That so true, my Serpent after converting and some much needed options almost had a 4 figure pricetag.

If i could get something good to go at 600 orso i'd be very happy.

I think many other would too.

At the outdoor track i race at theres more Nitro heads in the 1/8 Truggy class than electric ones. Usually theres about 4 electric Truggys but it changed every weekend.
Dude it always seems like your fighting me on this. We want a Tekno ET48. Any information to help us achieve this is great. We know there are always more nitro's than elec, but that what were trying to change. You have a brushless RC8T right so help us out here

No man i would like the see more Manf for sure to come out with more E-Truggys so the Popularity can grow more for sure. While being at a decent price also with a pure electric platform that would help big time !

Durango is coming out with a Electric Truggy platform !

I'm just giving you crap man lmao. It's all good, I know you like E-Truggy's as much as me for sure lol! Once more of these hit the market I'm positive the market will grow hands down. I just want this to happen soon.

I hadn't heard about the serpent but at the Icebreaker this weekend I was the ONLY e-truggy (Intermed or Expert).

On a side note I am running the Tekno conversion on my Losi 8ight-t 2.0 and am currently seeded 5th in the A-Main. Truck handles great with only some electronic gremlins (which I have hopefully fixed for tomorrows Mains) holding it back.

No doubt and couldn't agree more. On the flip side the ET48 needs some liberation itself!

I don't get it either. My e-Truggy gets an A+ in the fun department.

That is very true. E-Truggy besides racing, is the funnest vehicle I've ever run. As I mentioned earlier they make an awesome basher too. Racing one of these is the funnest class to me by far.

have to say, i wouldn't mind an e-truggy either. Fun outdoor class.

Also, after trying a buddies vehicle, if they make a truggy wouldn't mind seeing a Tekno vehicle similar to the Kyosho Scorpion XXL.
