I agree. Traxxas brought me into the RC world and I thank them. Hate that I wasted $350 on getting started out with a slash and hop up parts but it was fun to bash around the yard with. Then i took it to a nitro park and got ran of the road. Poor 2wd slash lol but after seeing the speed of the brushless and nitro cars quickly brought me in. Back on the topic though, i agree they are aimed at the basher, short course, and beginner crowds. I just hate that they bring in people with their 15 page spread in each RC mag. Man that bothers me.

Technically this is a 1/8th and from the pics you can do this easily whithout any harm or cost but a front and rear bumper. You will need a wing mout any should work so not much to do this either. Well further or do here are some pics. Please no bad mouth this is prototype and i am making it better but like i said this is one of the first ones ever.


















PLEASE EXCUSE THE DIRT AND OIL AND WHAT NOT LOL ITS A SLASH
BTW the only dead give away to this is the rpm arms lol and shocks.

Now THAT is what an 1/8 E-Buggy should be. I don't know about anyone else, but I'd much rather have one of these accidentally flying at me than any other 1/8 E-thingy, this probably handles better too.

i hope traxxas never builds an 1/8 scale. they would ruin it with some rtr crap with a plastic drivetrain but everybody would be running them because they have great customer service.
