The ECX® Torment™ Short Course Truck has been one of the best handling, most durable, beginner-friendly short course trucks since its debut. The Torment adds in features aimed right at the first-time RC driver to make sure you are successful and have a great time. The motor has been upgraded to a 15T Dynamite® motor, increasing both acceleration and top speed. Short course trucks are often run in the harshest environments, and the Torment is up to the task with new waterproof electronics. To also help withstand these environmental challenges are heavy-duty driveshafts, designed to transfer power from the slipper clutch-equipped transmission to the Dynamite SpeedTreads™ tires. A 2-amp peak detection charger gets your batteries charged in under an hour. The Torment comes with the choice of one of two different scale short course truck trim schemes that look great and make it easy to see your truck in a crowd.
The Torment SCT is fully ready-to-run, complete with all batteries needed, including the AAs. All that needs to be done is charge the battery with the included charger.
The ECX Torment may be affordable, and it may be awesome looking, but it's also super strong with a nylon composite material used throughout the chassis construction. This gives it a high strength, high durability, as well as enough flexibility to withstand the punishment it was designed for.
