A truggy version is a ways off. The main reason is popularity vs development/production costs. If truggy can grow rather than decline in popularity like it currently is, then we will get more serious about it. Being a small company we really have to be careful with our decisions.

On a side note, electric 1/8th truggy is my favorite class. I'd love to see it happen as well.

Teckno continues to impress me with their communication and transparency. Thank you!

Let me know if you guys go public. I'd buy your stock as I predict good things for your company (and for me at the track after I get my pre-ordered EB48)

I'm considering getting in to the market soon. I would bet on Tekno.

I love how up-to-date we are about this buggy if we follow this thread

Unlike so many other newly released cars where we wait for months after the initial release date and never get any real time updates.

With the buggy now getting out to the public, any word on how far behind the spare parts are? I remember reading that spare parts would follow soon after. So should I go big once I get this thing and risk breaking it, or should I take it easy for a while until spares are well stocked?

4x4 short course truck next please, sick of dealing with Duango and their short comings as a company.

+1 on a Shortcourse 4x4. The class needs a competitive truck that is built with great quality... I think the market would pay more for a well built SCT than a Losi i.e.

doubt that, tekno's perfect weight distribution will be ruined when changing 4s to 2s battery.

You need to remember that you'd go with a smaller motor too.

Their after market chassis are a complete redesign of the rigs they support, and their buggy started from zero. I'm guessing if they jumped in to SC platforms, they would attack it in a similar manner. Meaning, weight distribution would be just as good as they currently make it, if not better.
