Interesting, it is 1/10 scale. I guess they want to be different. I'd rather have seen an 1/8 scale personally.

No because you can't beat the simplicity of the Slash and the Kyosho is nitro not electric. I am just not sure why they decided on this format.

i kinda wish everyone did 1/10 scale 4wd nitro trucks, it would be easier to race on 1/8 scale tracks 4 new racers who like nitro racing. 1/10 offroad has died down in my area because of performance of 2wd on a 1/8 scale track, it takes alot of skill to drive 2wd trucks, i think it would be a better beginner class 4 nitro, they drive simular 2 1/8 scale rides IMO

If it is nitro I hope it is at least 4wd. A company will make a E-conversion for it sooner or later.

Destined to be a basher. Thats too bad. Shoulda been 10th electric or 1/8 nitro. That woulda helped corr racing establish a class. Now it is just more confusing.

yea it is 1/10, and it is nitro, and 4wd, but can you really classify the slash as a true 1/10 truck? it is huge, more 1/8, maybe it is 1/9 scale, lol, either way, i dont think the DRT will get near as much attention as the slash!

Looks like competition for the Traxxas Slayer. Now we have to wait to see if AE makes a nitro or electric version.
