Where can I find some more information on this car? Will it be released in time for this upcoming season?

I am in the market for a car, and I like the idea of buying a car where all my tools still work with it

If AE is simply throwing a sticker on a TTR car, it should have been out already. But it's not...

Well, since TTR now owns Associated then you go right on ahead and buy that AE 1/8th scale buggy even though odds are it will be designed by the same guys who manufactured the eb-4 series.

True, there is no such thing as a truly competitive 1/8th scale car for less than $1200 total. $500 chassis, $300 engine, $60 pipe, $180 servos, plus your transmitter, and tires. Damn its fun though!

Honestly....if you want to get into any sort of FULL ON RACING, you're gonna have to be willing to spend in the ballpark of 900+

1/10the electric offroad is cheap though! 1/10th onroad on the other hand... You can setup a competive 2wd offroad buggy/truck for less than $400 very easily (not including batteries, charger, or trans/rx that is, oh damn wait thats another $350, lol).
