Nice. That almost makes this a slam dunk for me!

Just from what I see in the pictures it has some obvious designing queue's from the buggy.

Seeing this sct come out got me thinking. I knew just from reading other threads that specific rc's are popular depending on area. I wonder what manufactures do to determine which style rc they'll invest in 1st/next? Obv Serpent feels that the 2wd sct was more popular than a 4x4 version. In my area 4x4 is more popular and the wheeler class is very hit and miss.

But reading and looking around the wheeler class is big at other tracks. I mean just look at all the new 4wd rc's that have come out or are coming, via a newer updated model or ground up. Can't wait to see what's next.

Popularity is one thing, ease of production is another. Since this truck will share many parts with the buggy, it is easier to put into production. 4wd platforms typically require all new design and component development from 2wd.

Might be, but they look functional. Should make the truck jump really nice. Could paint them too.

Curious to see this in action. While it may stabilize in the air, seems like more resistance to me for the dreaded parachute.

It should actually decrease the parachute effect as it will significantly lesson the amount of air that gets up into the body. Besides, we don't go fast enough in stock class to worry about the parachute effect. And if you do, just scrub like Bubba!

I had them on my Tekno 4wd S.C. and it was a significant reduction in the parachuting. And it kept the chassis cleaner too, haha
