Just as I thought - it appears to be a slightly re-hashed version of the current SS rtr.

RTR's are Hobao's bread and butter, will be interesting to see if go down the path of a competition kit again (last one was the HyperStar which wasn't a bad piece of kit).

My guess is they won't venture back to the path of proper competition 1/8 nitro kits.

The 80% rollers are what at first glance attracted me to the OFNA logo. Do you guys think this is going anywhere? How much has leaked

I would love to see them back in the "race". I ran a Hyper 9 a few years back and honestly thought that with the next generation and some bugs worked out that chassis was a true contender. Loved Tim Bump's design philosophy and support.
