A Nitro powered 1/8 scale Corr`s truck from Ae is a ride I will buy & race with all next year...

Id say based on Rick's post in the nitro off road thread that may be what it is going to be. Just reading between the lines though, i dont know squat

I'm guessing an eighth scale nitro too, based on "SC8" = Short Course 8th scale? Do I get a prize?

It's going to be a 1/8 scale gas powered pro-4 style truck.

The banner is indeed labeled as "SC8", which leads me to believe it stands for "Short Course 8". So sounds like a 1/8 scale truck to me........


Stitchy I already guessed that one and got ridiculed for it......

AE is like Ferrari or Porsche; they make specialty vehicles and are heavily involved in racing . Traxxas is more like Toyota: a huge popular company that makes more mainstream vehicles and is highly profitable. Saying one is better than the other or more porfitable than the other is not really a fair comparison. It is unfair to compare the two as they are making products for different markets.

The one thing that is funny about the whole CORR thing? Everyone complains when a racing company like AE spends low six figures supporting a racing team to promote and create newer and better products. "Why should we pay for these guys to race instead of the company lowering prices" is the typical complaint.

Then another company goes out and spends millions of dollars supporting a full CORR racing operation and nobody gives a **it.
best post in this entire mess of a thread. 2 different things. I have a Stampede for off-road fun, a TC4 for on-road bashing/drifting, and currently building a Revo (didn't it win something like 6 championships?) that is brushless.

Losi is in a strange limbo where it wants to make money but wants to be a respected racer. Traxxas makes a great product I think and they sell a crap ton of vehicles. Just wait until they make a 4wd buggy.

If you want to see a great spec class race watch NASCAR would be a good example of this in real life. Everyone runs the same thing and it comes down to driver skill. What people who run AE and need to drop loads of money into a 1/10 car are just making up for their lack of skill in my eyes. Look what happened to 1/12 on-road, I don't recall a 1/12 scale Traxxas vehicle that killed it for anyone and the 4tec didn't kill on-road 1/10. The community and namely RACERS killed it.

They get frustrated, don't want to spend the extra $100 to get something they can actually race and never come back.

Race attendance suffers as a result to which Traxxes ups the ante with yet another toy that everyone goes nuts for because it looks like something they saw on TV.

The classes that Traxxas does not make vehicles for are thriving - (1/8 scale and 4wd buggies).

On second thought, I hope Traxxas never does make a 4wd buggy or anything 1/8 scale!
ok, so me RACING my rustler and pede, is killing the sport that ive been racing in for 9 years? i work at a shop, and ppl WANT traxxas "junk" so im pretty sure ur WRONG

At their rate or product release it's gonna be a year so why sweat it, or even talk about it?

The AE truck was not intended to be a copy of the Slash or Slayer. Development of these was apparently happening simultaneously so you are going to see two differing visions of what a R/C CORR truck should look like and how it should perform. Whether or not they run together is up to the racers and organizers.
