Will there be an issue with what looks like shorty pack only fitting in the buggy and Roar rules?

good question, however most current 4wd buggies only except saddles packs.

yep, as I understand the rule, you have to be able to fit a full size stick pack or a full size saddle pack into the vehicle. It's specifically written so no "only shorty pack" vehicles are legal.

I'd bet there will be rear sidepods that accept Saddles...

I really like the design of this one...

It looks like a shrunken Mugen with some part redundancy (rear shock tower?) to me. I think Xray's execution of the alloy chassis plate is the best I've seen yet.

The rear end looks too light imo.


Looks good though.

Since TLR can't seem to give us a new wheeler, I am thinking either this or the durango.

I'd love to try this, but can't if its against the rules....wonder if there's any chance at all they'll sort it to fit saddles!?

Looks crazy, may be terrible or brilliant but well worth a try!

On further look, not sure they CAN convert to saddle pack anyway, surely the chassis and therefore body narrows before you could fit a saddle length in there, even if you changed the posts.

Such a shame

What is the chassis so wide in front of the spur gear/slipper for? There are two holes near the outside also... Maybe... There is a mounting system to put the battery up front, and it's wide enough up there for full length or saddle. Just thinking. I doubt they would produce a race buggy that can't be used in the U.S. because we throw the most money at the hobby. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
