That is what i like to hear!!!! tough and low wear,

Can anyone share a price for this buggy? I too checked out the site and its down. I also would like to try something different from the big 3 & I'm hoping the price point is more around the b4.2 range.

You are in luck. They will be right around $280ish...

SWEET! I'm also hoping they re-think the red anodizing to a more neutral color, like the color of the aluminum front caster blocks would be better IMO. Thanks C Branch!

I saw this buggy for the first time this weekend at IERC. It was sweet. I believe Andy won the mod class. He showed me the buggy and said they would be going for 279.00. That's a great price. The buggy has a ton of options like the shock mounts along with battery location and size.

I may be mistaken but I think it can be eithier mid motor or rear.

Andy was very cool in taking the time to show me the buggy and explain some of its features. I'm thinking about getting one after they have been on the market for awhile.

I see two different bodies, does one body fit either configuration ? The cab forward one on the rear motor cars is way better looking than that boxy one on the mid motor cars.
Great to see an alternative and someone who is behind their product.
