I don't care if it's a Jeep or not as long as it's a new chassis.

Looks like the shape could be this?

If Axial makes anything with Magpul on it, I'm all over it.

That would be bad ass! I don't see it happening because of the snowflakes.

To me it looks like a chassis, more like the Wraith, where the tires aren't under the body. If Axial wants to remain anywhere near the top of the sales game the SCX10 III better be coming sooner rather than later. Although the SCX10 II could still be selling like hotcakes and I'd never know since I don't have access to those numbers. If this is just another Jeep body on one of their existing chassis

Look at Traxxas with the TRX-4. They already have a licensed Land Rover, Ford and Chevy all on the same chassis. They didn't just get one license from one brand and give us the same turd body over and over and over again. Axial Jeeps are nauseating at this point!

The other pic I saw.



Not much to see other than it has a Spektrum radio.

While the Magpul Jeep that Soze posted is very likely, a tube buggy with AR44s like this would be so much more bad ass.

Considering Axial's last new release was the Yeti Jr. re-re as a SxS I 100% agree.

When's the last time one of these "teasers" ended in something exciting? I hope Axial has been paying attention and comes out with something truly unique/cool, but unfortunately based on past experiences, I have my doubts.

Well I just saw a rumor flying around on FB that it could possibly be a 1.9 Wraith of some kind. I don't know, we shall see!

Oh boy lol, I built my own already, I hope it's not that! Whatever it is I hope the plastic is better at least, always good to see new things come out but I hope it's actually something new.

Is the Wraith platform really worth keeping alive? I thought the Bomber already killed the Wraith's sales?

i want better plastic, metal links, and steel balls.
get back to the roots of axial...Make Axial Great Again.

however, traxxas has been getting most of my money lately, my scx10.2 kit isnt even assembled from when it was released.
axial really needs to step up their game!

Valid point. Maybe it's a Bomber with a Jeep body...

My thoughts exactly! But I have seen quite a few 1.9 Wraith builds in the past. I started building one a year ago, but never found the time to finish it.
