Default Upcoming 4x4 short course trucks??

Have a Losi SCTE right now. Love the way it drives...but....its quality leaves a lot to be desired. Rather than investing in new shocktowers and chassis, I'm just curious of any other SC trucks coming out soon from the big guys (Xray, Serpent??, Kyosho, Mugen) etc.

And sorry, have no interest in the SC10 4x4 and Durango.

Team Caster is looking to release a 4wd SC with in the next few months. Looks pretty promising.

Serpent will be making one, but not soon. AFAIK, nothing has been put on paper yet, let alone any prototypes built. Probably be next spring/early summer before you see anything. Yeah, it sucks. I want one now.

Xray has already said they weren't interested in making a 4wd SCT. The XSCT that Racetek and K2RC developed is based on the Xray 1/8th scale platform, but Xray was not interested in picking up this design. We're still waiting for any announcements from K2RC as to price and availability.

I heard the same thing about the Serpent, and from what I hear its a go. So many cars come out from Serpent Billy has to be super busy.

Personally I hate SCT. But I will get one of the Serpents when it comes out so I can run on the 1/10 track here.
