I been wondering about the price as well. I am sure it will be more than the buggy but how much remains to be seen.

From the looks of the pic, the engine is sitting a good bit towards the center. truck may have lots of steering.

From Neobuggy.com


Having recently invested in a spy camera for our undercover mole, the results are starting to appear! This photo, taken at a test session at Thunder Alley confirms a truggy is in the works from Hot Bodies. Our agent, 00Neo (Yeah you just read that!) informs us that HB D8 designer Josh Alton was present, ironing out bugs before the planned release. Stay tuned...

If they are so close to releasing it I wonder why Jesse and Ty arent running it at the midwest nats @ CRCRC this weekend Jesse is only signed up for buggy and Ty left after the electric race last week.
