Straught from the NHRA website.

With so much invested it would be hard to believe they wouldn't release it. I just sold a high dollar nitrogen funny car kit which I would have loved to setup and race if there was any kind.d of lessened locally. If anybody can boost popularity of a class, Traxxas can do it.

*edit*
Dang autocorrect. I don't have the patience to fix it all.

The info was taken down because it was leaked by someone at Traxxas. Its not due to come out for some time.

I think if on road was to get any bigger, Traxxas would have to come out with a proper Nascar or Wtcc/Btcc car. (completely unrelated, I know)

Just so you know it was not leaked by someone at Traxxas. Picture was a scan from a ad in a July issue of a drag racing magazine. We scanned it and thats the picture thats been passed around. The traxxas web site does show you the pictures of all 4 cars but you have to be fast to capture them as it goes to a page stating "web page not avalable"

Here are pics posted by someone else who captured them from the site.

I have never been interested in scale drag racing, but with this setup and this car, I am actually interested.
