Axial has bored me to death with all of their disappointing releases and I'm not sure people are that into RTR moon buggies, but I'm interested to see what comes of it. A more scale scaler would have been a better direction IMO.

See how easy that was Axial?

Fire the goobers who think this stealth marketing works.

All it does is piss people off.

Axial doesn't care what a person wants, they care what people want. Rightfully so. Hence why I build all my rigs from parts.

Werd. Teasers create hype which I guess the correct term would be market buzz these days. None of that matters to guys like us. Just say something is coming and then drop it and fire up the marketing train so we all know about it.

Could be what the servo is for.

I'm hoping for OD. Both would be nice.

It's actually a pretty damn good teaser video. Just look at how many of you are talking about it! ;)

Not caring about what the consumer wants isn't intelligent business. Although Axial and company was on the verge of dying before Horizon swooped in and saved them from their bad business practices.

I'm really hoping for some major changes though. First and foremost a dropdown trans and more scale open diff axles... But that's probally wishing for too much, lol

That's not at all what I said. They don't care what YOU want, they care what the market wants. You think something scale is better but the majority of consumers want something they can zip tie a bunch of shit onto and put in an annoying sound module so they can pretend they're in a rock bouncer.

They don't want to appeal to an individual but to the percentage of the market.

I completely misread your previous comment. I had just woken up at that point.

Portals and a stock dig. Wonder if it's CMS or not.

I agree with you about recent releases being boring AF, however this is awesome. Finally a real scale "rock crawler". They have been rehashing their trail trucks for a decade... Glad this is coming out (I also love W.E. Rock).

My Unlimited Moon Buggy may need a Pro Mod to go with it:

Why would they do a chassis mounted servo on a pro mod rig? That isn't sthcale!

You can thank GP for basically stifling any and all cool plans the brains at Axial had 3-4 years ago. That was where the bad practices came from and it cascaded down into the umbrella companies, affecting many businesses in the industry pretty heavily.

I saw a super early "prototype" of this new vehicle at Axialfest 2017, although it didn't have portals under it yet. To see something come from that is awesome, especially now with Horizon backing and it's coming out of a factory that tools race car kit parts. Should be a good buggy, I'm excited to see it finally come out.
