I will put it on the line ...


Ae CORR truck has to be a nitro 1/8..
why ?
Its the best way for Ae to capture more market share of Nitro racing across the country...

They already have their share of the truggy & buggy class`s .

so


If Ae is to keep growing , a new class would be the best way to develop more Ae drivers & grow bigger...

Well it wouldn't be hard to mistake it for a T4...really the only big difference between a T4 and a B4 is the chassis tub and the control arms, which on a scale stadium truck would be the first things to get redesigned

It appeared to be the same size as the Traxxas CORR Truck..
If you think about it a Nitro 1/8 scale CORR Truck does not make much sense business wise..1/10 electric is much more affordable, much more user friendly for first time RC'ers (that's who their primary focus is on). I do think that a CORR Truggy would be cool and fun to race..

I think he means a truggy-based CORR truck, kinda like a Slayer

Although, an R/C version of the Herbst Truggy would be just as sweet

I'm still not aware that CORR raced any sort of "truggy" based class.
Maybe it was a confusion of terms on his part, maybe confusing 4wd with the use of the RC word Truggy.
And that Herbst so-called truck you pictured is what they run in Baja1000 type events, whereas when they run in CORR races they run full fendered trucks similiar to what the other boys do.

I guess I should have clarified it a bit more..what I was saying is it would be cool to race a full truck bodied 1/8th scale..I do know what a Truggy is..duh..Rick..I dont really wish to get anyone in..So I will just say the Greater Los Angeles area..oh and Adam Drake was not seen at the same track testing a new Truggy for Losi either..

Yeah, I know the "Land Shark" Truggy is an endurance racer, first of it's kind as far as I know. I'm just saying, as an R/C truck...

what I'm saying is that while it seems I regularly see all sorts of spy shots about new automobiles coming out I can't remember ever seeing one of a new RC before its release. so unless you're camping out in the maytag box next to the plant I seriously doubt you saw what you thought you saw then again, much as police find out at crime scenes people usually are terrible witnesses because they have so many versions of what they think they saw
