Pictured, clockwise from top left, BSD BS807T Short Course Truck, Viper XST 550-motor 1/10 Monster Truck (also available with Brushless motor), BS809T Land Ripper 2 1/8 Brushless Buggy, Leopard Mini-zilla 4WD Twin Motor Twin 7.2V high performance mini-truck. Short course truck has been sold, refer to earlier post for review. Viper XST and Leopard Mini-zilla are gifts but also available for sale. Land Ripper 2 is an awesome buggy! That and the SCT are rugged as hell and among the fastest in their class. I’m taking the manufacturers word on this that Land Ripper 2 kicks the predecessor’s ass. Been wanting to do a video on the LR2 but no one to film whole I drive it.

BSD / Redcat Short Course Truck Size Comparison

Http://Hpisavagex46.wordpress.com. Here is the BSD | Redcat Aftershock 8E put beside the 1/8 Scale Hpi Savage X 4.6, and the BSD Viper Xst 1/10 Monster Truck (Aka Redcat Earthquake) just so you can have a better idea on its dimensions. If you realize, 1/10 SCTs are often as large and have wheelbases as the 1/8 trucks and buggies. Yet, some track operators forbid running 1/8 class cars n trucks on the very tracks the 1/10 SCTs run on.

Is the BSD Land Ripper really a Narrow Track Buggy?

There’s been much talk about the Bsd Racing Land Ripper – that it is longer and narrower than race-class 1/8 buggies. As I have a Kyosho Inferno, the most popular IFMAR race car, I decided to have visual comparo. Verdict: Same wheelbase, same track. If you thought it was longer or narrower, it’s just an optical illusion.

    Can you Order parts for the BSD racing buggy V2 and mail them to the USA i cant find a few parts for this buffy like the wing mounts and uper A-arms .. most the other parts from RedCat’s Backdraft 8E fit. I trying to find a few parts for it ..

    • Yup I can.. You’re right.. the main differences between the two are simply the A-Arms and the wing mounts. But for the A-arms you’ll need a set of new dogbones and axles.

      However, the front arm carrier is the same as the Backdraft. Something to think about is that the A-arms put more stress on the arm carriers than the flexible I-arms. Though mine have slightly warped, they’re still holding up… even after breaking the front chassis twice. So I guess they’re still rather tough.

      I also recommend you may wanna change all the wheel hub screws cos the stock ones are really pliable. I am currently using Titanium screws on mine- which came from an Inferno screw kit.

      About your question, I can order the parts for you and have them sent. Postage shouldn’t cost much as they aren’t heavy.
