It might make a good 4wd Corr truck conversion.

The buggy in the two videos appear to have a different chassis? Looks like a flat metal plate.

LosiRacer77: how was the handling? Electronics smoking is bad don't get me wrong, but I would be more concerned with the handling as even the top name stuff can smoke, it happens for sure. If handling sucks though even with a good setup on it, not much you can do about that. If that guy has an account or can post, I'd be curious to get some info from him on the vehicle.

kuffman: there does appear to be 3 different kinds of "werewolf" vehicles they have. If you look on the Acme site, they show the 3.

Model A2015T-3 has twin 7.4V lipos :



and they have one called the "Juggernaut" which is the one with the flat chassis:




based on the layout, etc. if a top name came out with one of these using part materials that were known not to be suspect, I could see this getting some glowing "first look" reviews, and wouldn't expect it to handle badly on the track, with a proper setup of course.

if I had the know-how, it could be an interesting project vehicle to get a few custom made hop up items like graphite towers, chassis brace, or even a chassis made to use standard motor pinions, etc. Again, this is assuming the plastics are up to snuff.

Cain, if the diffs and plastics are decent I would love to get my hands on one for a bit.Iam seeing quite a few parts on the buggy that could be made near indestructable.

funny you should say that:






Name: Trooper-EP Model: A2016T

(1) 1/10 scale brushless short-course race truck.
(2) Fully assembled, ready to run.
(3) 4WD shaft drive system.
(4) Low center of gravity and high durability.
(5) Motor mount, not only keeps the motor cool, but also protects the motor when jumping and bashing.
It looks like in the pics that the spot for the mechanical brakes is retained as
well.

Height: 190mm
Length: 550mm
Width: 310mm
Wheel base: 320mm
Track F/R: 320mm
Ground clearance: 28mm
Weight: 2460g
seems some of the dimensions fits ROAR specs. looks like you can set rear toe in like how they do on the e-revo?

someone posted there experiences with the buggy on oople:

Change the shock piston nuts for 2.5mm stainless ones as the stock plastic ones will come off.
servo's and 2.4ghz has been faultless. Ok so its no losi but its less than half the price and its not half as bad, good little buggy
