This is just the first proto type. They have not made a body yet. That looks like the buggy tank, so they still need to make a 150cc tank. The rear body mounts are from the buggy, so they need to make front mounts once the body is done.

We expect a release date here at Hobby Pro USA early this summer, so I am excited!

The chassis, arms, towers, and CVD's are done. The rest is from the buggy, so nearly everything will be interchangeable. The Agama A8T looks sick! I can't wait to get mine. The Agama buggy already has truggy gearing, so it is a proven ring&pinion. This will definately be a top contender in the truggy class with no know issue like many truggys have. And if it steers like the buggy - watch out.

Gene what are they using for the center spur gear? did they raise the center diff mount to accommodate a bigger gear or mill a opening in the chassis?

I don't have one yet, but I believe they cut a slot in the chassis and used a 48T spur gear with the buggy diff mount and a 13t clutch bell.

If they could price it like the Hara & D8T or atleast keep it at the buggy price, I bet you could say this would be the number 1 truggy out there. Bring back the class, design is outrageously good
