Default Greetings, I would like to introduce Caster Racing...(official pro 1/10 thread)

Hello fellow rc racers. I would like to formally announce the new Caster Racing 1/10 pro kit. It will be known as the sniper 10 buggy here in the states and as the saku 10 buggy in Asia. We have worked on this project for 3 years. Actually it began before I was around... But we have worked hard as a team to create what we see is the perfect 1/10 scale buggy. I will let the pictures show how far we have progressed in the past 2 years and hopefully this will prove beyond a reasonable doubt all of my posts over the past as being true and accurate and that I was serious about the company.

By the way, it is cool working with new technology and new raw materials compared to the past.

Without further adieu, welcome to the future of Caster Racing.......

Yes, it is not a Mugen or anyone else's copy.

No, it will not be $600.

Yes, we will be taking preorders soon.

No, parts availability will not be an issue.

Yes, hobby stores will probably want to pick this up if they race 1/10 4wd.

No, this is not a joke, it really is a Caster.

Yes, the 4 missing nylock nuts and the 2 screws will be included in production kits and were removed for visualization purposes.

smokinu: You're probably like from the look of things. If it will come with gear diffs it'll be spot-on.

Wow Mike the buggy looks amazing. This is the buggy that just peaked my interest enough to bring me out of retirement. Count me in for one.

And I thought my Durango was pretty! This looks great - and less of a PITA to wire the electronics.

Are those divots for NiMH packs on the chassis? Isn't that an odd choice for a car released in 2010? Or are those for something else?
