Yeah take a Eight-t 3.0 and put an electric conversion on it.
I have not heard of a plan to make a full electric kit but I also don't work there. Seems almost as simple as a longer E chassis but......

To my knowledge, we have no plans at this time to make an E-Truggy. The class is very pocketed right now. This does not mean we never will, it just means it isn't in the hopper right now.

Many of us hope the drop one! That would help the class! You being sponsored by them you probably notice the are trend setters...

He actually works for the company. I am sure they are or have evaluated the business case. As for today your best bet is to do an electric conversion.

Don't know why Losi is always late to the party...
Losi was late to the party with a 4x4 SCT and now wants to be late to the eTruggy party...
At least the good side to an eTruggy from Losi is it should carry over the nice layout from the eBuggy but hopefully they give us a mechanical brake option...

I would disagree with that statement. They were the first of the big three to the 4X4 SC market (AE came later and Kyosho never made a truck). Again you can easily make an E-Truggy with parts avaiable today. As Ryan said the class on a national scale is not as popular as you think. IMO the class did not really take off until Losi made the SCTE. Tekno has since made it a two horse race. (AE trucks are rarely seen these days). Mugen has been hinting at a truck and again Durango trucks are not too popular these days.

I don't expect you to say different... and understand why you do
Not here for the who's right game of these forums
But you know a dedicated eTruggy would be way better than a conversion so let's at least agree on that
