Esp. given todays economy! Its a tough market. Rick has to keep a job folks, we can't risk him losing his job for the sake of a few details which will likly be revealed sooner or later.

Rick, Id imagine, a person in your position gets all giddy about certain things which you know will impact the industry. I've met several folks directly tied in the industry and its the same thing. Knowing that you have a product that will get a lot of attention. Now I know how people in the auto industry or hell ANY industry trying to get ahead must feel.

I'll be waiting attentively!

On a side note, IF this is a simiar truck to the CORR style racing, can AE look into bringing back the Toyota Baja Truck body they made BITD for the orig. RC10T.

I wonder if it's going to be gas or electric? Both would be awesome!

That's JUST that shootout, otherwise the Pro2 and Pro4 trucks run in seperate races since the 2WDs aren't competitive with the 4WDs.

That'd be crazy fast like gear the electric for low end speed and torque them vice versa for nitro engine. But that'd cost and weigh a ton and I'd make it revered nitro for low end torque and electric for speed runs. Except I dont think this'd be the best idea.
