Good Morning Rick,

By chance do you have an ETA for an announcement?

Like you said... I've had wood for true stadium truck racing since the days at the L.A. Coliseum and the prospect of not having to deal with thunder tech is the greatest thing since the orginal RC10T. I'm close to purchasing the slash but will hold out for the AE offering (being the loyal AE fan since the stealth transsmission upgrade package)

The real CORR truck`s run 2w & 4w together....

Don`t see why a T-5 & a Slash could`nt run together ...
Its about fun remember ?

That info is distributed on a "need to know" basis which means they won't tell me. I'll check this thread again later after I take the bad boy for a spin out back.

Rick,

So you can confirm this is not a crawler but can you also confirm its not an 18th scale..........

* Crossing fingers that its not 1/18 scale *

As for 4wd versus 2wd, could care less either way honestly. But I can see guys gravitating towards it for 4wd, but the price probably would be up there then.

He's already driving one...sheesh...

And 4WD is for people with no sense of throttle control

Agreed becuse if it was a crawler then that would totally defeat the pupose of it being a CORR truck.

1/18th scale

1/10th scale

Unfortunately in my experience every time i hear 'I can not confirm or deny' as an answer to a question, it generally translates into a 'yes'.

YUP!!!! i gotta a bad feeling... i think they saw the demand for the slash and instead of putting together a whole new designed truck they were like "hey we could always make a new shell for our 18t we will call it the 18dt its gonna be sweet!" i sure hope not....

Agreed. For me at least, it would be a letdown.

I haven't been a fan of stadium trucks, but have owned now about 8 at different times, 5 being T4s. The looks never grew on me. the CORR trucks though, I do like.

Hopefully we here something soon, either way, so we know whats coming down the pipe.
