Default Petition for AE to build a 4wd buggy

I found this on rc10b4.com. I didnt know you could do this but there is a petition for AE to build a electric 4wd buggy to compete with team losi, they probably are allready in the process but who knows. If you want to sign the petition here is the web page www.Petitiononline.com/ae4wd/petition.html check out signature 48

you think they would make a 4wd but the class may not be strong enough to make the car.

what do the ae factory guys run in 4wd class at big races the tc3-0 or durango? maby ae should import or help produce the car.

4wd electric? Bah .. I won't sign that, just because electric buggies suck haha, now if it were a 4wd Nitro 1/8 scale ... I'd be right in there!

... except for that fact that I don't think AE would be able to design a car that holds up for an entire 5 minutes haha

What is the TC3-O and where can I find pictures/information on it?

Thanks

I dont think Associated would jump on the bandwagon of a dead class. Sure, a lot of people say they would buy the car, but how many of you really would? If you really craved a 4wd buggy, you'd own the XXX4 or Durango or something and make the class so it isn't dead, then Associated might build a car to compete in a full class.

I own a xx4 and I love it. The xxx4(i Dont own that one) is even better. I really wonder if AE would make 100 percent strickly 4wd buggy...If or when they do I would buy it just to compare between the buggies that I current own.

P.s. I signed!

Default news from AE

Re: AE fans petitioned for Team Associated 4WD buggy!
Nice...

I'll bring this to the attention of Mr. Lett. One of the biggest things is that, even though all those people WANT a 4WD AE vehicle, will they all BUY that 4WD vehicle?!?!?! Some will, but not all.

But, this is encouraging that there are over 200 that are interested....thanks!
