Default Arrma 1/8 Raider XL Mega discontinued? alternatives ?

TLDR: Is the Arrma 1/8 Raider XL Mega discontinued ? Are there any good alternatives 1/8 for under 300$ RTR ? (no battery is fine, I have some)

I currently own a 1/16 Traxxas Slash, Itís pretty fun but I d like something a lot larger that I can use on a lot more terrains, hence looking for a 1/8.

At the same time I donít really want to spend a fortune, as long as it candy 30mph itís fine, but bonus points

If it can be upgraded (brushless, limo, etc Ö)




I was really interested in the Arrma 1/8 Raider XL Mega, but it seems discontinued, some sites say it will be back mid July but not sure I believe it.




Some brushed ones can still be found, I suppose I could start with that and upgrade it later Ö

I don't know that it's been discontinued, but more of delay because of the the whole Hobbico vs. Traxxas incident.

Since you posted in the 1/8 scale section, is that a must have scale? A lot, if not most, of 1/8 scale RCs are 4wd. I don't know of too many other 2wd 1/8 scale buggies unless you look at the UK sites have Acme Racing and FTX buggies.

There are a couple of decent 1/10 monster truggies (that what I call them anyways) out there that aren't 1/8 scale, but would do many types of terrain better than a low slung 2wd 1/8 buggy. If you go in the 1/8 scale 4wd realm of things, you will more than likely go over the $300 budget, unless you go to something like the DHK Zombie, or get a good deal on a used platform.
