If that is supposed to compete with the CRT .5 I dont think Jammin drivers will have much to worry about. Look at how high the body on that thing is mounted, the tiny wheel nuts, and the ridiculous offset of the wheels. Plus you would never see a Muggy bein competetive with a real truggy, this will probably just continue the trend.

im thinkin itll be a 1/12...u can kinda tell by the size of the fuel line compared to the truck... it cant be a 1/16...looks too big...and imo those look like 1/2" offset...not exactly rediculous.

so this Lil Mug is hopefully using full size servos so we don't have to go through the CRT .5 fiasco again. It was cool that Jammin used an extended chassis for the RTR so full servos could be utilized. I hope Losi is along the same design. I hate buying special servos. I have enough trouble with them the way they are now. LOL.

The truck in the background is definately 1/12 size. You can tell it is not a full size muggy. The truck in the foreground looks to be about 1/2 its size. I looked at the size of the fuel line and wheelbase...its obvious.

I own an 8T and just purchased a CRT .5 w/ extended chassis. I cant wait to get this thing up and running. I hope the guys at my local track pick up on this new class!

Your wrong ade the truck in the background is the full size version you can tell by the wing and the number 1 on it check losis site youll see . As for the forground one I cant say the camera closeup really distorts the size difference.

actually its not, look at the wheels and the offset, look at the wheel nuts, look at the front bumper. I can tell you 100% those are 1/10th wheels on the background truck. besides the wing is to high.
And the biggest thing is look at the damned weeping tile people, ive never seen half burried weeping tile come over halfway up on a truggy.

it is not a full sized muggy

Look here. Exact same pic. And this one came from the multimedia section under the Muggy on Losi's website. I'm thinking the one in the background is the fullsize Muggy. That's why the one in the forground has "LiL Muggy" on the body. It's a little Muggy. Simple as that.

It's good to see Losi getting this kind of attention to it's products. Unfortunately I think this is what Horizon wants too. LOL.
