Default '08 dirt nitro challenge thoughts

hey all:Was looking at neobuggy's pics from the '08 nitro challenge and a few things crossed my mind.First it's weird not to see the trinity logo on adam drakes 1/8th nitro truck and buggy. Second greg degani is using the z-car and i'd like to know if he's a team driver for them or is he still experimenting with different brands and just chose the z-car for this event?Finally what can you tell me about the new o'donnel 1/8th truggy as far as specs and a release date and is tebo their the only driver running o'donnel's nitro buggy and truggy at the moment?Thanks for the info

there are about 5 people in the world with the od buggy. But the truggy, is probably over a year away.

i hate to judge a car by its name, because i drive an uncommon car myself, but that z-car just doesnt appeal to me, i dont like alot of the stuff on it. it looks like theyre trying too hard to be different, but i can see what id consider weak points... what do you guys think?

I don't like the half pivot ball suspension on it. I had issues with the bottom ball on the Mugen buggy pulling out of the arms. And their linkage just looks odd. But who knows. It could end up being the most solid buggy out there. Oh and judging by this pic, I'd say Greg is probably on the payroll for Z-Car.
