Awesome, I can't wait! I did however get the chance to compare the weight of my converted buggy to the nitro and there was only 10grams difference. The nitro buggy has alot of the titanium options on it so if not for that I think they would be about the same weight.

I am as excited about this as you guys are. And you know how good it will be when it does get here. But check it out, they said the truggy would be shipping in time for christmas, and the first batch just went out. You actually think it will be here mid July, since they just released the look of the name badge. And they have an E-truggy and 10th scale 4wd on their site. Pretty sweet

It's my understanding from Chicky that the layout will be something like the Caster e-buggies( but way better!). Ie, motor in the front left side, and two batteries in the rear, side by side. This means that the center diff will probably be centered, or nearly so, on the chassis. If you look at your nitro conversion, the existing front and rear chassis braces would not allow that, the driveshafts would go right through the braces.

Looks to be on its' side...just not in a low profile orientation. More on its' end.

Judging by the radio box on top it may be a cab-forward type body.

Glad to see the RX8 fits in nicely. MMM might be a squeeze tho. Also, looks like an Elite RC/Losi 8 style-ish motor mount. New wing style as well, if they built the actual ones to match the rendering.

To me it doesn't look to be a cab foreword cause of the radio Box. That's right where the air filter is on the nitro and plus in the photos of the supposed body from nuremburg, it wasnt
