I been running mine since the RC Pro Series Final, all I can say is WOW. It is absolutely amazing. It does everything you want it to do and is very stable.

It's tough as a nail too. You won't be disappointed with it at all.

nitroal you must be talking about Tony Bacon?

I have a hard time buying the Ztruggy, I am very happy with my AE rides just cant think I could be any faster with anything else then again thats what I thought when I ditched my 8ight after 1.5 years to go with the RC8 and out of the box I was .3-.5 secs faster eash lap.

yes i am. with his new sponsorship, he will be switching. since i have been leaning on him hard for support, i feel it would be in my best interest to keep running the same stuff as him. plus, he is my "body paint" sponsor ! lol. i think if it handles as good as the buggy, it won't be much of a change from the rc8t.

Hey Al, I don't want to discourage from buying the ZO1T (I have the ZO1B and love it), but it looks like your running good with your RC8T, your sitting fourth after round one in the winter series. You know Tony will help you no matter what you are running, he offered welcomed unsolicited help to me and Frank The Tank AKA BullJava, this summer with our Losi 8ights and he already promised help on my Z once he gets his dialed.
I would for sure take a serious look at the ZT when your other buggy is worn but I know you just got your AE this fall and I hate to see someone drop that kind of cash when your running as well as you are. Just my 2 cents.

DAM AKA GBU

wow looks like alot of guys from iowa are gonna be runnin odonnell cars this summer im holding out for the truck and the motor we have an indoor track here in iowa but i hate running nitro indoors so just gonna sit until spring. everybody ive talked to and the forums ive read on the net, nobody has anything negative to say about the buggy. i guess long waits and no hype can pay off in the long run. the truck looks like it has a few small updates compared to the buggy. i know who tony bacon is congrats on the odonnell sponsership. cam didnt try to get ya to run the caster?LOL

Although I am still waiting on my Truggy, I do have the buggy dialed for our tight indoor track. If anyone wants to try my setup, let me know your email address and I will send over a setup sheet. I watched the Truggy in Texas, it was amazing! The track was challenging, fast, loose, big jumps, and Holes. The truck stayed flat everywhere! What else can you say in regards to the quality of the O'Donnell Cars? They are first class, and you will be seeing a lot of guys here in the midwest making the switch. I am working on a setup guide that I will be passing on to Steve. If he likes what he see's, I will make it available on this forum and others for people to use to fine tune their rigs. Talk to you soon.

The trucks were good at the final's. We had 4 of them in the A Mains at the RC Pro Series Final's.

Everybody that was there, knows how rough that track was, and slipper in some spots.

It is an awesome truck.

Trust me, I am impatient, and very excited to get this truck as well. From what I hear Testing is going good and they will be out soon, so hold off, it will be worth the wait. Im having a sticker made for mine that say's, "Told you so....." LOL
