I'm really not sure about the other question, but I can theorize what will happen with the Tamiya truggy looking thing. It may end up popular with bashers, but will likely have the same connotation as the Hellfire truggy HPI tried to make. Racers didn't like it, and bashers won't build it. You can pick up a pro kit(or SS in HPI terms) for under $300...that means they're having trouble GIVING them away...

They are already at A-Main and B-Main. I raced with Billy at Leisure Hours www.leisurehoursraceway.com last weekend and the buggy looked very good. He took the A with it but I think the jury is still out on the buggy...
