This is the all the stats I could find while truggy shopping. I did the conversions on my iPhone and thought it might help some people out. Some numbers are rounded off and sometimes I averaged numbers. My sources were Overdrive RC, Absolute Hobbies, and Xray's site.

I know the SG is supposed to come out and I've "heard" about 1 at the beginning of next year. But was just a rumor. (Swore I wouldn't say a word, and I keep my word) We'll see. I'm happy with my AE and might just buy the kit but I'm gonna be patient and see what happens.

the odonnell truggy is not the same truck with just hop-ups.. it is based off the sg buggy plateform... so there is many many changes to it.. compare the original z01b to the sg.. you will see all the changes we have made..

I can't wait to see it. I finally quit pestering the Z01T thread. I read the whole thing thru the other day and saw where I had asked like 4-5 times. I didn't even realize it. I like AE but I'm always open to new things!

How do the Length and Width affect these in any experienced person's opinion? I would assume longer would be more stable but not turn as sharp. I assume width is the same. Wider = more stable but don't turn as sharp. I've driven lighter trucks than mine and I really liked the light weight just not sure how the Length and Width would fit in...

Also... Anyone got a weight on the OD.? I haven't found it yet. Not the new one the one for my chart.

Is the team associated really that heavy? Or is that weight including something that the other truggy's are not? Don't understand why it wouldn't weigh more in line with the other ones.

I pulled those weights right off Absolute's site and everywhere else I've looked shows the same. I weighed my RTR the other day race ready and it was 10.25lbs. but the RTR has a heavier chassis and some stamped aluminum parts.... Also... my old fish scales may be off a little.
