Unique design with the body covering the rear shock tower and shocks. Any projected date or time frame when it will hit the market?

Default Three Things

#1 Looks Awesome. But in the pic I see a radio tray next to the truggy. It looks like the servo again is next to the engine. Dont think it is the buggy tray as it looks longer. May be wrong. But I hope they moved it.

#2 Look at the right rear tire at the end of the vid. last jump he takes it a little short. Then the car settles and darts to the right on the gas. If you watch the right rear tire it looks broke. Maybe Mr Easton can comment. But it didnt look like there were any real hard landings? Not hating I just want to know if what I see is correct.

#3 Body Flex in the vid every time he lands it sounds like the body is flexing. This tells me maybe the chassie is flexing as well. Can anyone else here the body flex every landing? Maybe it is just a body slap?

I'm sure it will get better but from the vid I wish it had a little more steering exiting the turns. On power it looked great.

That was my thought. It appears to not have enough steering and the rear end looks like it's 1 throttle blip away from spinning out several times.

1st time out with it,....there is A LOT of setup changes that can be made. At this point I'm sure BE is just experimenting.

Ditto. First time out with a new car. Even the 811 is not "figured out" yet and it has TONS of potential. Takes time to forumulate a setup that works for everybody and most track conditions. Once it gets into the hands of the masses, it will only get better. To me, it didn't look like it had enough rear brake to pivot but Billy has a very smooth driving style. To me, it looked like he wasn't truly pushing the truck and I wouldn't either if he doesn't have many parts to work with. Either way, it looks promising for a first run. Don't put too much into it guys.

And yes, the truck will have the new tray. I don't think Billy and team have the released new tray to use yet, but should have it by worlds. Even still, the stock tray does work fine. I've finally got things figured out on my end and haven't lost a throttle servo. I have utmost confidence in my car right now as it rips and takes the pounding an 8th scale should from an on-road driver. I enjoy the 811 buggy more every time I ran it and the truggy should be no exception.

I can't wait to see how BE gets it running after the Worlds and has some time to really play around with it.

Regardless I'm still going to be owning one when they are released. Can anyone that has actually seen it with the body off are most of the parts going to be interchangeable between the Buggy and Truggy?

From a production standpoint I would definitely see it sharing ALOT of the buggy parts.
