Stolen from FB obviously. Official announcement to come but nothing is a "surprise" anymore sadly. I'm impressed and will probably add one to my fleet.

To be honest you could probably build a better one yourself, and it's exactly how you want it, took me a week to do mine, just a hour or two a night.

My LHS said they will have one showing up tomorrow so most places should have them soon. I believe the official release date is tomorrow.

Hmmm...
Looking forward to some reviews.

Not bad at all. Maybe I will get one for my b day in June... Depending on reviews. I need a dedicated crawler since my ford is a trail queen now.

I don't run full size batteries, so it looks like I'll need to 3D print something to hold may smaller packs. I'll also need to get a 3D printer.

I have been wanting a 3D printer for a while so I look for any justification I can to buy one. Eventually I will come up with enough excuses to get one.

I won't try to talk you out of it. I like mine, even though I haven't used it in ages. It's just that for some simple stuff, it's a lot faster, easier, and more durable to bend some Kydex or ABS sheet, and this would definitely be one of those cases.

I must admit i dont really understand this release. While it is awesome in so many ways, the most important part, the actual driving style, seems to be identical to an SCX10.. Just compare the promotional video for both this and the 2.2 version, the 2.2 is a rock bouncer, this.. it drives just like my Deadbolt.

It looks this could have been so much better with just small changes, like a higher turn motor, and maybe some longer shocks.

I definitely see where you are coming from there. Different people have a different weapon of choice for fighting the same battles though.

Don’t most people change the motor and shocks anyway? I myself haven’t bought an RTR yet i didnt improve on and make it my own. Hopefully they release a kit version.

...meh...I'll stick with my full-size Kit Wraith. Although, I like the opening front hood, battery tray, and CMS. That's about it
