Its kinda a combo of a bunch of cars. 3 Racing has some nice touring cars and their hop up parts have been nice over the years so if the buggy is priced right I would try one. Getting 3 Racing stuff is normally not too hard. I think the places in the States that carry the 3 Racing touring stuff will also carry the new buggy as well. If thats the case I will look into one of these cars.

I'd like to start racing again. 2wd buggy seems to be where its at. It seems like anyone who makes some kind of competition car now makes a competition 2wd buggy. The low price of this car is what's really attracting me. I'd love to get a Tamiya 201XR, but if I can't follow through on racing I wouldn't feel as bad. I'd probably feel less paranoid going bashing too.

The buggy looks to be available for pre-order at RCMart for $180. Should ship mid October, but "subject to change". Wouldn't mind buying one of these just to see how good it is for that price. I posted CAD pics on here that I found about a year ago. Figured someone would have one by now.

RC Driver review of the buggy. Less than a month ago. Says the buggy should be out soon.

3Racing had the buggy listed for $160 on their FB page. I'm hoping that's suggested retail because that means the actual price might be in the $100-$120 range.

For $160 the Atomik VMR2 looks like a better buy (titanium turnbuckles in the box!)

I'd like to see a competitive budget priced 4wd buggy.

I"m getting very interested in this buggy now. After messing around with my Sakura Zero S and XI Sport, I'm confident this will be a great bang for your buck.

i am about to order one myself such a great design and comes with both options of mid and rear motor, this is cheaper than getting a c4.2 conversion for my b4.2 lol

I'd be a little concerned about PFTE coated shock bodies. AE and Academy both used to do that and the coating would wear through in a few races, leaving the owner with bare aluminum shock bores and black molasses for shock oil.

the design of the shocks looks to be based of the Durango's. I would get theirs or get some nice tresreys and call it a day.

It's costing a little more than I expected but the cheapest I've seen it has been @ RC Mart for $136.
