If I were considering getting a truck, should I wait until the Matt Francis version comes out?

Yeah, you should. It will only be about 30 or 40 bucks more, and you get everything! Plus, you don't get just plain old blue, you get red! Wheels and everything!

Well, is it a good buggy to start offroad with? Although, I may not get one because the track might not have a 4wd class

XXX-T, not so old then!

I think it would be cool for AE to make an off-road 4WD buggy based on the TC3...The losi would get it's butt kicked, the TC3 is so easy to work on...BUT the XX4 does look like a good car...Wonder if they will make a XXX4 based on the XXX-s?

Yea, a while back there was talk, I heard about one being made off the Tc3. A while back on HPI a guy converted a Tc3 to a buggy, I think he said RCCA will do a feature on it like in next months mag...DUnno

why do you say the losi would be beaten by a tc3 offroad????the xx4, is very balanced and easy to drive...i do not think the tc3 would convert well, that is why it has not been done....you would break a ton of shafts....from the car flexing,
