SuperMaxxRich - Oh I know that, I've driven the big trucks before. It's just now there's one with the right brand name on it

MB - Credit where it's due! The vast majority of hobbyists in this industry take for granted the amount of work it takes to put this stuff together. I still don't even know the half of it. It kills me to see keyboard warriors tearing apart someone's best efforts, when all they've ever seen are two-dimensional pictures of it, and especially before it reaches production.

hay, i have seen the 8t in person close up, and running on the track. I already am getting ready to sell off one of my CRT's before this hits, because i want to get a decent price for it. The other truggy, i might just keep it.

I dout it, that would be like Ofna coming out with a truggy conversion for their CR buggy. It probably wont happen, but I could be wrong.

A-men Arron - So many people judge before they see it. If they are grounded in firm engineering or markeing backgrounds then you see it. They make sense and back up their reasoning. Otherwise their inputs are barely credible and shallow at best. "Man I wouldn't run a car with plastic shock towers." Funny. We have sold a bunch of LSTs and I haven't seen one broken shock tower yet.
Great plastics on the EIGHT BTW.

jimball, the problem is the money for the few parts vs the entire kit. Keep in mind the conversion would need front and rear center drivershafts, chassis, shock towers, front shocks, front and rear arms, upper arms, possibly wheel hubs, wheels, body and it looks like a different engine mount in there, hard to be sure? Also a spur gear, or different ring and pinion gears(tranny internals).


The truck looks awesome though!

I hope my MBX5T Prospec can keep up?

...Jim

I agree, I think the chassis is awesome, but the rear ring is way too close to the body - it need lifting a little...

I think it looks better with the wing lower. Cosmetics are always hit-and-miss.

Who cares what it looks like? As long as it's fast

Agreed, but the wing would work better in 'cleaner' air....

I think I'll get one just to muck around with!!
