Given that I was wrong I would guess that a cost of $250 would be logical. This would be price competitive with the Slash 4x4.
The Hyper 9 platform would have been too heavy for a 1/10th scale power system. The Mini is quite tough. We have run them with 1/8th scale buggies in our club and they haven't broken yet. The bigger wheels and stuff will put more stress on certain parts, but it should still be pretty strong.

Did they give any hints as to a projected cost? Somebody mentioned $395, and my jaw dropped. I know what all goes into this thing, but if Ofna wants a good chunk of the 4WD SCT market, they'll need to make it cheaper than the Slash 4X4... which comes with everything. The Hyper mini goes for under $300. I'd pay around that for this kit... but nowhere near $400.

The price is under $300.00 the $400.00 mark would not be a reasonable price for the car since it's a roller. No difined price yet but will be a reasonable price like the mini.

Tell them they better get their butts movin' or all the money that kids and moms are saving is going to the first one out. I'm predicting Slash 4wd at this point. Buyers are chomping at the bit for a 4wd SCT, and it comes down to price and availability.

Now for me....I'm patiently waiting for the one that I think is going to actually be the better car. Let's just say Traxxas isn't getting my money on this one.

I've owned a Jammin CRT.5 and their quality is awesome!! I assure you that you won't be replacing your stock shocks on the Jammin/Ofna. Can you say this about the plastic Slash shocks? Add $55 to your Slash's cheap entry price.

This one is a no brainer for me, but in the end the Slash will out sell the Jammin/Ofna cuz most people want the full meal deal for $275, but not me.

I have high hopes and standards for the new Jammin/Ofna SCT. It could seriously be my end all, do it all, do it anywhere car. Big track, small track, bashing, racing, whatever. Affordable "cheaper than 1/8 scale" electronics. Cool looks. It has it all.

It is, but the 1/10 SC trucks are very close to the same size as a 1/8 buggy.

The fact that this is sold as a roller gets my $$ right away, and probably a lot of others who allready have 1/10th electronics. Not to take away from any of the other company's trucks/designs, I just like this layout better.

Mayby some nice light front mudguards?

This truck looks sweet. And it looks like it uses the same arms, shock towers, shocks, ect.. from the Hyper STE. The hyper STE is a very tough lil truck so this will be as well. If the price is lower than $300 count me in! Like on my STE i will throw some 8ight shocks and hit the track!

I can hardly wait for this truck, just ordered a Mamba Max Pro today that will be used in it. Never owned an OFNA or Castle product before so I'm looking forward to this setup.

You'll be happy with both.

Jammin/Ofna is tuff stuff. Castle is top notch too. I'm doing the same thing and expect this car/setup to be pretty stout.

While we've seen pics of the Ofna version with the body on, there's no real way to confirm they're identical until they release pics of it naked.

I hope they have a conversion kit for those of us with current CRT.5. I already a nice 3S system in mine and it's as fast as my 5S 1/8 Truggy. I will say that by the time you convert a CRT.5 to 1/10 truck wheels, add a long chassis, a bunch of plastic bumpers and a really big body it will be heavy. A lot heavier than a Slash 4x4.

I've run my CRT.5e on a Novak 6.5R and 2S will good success, but it wasn't crazy fast. Once I converted it to a Mamba Max, Medusa 50mm x 3300kv and 3S 4000mah lipos it was very powerful, but also heavy. So heavy that it had a lot more breakage issues than a cRT.5 on 2S with the stock buggy sized wheels.
