Have to agree, at my local track couple guys run them but they donít really seem to love them. I bought one when they first came out and the rear diff was a pain to take out, but ultimately it did not fit my driving style. Also add in the price of parts and the kit with no discount codes and made it hard for me to justify. In any case does not really matter what say we as up to TLR and with really no market for a Truggy I donít see them in a big hurry to release one.

If there isnít one, maybe there will be soon... Donít know if you heard yet, but it was just announced today that Gil Losi Jr. is rejoining TLR in a consultory role. He will be working directly with the design team to work on the ďnext generation of wehiclesĒ. 🙂 Personally, Iíve always been an Associated guy, but I still couldnít help but smile when I saw this news.

Clearly you don't speak to or for ANY Pros and have not driven the car.... ijs. The car is better than the 4.0 in EVERY way, period.... Easy to talk crap about something you dont own or have not worked on. ijs
