I think i saw that one in a Facebook group. Pretty sure it's 1/10 and looks like it. Either way definitely not a micro crawler

Honestly depending on the price even for a 1/10 it's at least a great source of a body and Scale accessories. Maybe even the chassis

I assumed it was smaller in size, more like the B-1. I figured it was the same thing with a different body. If it's 1/10, that's a hell of a deal!

Looking closely at the pics, some of the components don't appear to be sized right for 1/10. The dogbones in the knuckles, some of the end links, etc. I still think this is around the same size as the B1.

EDIT: Gearbest is calling it 1/16, so I think it will be around the same size as the B-1.

Ok, I spent more time looking at it. It looks like it uses the same axles as the B-1, and is the same overall size. It looks like they've converted to a 3 link with shocks, but I can't see coil springs on those shocks. Most likely it's a friction shock with an internal spring.

Unfortunately I can't seem to find any pics that detail the under side to see whether it's still got the toy grade steering, but I assume it does.

Hmm. If that's the case that would be interesting for a new body, even if it's an odd 1/16 size

Just ordered a red one. I'd been waffling on a B-1 for a while now, and having one with a truck body and no leaf springs is all it took to put me over the edge.

Forgot to mention use code RC18off at Gearbest and itíll save a few dollars. Itís a 1:16 based off that drivetrain of the others.

I was strong enough not to get one of the trucks, but I think I'm going to get weak...

Oh, I didn't realize its the same price. I'm not normally interested in 1/16, but at that price it's worth it even for just the body and Scale items.

You guys really hate my paypal account, couldn't resist, ordered a yellow rtr and a red kit version that I assume is going to make a great home for an mrc pro rollers drivetrain I've had sitting for quite a few years

If the body width is the same as the WPL B1 itíll be around +/-130to134mm. Those Losi Mini axles are around 140mm if my notes are correct.

It'll just look like it's a yota on 1 tons, no problem

Thereís a 1/18 Wraith clone out there that Iím waiting for parts to possibly be released on that may be more scale. But the 1ton axles would be a fun looking rig, too.

I looked at the kit version but it was the same price as the RTR. I'm not building it myself if it's the same price!

Couldnít resist it either, ordered a red kit. I thought building it will keep me busy, and I might be able to perhaps upgrade some things.
Also ordered a 10A ESC, so if I do not like the supplied Tx, I can use my own one as it will probably have an ESC with integrated Rx. Could not find much info on it.
Does anybody know what size battery it will take?

I have to measure my Mini Gelande 2 axles. I think with hex extensions the mini yota 2's would look and fit great.
