That was me who asked and Patrick at CC went silent on me. He is usually spot on with responding in my previous experience with him. Don't know what it means but if this thing is BL that would be slick.

Either way I am very impressed and Kudos Axial! Forget all the whiners and naysayers.

Really? looks fine to me. My truck is higher than that. Buit like most things in RC. We buy it and sell off all the things we dont want, and then upgrade it how we want. Take it for what it is. Something new.

lets see...King of the Hammers, Phone camera, internet. Probably not how they wanted it to get out, but if they wanted it to leak. They would of just posted it themselves., Its most likely already in production. Chances are they are making sure they are well stocked for the release. When the Honcho came out, it was a real bear for anyone to keep it in stock. I was on the list with RPP for about 2 months.

also 45 days is that just when they are going to accknowlege this rig and still have a 5-6 month waiting period befor its avalible to purchase?
Its always like this for several products in RC and is a good business model. The RCX show is coming up and that is the big deal show stopper of new products. I believe the Honcho was made available right after the show.

My god, People.... LIPO. How long have they been out and you can get em cheap. The XR10 is a Comp truck, Not a scaler.

This does bring up a good point though. It needs a battery tray big enough for a decent size battery for scale trail rides. Something like a 3s 4000mah so we can get a good hour of run time. But make it so it is easy to remove for a smaller battery if we want to comp with it
This is crawling, not shortcourse or 1/10th buggy. and no one is gonna buy a truck intended for KOH/TTC style runs and go trail riding with it. Look, pretty simple if you have followed Axial.
First they made a 1.9 Class 1 truck. The TR Dingo.
Then they made a class 2 truck, The TR Honcho.
It was time they jumped in with a class 3 truck. I will name it
The XtremeTerrain OHV or The TR Checkpoint.

Go on google and search King of The hammers. then watch the video's on You tube. Then go buy Toyofast's video.

It has the looks that i really like. hurry and drop it soon

before i drop all that cash on parts
I would say this will probably be released around Late march, Mid April.. Maybe later. thats just how Axial has been in the past with their other RC's

I hope this rig happens. If no new axles I would wait to buy the chassis and other parts insted of a kit or rtr. Im not picky on brushed or brushless, but I hate stock electronics and I do not want another radio. I prefer to get into a new rig as cheap as possible. I dont know too many who dont have extra motors and such lying around to be used. I like to add optional/upgraded parts and personal touches as well.

well reading this thread with the newer post in it, and the pics. I think it might hurt in the pocket for me. if an average person can get into a scale looking rig is a good deal. but for me man this is going to suck.

but I think axial is always in the front of the pack with their scale rigs, not to say that a hilift or tundra rig is a bad thing, but they put a different body on the same platform. when a totlly new design comes out is allways is a good thing. need to produce more of this stuff to get more people into crawling. scale is always a good thing to do. you can always use the parts to build a comp rig out of it if it don't work

but don't get me wrong I'm all about running scale trucks, makes ya a better driver. go from a comp rig to a scaler can't do it, now go from a scaler to a comp rig no biggy. so I think axial needs to come out with this. how long as the ax10 been out, and how long has the scx10 been out. and witch one have axial sold the most of. in the same time fram, so I think axial and all the guys that are part of their team know's what is going on. so I hope they do come out with this ARTR or RTR or kit no big think with me, just nice to see new things

I can say this there are a TON of Honcho's out there you can't throw a rock with out hitting one and i would say half of scale builds are scx10 based. Axial knows what they are doing and this this is going to sell like hot cake's.. A scale 2.2 buggy They are giving the RTR world a hole new
L @ @ K and that is what draw's new people in......easy Plug and play....

Norm are you forgetting that KOH is kind of an endurance race?

What I mean Josh is that the truck is a TTC/KOH style truck (more KOH though. TTC has been kinda something these trucks have been thrown into because of their design). Its not really designed for them Ohio leaf on the trail runs. Not saying you cant run it like that, but why? then you would just get a Dingo or Honcho for that.

I see this truck more designed for exactly what KOH is! A full all out, run through the desert as fast as possible, mixed with some hard climbing through some of the toughest terrain for a few days.

But this is RC, 2 days would be kinda long.
I would love to see a day long event like this in RC, Isn't that what Jerry is proposing to do there??

with what you guys are posting. trying to make this truck fit in somewere. so why don't you build a track with jumps, kinda like a short course track. then in one section put some rocks in it some were so kind of a koh race. start the race with mult. trucks. would be kinda cool I think

their you go ttc/koh race kinda thing

Well make no mistake. TTC is different. Toyofast's videos show what a TTC looks like in RC
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akJP5...eature=related
One from Ryan Gerrish
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0LFl...eature=related

What Jerry is doing is just that, A short course set up with rocks involved.
This is KOH

was just thinking if this happend indoors. could combine both styles of racing, in one building. the koh would happen on the short course track. the ttc could hapen in the drive way/parken lot area. with a puller sled, that way when guys set up for the koh race, you have guys tring to do the ttc comp. but with it out side, the amount of space of an out door track you could go bulistic on both courses. just kind of thinking on were the new axial could do good at with it's new set up when it come out. some guys will want to set the truck up for a ttc comp, some will want to set it up for koh race, then some will go all out and try to do good in both events

Looks sweet and BL or 35 turn brushed motor setup with Axial's new CC style ESC would be great for the rock racing/KOH style. Wheels look great too! Hope they work the bugs out before release (not like XR10!)

Thanks to OP for the pic!!!

I take it you have never ran on a Ohio trail/comp or anything else. If you had you would realize this truck should be much more capable of actually going somewhere just because of the tire size..

your or anyone's vision of something wont really influence who buys this or what they buy it for..

Maybe when we Grow a desert here in Ohio I will start to agree with you.. Until then we will Have to drive over rocks, mud, leaves, hills, logs, water. You know trail stuff
