We'll see. Still shows it hasnt shipped yet. Hope it ships tomorrow probable still a couple weeks out once it ships. Been watching some youtube vids. Looks pretty good. Not a lot of sidewall on the tires to form around rocks but I think it'll be ok still.

Have to have them when you have 8 grandkids and only 3 of them have crawlers so far. May need to order a dozen of them.

I actually just got one of these in to do a review on and will post some pics up.

A few initial thoughts:

Dimensions are very similar to the SCX10 Dingo. I need to dig out my old dingo body and see how close exactly.

The chassis is full plastic (really hoped it would have been metal but might be a quick swap away). Very flexible in all axis.

Set up with a 3 link front and rear, again it looks like the SCX10 suspension will bolt right up.

The Remote (while cheap) is pretty solid. Not pleased about the ESC/RX combo though. Makes going to BL later on a bit of a pain.

The beadlocks are real! And they are actually easier to assemble/disassemble than most of the other ones I have used in the past.

Glad to hear about the beadlocks. I did see a review against a scx10 and it looked about an inch and a half shorter but that's ok,it'll help with not getting high centered. Really curious about how the shocks work also.
