I guess it was only a matter of time before this came out. I wonder if they'll be releasing a nitro roller too. I know many people would rather have a roller than the RTR (mostly due to price).

Yes, I realize that by the time you get this things RTR that you could by up to 5 slashes. I still like these more.

Wait, the press release recommends an ESC that is not even rated for the power needed for that truck. What gives?

SWEET!!! At least now we have a choice between EP an NT. I am glad now it's in kit form, I think there are to many RTR's out there.

I am assuming the cost should be right around 400.00 street price.The RC8te is priced at 399.00 at Amainhobbies and the retail price of these 2 trucks is about the same.

Wow...and I was just thinking about getting a Caster Electric 1/8 buggy to have something to take out to the track this summer...even though I like the short course trucks getting into an SC8 elec conversion was just going to be far more than I really felt like spending. These new lower priced kits from AE will make it a heck of a lot easier to get into 1/8 electrics this year. Hope street price will be low $400's as folks have mentioned...that would rock.
