if any of you guys get the chance, can you test fit some of AE's pin based wheels? I am very curious about this vehicle, but, considering the amount of mounted tire sets I have, pretty much a need here for the rears at least to work.

Thanks!

I know and agree that hexes are better for sure, heck when I was running the Academy line they came with rear 12mm hexs which turned heads back then.

But getting in used vehicles, got a load of pin style tires lol that would be a shame to start over.

The car looks great though.

By the way, any news on handling when using porky packs like say a 7000mah+ one? I know shorty is the big deal, but would be curious non the less.


lastly, looking into the vehicle I noticed this:

*Carbon Fiber Towers and CNC Caster Blocks shown in picture sold separately.
Are there pictures of the vehicle then that actually shows how it will come when you buy?

Pictures shown are how Andy is currently testing the car. It does have a few hop ups on it. I think as Andy and the rest of the Hobby Pro team makes runs on it, they will find the sweet spot and share that info accordingly

I love the looks of this buggy, but the red anodizing is a bummer. My racing colors have always been like green and purple. The red would look funny. Any chance of them coming in gun metal or black in the future?


Ps. I know that's a silly question but still curious.

Thoughts of neutral aluminum pieces are on our mind for that exact reason

Oh I didn't know anyone locally was running one. I'll definitely come check it out. What days do you race the most often?

I have been running the buggy for about 4 months now. I won't be out to track again until the big race on May 17-19.
Feel free to come over and see the buggy if you are there.

I don't know if I'll get to race, but I will be stopping by to check out the races. I'll stop by and take a look. Thanks

Since we are talking colors, I'd say a dark bronze color would be cool and unique. When can I order one. :-)

Bears a striking resemblance to a DEX210, but then again they are all starting to look the same!
