LOL. Yeah, I think so. It was good for bashing. Each and everytime I put it on the track it would break a stub axle. It would never break while bashing though. My friend had a Savage at the same time, and it would break each and every time we were bashing. But his would never break or fail on the race track. LOL. They were complete opposites. But I kept bashing the Revo for another 8 months and then quit all together.

OK, lets see here.........not sure who all knows what but I can safely say that the LiL Muggy in the pic is nothing more than a one off!! It was done by one of the guys down at RC Driver w/ a mix of a MLST and a Sportwerks Chaos. The body is a Parma xciter painted by Dan Wyatt (explains the Wyatt on the windshield!), all the stickers were also custom; inculding the 1/2 which was done as nothing more than to mock the #1 found on the full size muggy!!
Info was obtained NOT from me but from a VERY reliable source on another site, just thought I would share as this seems to be getting quite abit of attention here!!

And also for the records, the Muggy in the background IS a 1/8 Losi Muggy; it too is an editors ride!!

I don't doubt an update to the 8, Ive seen the new front hub carriers the factory drivers have been using, so im guessing its juts small stuff like that.

Very interesting though!

It actually says that there will be updated parts for the 8ight and it says:
"however at this point a new chassis design/layout seems unlikey."

I don't know if I believe that or not though. I think there's a good possibility that the new model could be a brushless 8ight.

AE has been spotted testing a brushless RC8 and they're usually really late to the party so my guess is that Losi has probably been working on one for a while now.

Who else is going to laugh if it's just another re-worked mini?

I was hoping for a 1/12 scale truggy. I hope the Bashers are going be happy with it or it will not sell.
