Yes, boyfriend!!! Brushless systems will bolt right in....any motor of the 280-380 sizes will work.

Hopups will include the standard off-road upgrades; CVD's, motor mounts, threaded shocks, etc...even some aluminum goodies for all you show-boaters....

beetlebz - A replica of your GT? Look again.

Two different approaches to the mini world. The Mini-T was meant as a scaled-down version of the XXX-T.

Batteries are supposed to be 4xAA or up to 6 cells, same as the Mini-T. I expect that quite a bit of the hop ups for the mini-T (bodies, tires, etc) will fit the new RC18T.

Ya. We tried to include everything we could that might be considered an upgrade with other vehicles....and still keep the cost competitive. This is one sweet little truck....

'sigh', sadly I have bought into the enemy - Losi Mini-T. lol.

Dont write me off just yet though, I fully intend to get a 4WD 1/18 later when the prices drop. (Got the mini for 110).

I hope we see 1/18 2WD and 4WD classes out there in the ROAR world soon.
