This is one of the few new buggies to come out in a long time with innovate new features, instead of the typical micro changes that barely mean anything. So cool.

I think they’re same length. Bodies are new because they are no longer completely threaded

Absolutely! I don't even race 4WD and my last Schumacher was a red pan Cougar2 Team back in the early 90s, but I am really tempted...
