Default Nitro buggy silenced!!!! (new Caster car...)

Thread on "Electric Offroad" forum:
New Factory Built Electric 1/8 !!!

Coming soon.

Info and pictures will be posted when I get the ok from Caster Racing.

They are producing an electric 1/8 buggy and truggy in both RTR and "Pro Race" versions. Details on the RTR components are not available at this time. The Pro kit will be released first while the RTR is being finished.

We will have more information at www.casterracingusa.com soon, and will have a sign up list for those interested in purchasing when the first shipments come in.

Prices are yet to be determined, but expect them to be similar to the current Caster nitro cars. The nitro ZX-1R pro kit sells for around $400 through you local hobby store, and $425 direct from CasterUSA.

So we have a very good quality car at a good price that needs no additional converison work or parts.

More options and parts will be coming from Caster. This is only the beginning.

Stay tuned....

Its not going to kill the nitros, but it might help the hobby grow since electrics especally brushless are alot easier to maintain and run then nitro.
