Are any of you crawlers?
While a 2.2 rig would have been our first choice, this rig is being received well in the crawler community.
The Super class has lost most of it's attraction do to stagnant development, lack of support from manufactures, and a lack of terrain for many that can challenge a Supers crawling abilities.
With this rig as well as the Yokomo 1/18 crawler, the Duratrax 1/18th crawler and a rumored 1/18 release coming from Kyosho, we could be seeing the second competition class many have been looking for!
Also, many fail to remember that the 2.2 class that 99% of crawlers now participate in was based on the lowly 1/18 scale
This new release uses 12mm hexes which means all 2.2 tires and wheels will work on it, it comes w/ a Spektrum radio, it comes w/ tires designed after the 2.2 Losi Claws which have been dominant this last year, and it's very affordable! With some minor tweaks, it could be stretched into a 2.2 fairly easy! Crawlers are notorious for taking pieces and parts from difference rigs and manufactures to produce their own creations! This rig just adds parts for us to use!
Plus Losi will sell a ton of the axles and tires which are 1.9s to the scale guys! They favor the 1.9s as they more scale in size and appearance.
IMO, this release is a winner for crawling and if it sells well, I would guess a 2.2 will soon follow.
