simply the best ! Review by juboc66

i'm so very pleased with this beast,went off of all the reviews and video and pieced mine together with (2) 4s 5000 mah lipos, stronger steering servo for back-up,but after running mine; i'm happy to say that the stock servo does a great job. you have to keep your eyes focused on this rocket becasuse it's just that fast. i love this over the nitro because there's far less aggevation due to always tuning the nitro's and its far $cheaper$ to run.I get 45 min. per 4s out of the 2 i've gottten. Thanks, redland,ca.(hobby people) for making this a wonderful buying experience for me. (Posted on 3/2/11)

This XTM Rail is awesome=)
I am running one NiMH 7 cell 8.4v 5000mah by Venom. It gets up and goes. But it's time to up grade to a LiPo battery. Everyone needs one. (Posted on 2/20/11)
Lightning in a Bottle!!!! Review by BiGG ShaY dAwGG

I initially went to HP to buy the XT2 because it was on sale. In comparison to the Rail, the rail was much more durable and only $40 more so I bought it. W O W!!!! The Rail has "stupidiculous" speeed!!! I cart wheeled it twice, the second time was serious and no problems!! I am running a 4s 3000 and also 3s 2200(x2). Be careful not to burn speed control when running the series, I got a puff of white smoke out of the ESC!! I ran it on the baseball diamond, parking lot, sandbox at the park.... AWESOME PERFORMANCE in the sand w/o sand paddles!! This buggy has so much torque that im getting sidewayz on takeoff, may need to stock and extra esc though! Im just getting back into cars for the 1st time since a kid and this is a GREAT start!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BUGGY!! no joke (Posted on 2/16/11)

Holy S$!t Awesome Review by Army Pilot

I love this rail it flies. I am stationed in Iraq and my buddies here run slash 1/10th SC trucks and I demolish them on them on the track. The rail is so smooth and now all of the guys here complain that I have a unfair advantage. I am running 2s 35c 5000 lipos. Other than that my rail is bone stock. I did under estimate the rails quickness and smashed into a curb the first day I had it out, happy to report 10 dollars later and one upper A arm and I am back racing. I 100% recommend the rail its truelly badass. (Posted on 1/18/11)
This thing rocks! Review by Tim the basher
Rating
Waited for half year, finally the prize was "right" so I picked one up and I put a 2s first to test on my drive way . Right away I could tell how much torque it has. This morning I found a whole city block and with the 4s it flies! The thing drives so smoothly that I don't have to worry any over corrections, I was told by some guys awhile back that the mechanical sound of this buggy isn't the best, I am glad to report mine didn't have the cheap-gritty sound as I was warned. Radio is great, bind from the factory w/o any glitch. The only thing I think could be a bit better is the servo, it's kind of slow and the torque could be higher, but at this price XTM really has out done themselves! Hobby People is providing better and better merchandise. I am a happy customer. (Posted on 1/8/11)
Great looking car for the money! Review by Kanevil
Rating
I got the Rail over the Xmas holiday and that thing hauls, esp with the 4S Lipo pack! The Rail is a great looking buggy, has great components, and very durable for the price! I have also convinced 2 of my co-workers to get it, haha. The only thing that kept me from posting a 5 stars was the weak front suspension arms. I broke mine from a minor crash and wasnt sure if it was defective or the quality of the plastic. But overall, I am happy with my purchase!! (Posted on 1/3/11)
Durability concerns... Review by WC350z
Rating
As mentioned by LG I too adjusted the LVC to 3.2v, however, left punch (torque) exactly where it is. I too run a 5000mah 40C 4S Lipo.

There is a slight incline at the end of the asphalt, just before grass area which sent buggy 8ft or so in the air and when it landed it did several bad tumbles since it was going almost full speed. Outcome...top of the roll cage is scratched and plenty of dirt and grass in battery compartment, other than that no issues.

At first I was concerned about durability because of how heavy it is, but it is well built. Cant imagine this thing on 6S. May have to swap out the ESC and motor just to find out, eventhough, I love the stock ESC and motor. (Posted on 12/31/10)
