning hobbyist. There are many choices out there, and many people can feel overwhelmed by the vastness of our hobby. But, I can say that this is certainly a solid starting point. Nothing broke in the video, and the run time was close to 20 minutes on a 2s Lipo (5000mah)
