The summary of this thread in one post:

It could be a 1/10th TC, but why would they build ANOTHER TC...

It could be a Nitro TC, but they're partnered with Serpent, so why?

It could also be: an electric/nitro 1/8th-1/10th-micro buggy/truck/rally car...

It could be ANYTHING!!! But... that's the fun in trying to guess!

Whatever it is, I hope we find out soon!

If it's not a TC, than it's got to be a 1/18 nitro helicopter.

Shaft... can i hear it once... can i hear it twice?! SHAFT! Gimme an "s"... gimme an "h"... gimme an "i"... gimme a #... um, wrong word, my bad. Like i dont have enough suspense in my life. Micros are cute... but women dont like "cute". Women like "shaft"... say it with me... slow and repetitive... S-H-A-F-T! The girlies LOVE X-Ray fit and finish... its a guaranteed elixir of love! They stare at it... gaze longingly at its form... admire its functionality and perfection... shall we discuss... how well it FITS?!


OK. i have to admit, i am totally bored and typing like a madman about something i know nothing about. (X-Ray that is... not women....thank you very much!) Micros suck for anything other than paperweights, 1/12th TC might be cool as a way of slowing down the industry (think spec, less tire wear, easier on motors, cheaper batteries, smaller tracks in cheaper buildings... maybe hobbyshop size, ETC) but that is hardly revolutionary. (sarcasm?) 4WDF1 is totally cool, but if the pics are true to form, highly unlikely. I just know, IN MY OPINION, the only company that would get my TC3 pried from my cold dead hands, would be X-Ray with a shaft car combined with maximum ajustability. (HINT: Ralph Burch... one sold buddy... make it happen!) But the pics dont look 1/10th scale... so unhand my TC3! Besides, AE will be releasing a TC4 in 2005 or so...as soon as they are done redesigning the little tubes they supply diff lube in the kits with.... GOD I HATE those!!

I squirted about a third of my x-ray syringe diff lube on one diff ball . IRS's diff lube comes in a syringe and it works great, and you can't squirt it all out at once .

I think it would be cool if x-ray made a 1/12 scale pan car but it uses sedan bodies, and runs on foam tires the same diameter the rear tires on a 1/12 scale on road pan car. But the front tires couldn't be as wide as the rear or it would make for some major steering ! I love guessing what the two cars are going to be, than we can also see who will get the bragging rights when they do realise the cars .
