The street price (internet price) will be $550. Its a 1/8th scale but I think its considered a monster truck similar to hpi's hellfire and with a few adjustments it can run in the truggy class.

yea, i am sure this IS a truggy. i think they only call it a muggy because maybe they raised the car up a little bit? just lower it, and it will probably be considered a "truggy" instead of a "muggy"

They call it a muggy cause they combined a monster truck and a buggy hence muggy. its the same as a truggy so dont worry.

they probably call it a muggy cause that is what they named it kind of like how their 1/8th buggy is called the 8ight. Just an idea. They already have a racing monster truck in the LST2, I doubt they would release a truck that could not compete in the 1/8st class with out modifications done for compliance.

That center diff and throttle/brake assembly look Identical to the Sportwerks Mayhem

It's called a Muggy because it's Monster truck based not buggy based.

If I wanted a Losi Truggy I would wait for the 8ight Truggy to come out.

Its due in September so we will know how it performs soon after its release. I would think since its a losi it will perform fairly well. If they were going to release a truggy, I would think that they make it the best possible way they could the first time and not make 2 truggies.
