Looks to be a good truck, I've had good luck with my XXX-T. Now they have a version that comes with a brushless system. That'd be ideal for bashing, almost no maintainance...

i got a chance to check it out in the LHS before it closed. Looked like a pretty good truck. Only thing I wish it did have but may be better for a basher that it doesn't is the ball diff. But for what I saw, it looked pretty good. I would have no problem running it.

Could you tell if it's a XXX-T duplicate, or is it something completely new?

My buddy bought one. He is sorry he did. Some parts are Losi some are'nt. Part availability was bad. I would either go for a more mainstream brand.

Go Losi first(get the brushless RTR if available), Associated second, and if money is an issue, go Duratrax, but don't buy that Raven thing.
