Hongnor Jammin X1 CRT - 05Q3
Mugen MBX5T - 06Q3
Hot Bodies LSP - 04Q4?
Hot Bodies LSP2 - ????
Kyosho ST-R - 06Q2
Kyosho ST-RR - 07Q3
Hobao Hyper ST Pro - 07Q2
GS Racing XUT - 08Q2
Kyosho Inferno ST - ????
Ofna Blazer - ????
Tazer - ????

Feel free to include any other older truggies you guys think of.
Thanks.

The mugenb msr truggy. It was just a buggy with huge offset hubs and mt wheels and tires. ahh the good ol' days
The Hot Bodies LSP was the first actual truggy. Then the Jammin x1crt.
Looks like everyone copied Hot Bodies when it came to truggy design
I forgot what year the LSP came out. Probably about 5 years ago about.

the lsp was the first production long chassis truggy, the OFNA monster pirate is the original truggy back in 96or 97.
lsp came out in late 04/early 05
The TTR came out right around the same time
The GS truggy had been out for a year but was updated with a longer chassis around the end of the year
then came the jammin mid-late 05
The original kyosho ST-r came out in april 06(I have one from the very first shipment)
The losi came out a month later at the most
in the fall the mbx-5t came out
then the following spring the ho boa came out

St-RR was released middle of late 2007. Sometime between July and September!

J-Dub -

that's quite a bit different dates than Haulinbass gave for the Losi 8T and LSP (almost 1yr difference for both). Are you talking about the LSP2?

The losi came out after the mugen(quite a bit after) so HaulinBass is wrong there, and J-DUB's date for the mugen sounds accurate. I think Haulin is confusing the mugen and the losi. The mugen was the one that came right after the first K car.

Don't forget the "Tazer" that was handcrafted by Steve
(socal). It was a special truggy to own a few year back.

J-DUB - was it the LSP or LSP2 that came out late 05?

Momo5 - when did the Kyosho and Ofna come out?

rageworks - when did the Tazer come out? Was it based on a certain make/model that Steve modified?

Thanks.

JSR, the Tazer was a custom truggy chassis, made by Steve,
that used mostly Ofna and Kingz Heads parts.
Somewhat like the BCE chassis conversions that Bill
makes now. I think the Tazer was out in late '05 or
early '06. Saddly, the rumor is that Steve died in '07.
But I'm not sure.

I cant remember exactly when the Inferno ST came out. It was before I got out of the hobby long ago, so I'm guessing it was somewhere around 1992-93. The Ofna Blazer I'm not sure about either, but I think it came out right after the ST.

I looked on the net a bit for some pics of an Inferno ST, and these are the only ones I could find.
