I was wondering how long it would be before someone picked up on spinning wheels

Wow! That Mini-T is da sh*t!!! You're right futureal, it might be a hot R/C gift. It also looks like it has a lot of potential to take the Mini market away from the TC's. Come on, little trucks catching air look like a ton of fun!

If it takes off, you can bet that AE will start working on crankin' out a Mini-T4!

That is exactly what they said about the 19 turn quad mag and look at what they just anounced in their letest newsletter! They kept saying it was just internet rumors and they didn't have one in the works and weeks later they announce it. I say don't beleive anything a company rep says.

By the way, that mini t is going to look awesome driving through my living room when my wife gets it for me for xmas!

also, it was sean himself that told us about the stock motor(or lack thereof).....quite frankly he had not much good to say about the person who started the rumor....

also, the motor in the mini xxxt was the 380 size.. a very cool truck........

AE has already stated countless times that they are not making a 4wd buggy and have no plans of making one in the future.

I dont know why people want AE to make a 4wd buggy so badly, if people wanted them enough, they would buy the XXX4, then AE would see that there's a market for them and make one to compete...

I have a xxx-4. oh, and a xx-4 and a cat 3000. I just think, like many others, that an AE 4wd 10th electric buggy would be awesome. A guy can dream!!

AE won't do a 4wd buggy as long as they have the relationship they have with Yokomo. Thats Yok's big Offroad class. Most of the AE guys drive Yok 4wd cars and Yok guys run AE 2wd if I'm not mistaken.

1. I never even heard of a yok electric buggy. the ae drivers in 4wd are driving some sort of small time hybred chassies (which seems to do quite well).

2. associated/reedy routienely denies the existance of anything which they havn't announced is ready for release, like the cobalt motor or the 1/8 scale which is in development.

more pictures please shane.
