The Rtr's are very close to being ready. The buggy is being prepped
for shipping and getting the packing details worked out. THe truggy
will come a bit later but the estimated release for the RTR buggy will
mid may. We will have some photos and limited details posted up
tonight for you guys.

THis will really be one of the better RTR as it uses our evo platform,
same gears, plastics, cvd's(bones in center), and can be upgraded into
a evo(pro version).

It will come with metal gear servos, and a Futaba radio, Redline 3
port w/ pullstart, and ready to go

Stay tuned for pictures...

I wanna see some more of the truck too.

I would be interested in the Pro version of the truck as I want to pick my own engine.

also on the rear of the car, i dont know what they're called on truggies but the things that would be hubs, at the end of the a-arm where the hexes are, I see they are plastic, any plans to beef those up to aluminum?

but I wanna know, I am in Connecticut, USA, how long till we parts support at local stores this far?

Aluminum rear hubs are option parts and are not included with the kits.

This is pretty much how the truck comes...the shocks are in a separate bag. I actually prefer the plastic rear uprights over the aluminum.


There more than likely will be a "Team" version out later on with all the option parts on it.

Right now...it will sell for well under $500.00 and is a more than capable truck as is now.

To anyone in the know what is the street price going to be on the rtr buggy?

That thing looks pretty sharp for a rtr.

I wouldn't mind grabbing one just for a basher......

are those 23mm or 17mm hexes?

the kit does look REAL nice and if its cheaper than the mugen mbx5t prospec, than you have my money

what I wanan know is are they big bore shocks or normal shocks?


and I hope local stores will end up carrying OCm around me, nothing like breaking an a-arm running to the store and picking one up and being back on the track within minutes.

also last question for the day, does the kit come with wheels/tires and a body?

kit will come with body, and rims......


street price on the rtr will be under $400 for the truggy and the buggy....

Keep in mind this is just a approx number at this point. Shops can sale for the price they feel good with but I bet $400 is a good point for the truck, little less on the buggy($385)

thanks guys!

well since the kit and the rtr are the same expcept for engien and radio, does that mean the kit is cheaper?

I havent been hearing if the kit has any extra parts over the rtr, just no engine and no radio.

also I asked this before but it was a edit so it might have not been seen,

the Kaos does it have big bore shocks?

and what hobby shops are gonna be carrying the car first? I see amainhobbies has buggy parts, buthow long till we see the truck (non rtr) and parts on the market in the states?
