I'm sure most other parts, including arms, driveshafts, shocks, and towers will all be different.

Other than this being a new truck on the market, what does this truck offer that others dont? All the truggies on the market today are pretty legit in the performance department and to top them, it better be special.

Can that really happen with the size difference in buggy and truggy wheels??

Billy is using the same tray as everyone right now. The truck looks good, looking forward to seeing it in production.

One thing I can see is that the towers are aluminum. And the cab drops straight down right before the engine. So you wouldn't get too much cooling from air going through the body. Unless you cut it out

In the video it showes the truggy still needs work. It lost a right rear camber link from the looks of it in less than 5 mins of runnin but thats the rason they test. Also seemed to have shock oils way to light for those jumps, you can hear it drag in alot of areas. But im sure once testing is over this truck will be perfect and dialed!

most buggies now are actually using truggy gearing. I know the xray car is for sure using the same gearing as the XT8 and if im not mistaken the mugen lines do as well. not sure about the other but i would assume they are pretty close. they just change the spur/CB ratio to accomodate

the motor is way up front, i bet its identical to the buggy up front with a longer chassis behind the motor. very cool.
