I took my Twin Hammer trailing in Maine up a couple different mountains. I am very happy with the amount of torque and speed ilthe motor has. Everything worked perfectly in my opinion. I did strip the spur gear, but I upgraded to a Robinson Racing 87t hardened steel gear. Here's some of the pictures I took with my GoPro Hero 3+ Black camera:

And my personal favorite:

I stopped at a hobby store and picked up an Axial light bar. Here's how it looks mounted:

I have a GCM tower plate kit on order so that I can have upright shocks in the front instead of the cantilever setup.

Vaterra Twin Hammers Build

The kit is built! The build was very straight forward and I was really impressed with the quality of the parts. Some option parts were included with the kit such as the front and rear sway bars and a front diff locker. I chose to install the rear sway bars but left out the front sway bars. I also left the front diff unlocked because I will be using a Castle Creations brushless system. I went ahead and painted the body panels with Tamiya camel yellow paint. I did not install the interior yet, but here's some pictures of my mostly complete kit.
Thanks for following, more to come!
