I doubt that they would release UMG10s back to back like that. I Also think itís too soon for a 1.9 Wraith kit release or any other kit release (not saying Iím not ready for another kit).

If they make add on portal assemblies (like SSD did) they make the scalers happy and add sales to an existing product. If this was always planned , great marketing. Itís also very wild speculation on my part as I would love to see add on Portals.

How can you call something with worm gears lame?

Is your signature a lie?

If it was about to be winter - and more of an indoor time - I bet the people would've appreciated this. Proline Ambush or Losi Trail Trekker were kinda fun ("kinda"). But I don't get why you release something like this now?
And then, who enjoys working on a 1:24 rig when it/s already difficult to work on a 1:10. Let alone the non existing aftermarket parts...
They sure get our hopes up (still!) but shouldn't play with it for too long. Even hardcore Axial fans will turn away at some point and don't bother.

I dont even think a hardcore axial fan would pick this up.

I sure don't. The Associated/Element RC news about a crawler are far more exciting at this point.

Iím gonna wait and see what the aftermarket looks like and what people do to gear down and make it more of a slow flexible machine that doesnít bounce around as much.

May not be for everyone, but I travel a lot for work (with camera equipment that stuffs my bags tight) and would love to be able to scratch the crawling itch in places Iíd otherwise not be able to.

That being said, 1/24 is damn small. Maybe 1/18 would have moved on the rocks a little more scale?

I went from building 1:24 models as a kid to collecting 1:18 diecast musclecars to 1:10 rc's. There's no going back for this old fart!
