Looks great...

Any idea what esc/motor will be included with the RTR?

Any idea of estimated street prices for both the Pro and the RTR?

hakmazter , for someone representing Caster I would expect a bit of professionalism . "OH Shit" for a thread title is oh................................ I don`t know , not what I`d expect from a somewhat new company that is trying to make a name for themselves . Is this type of behavior that Caster likes to put out ?. Caster looks like they might have some descent stuff but this from someone that represent Caster will not help sales .

I have seen a lot worse on here. A lot worse. I got blindsided by it late last night and was really excited. If that means that you won't buy our products, that is fine by me. I am sure that others will look past it and realize not that it is just another buggy, but a true revolution of this industry that will be equal to or greater than the CORR. This is a very big announcement. Very big. If it was someone like Mugen or Traxxas or Losi, I am sure that everyone would be as excited or more.

I am proud to say that a few guys from Iowa have just cemented themselves into the history books by being the first once again, Caster Racing is a leader in the R/C community, on the forefront of technology, and we are only bringing more to the table.

Moderators, if you want to change the title, feel free to. Everyone who knows me and Caster will actually catch the humor in the title as I do not use profanity.... and by the way, inappropriate as it is, I have heard it on local tv shows nowadays...But I tell you the truth, there are a lot of manufacturers who will be reading that title and thinking the exact same thing.....THAT is why I chose the title.

ESC is hobbywing. We do not make it, we will not rebadge it. They deserve the respect of making it and we will honor that.

Street price for the Pro should be less than $440 and the RTR should be less than $650 and it includes everything except batteries and a charger. The radio is FM and it is new to us.

So a 1/8 Electric Roller with motor\ESC for 440$?

No the pro is just a roller with 7075 swiss, full cvds, etc....no motor, no servo, no esc, no batteries, no transmitter/receiver....just like most pro nitro kits...

Well, there was no intention of offending anyone, so if I did, I apologize, but like I said, if I was at a different company, that would be my immediate thought process. Besides, if I labeled it "new Caster" or something, I would imagine that about 8000 members would just pass it by and write it off.

I entered a bunch of pics in the click to zoom section of the USA site.
