It's been so long, it might as well be.

Aw man... I still drive the original RC8Te! The best eTruggy Associated has ever released!!!1! (from 2009 until it looks like April 2016)

More than 5 years - I guess that's a good run.

6 years later and they have a new truggy, wow that took a long time. It looks almost exactly like a Mugen. I like the easy access diffs from the Team Durango DEX8T / Arrma Truggy. I'm sure all of the other manufacturers will be going with that style diff case for their next model.

Why is the chassis so wide: to hold the extra parts needed by the nitro version? If the radio box was at the back you could trim at least 2cm from each side. (Guess I've spent too much time staring at ET48.3's )

Mugen is wide because it is nitro based so the associated copy is also...
