Default something alittle different

here are pics of a new redcat model from Ihobby.
It will be availible early 2013.

Like it or hate it, gotta give redcat some credit for trying something different.

1st pic I thought they were making a go-kart for a second due to the positioning of the guy in the background

looks interesting... had a similar idea for a real vehicle to drive many years ago wanted to graph a motorcycle rear to the front end of a light car. Never got any farther than a rough sketch seeing I lack the means to actually make it.

wonder how much it will cost

thought it was 3wd thought I could faintly make out axles in the front just wasn't sure.(also looking closer I see the belt goin up front now)
diff case might have been obvious, but I've seen some RWD's that used diff cases in the front cause the parts were off another RC (the 1/16th scale gravedigger is one of such RC's)

just wish it wasn't belt drive

I wish it did not run on witchcraft..
The drive arrangement was the first thing I wanted to know.
You did not want belts because of the risk of stones and stuff? I also noticed it has some mudguards/fenders (?).

yup
By me even the little bit of paved surface that is remotely useable I've never seen it pebble free I always see little pebbles even after sweeping that would eat a belt.

I'll buy it (If it's under $150) if somebody makes a Morgan 3 Body for it.. I had plans to build one myself previously. (Still might, off of a Venom GPV1)

here are to other models coming soon. While not as "outthere" as the 3 wheel batmobile thingy, they are a bit different for redcat.

A 1/8 desert buggy(might have to get this one), and a belt driven 4wd car with liscenced body.

I give them deserved credit for conjuring up the 3 wheeler. I'm curious to know how it drives. In my experience, 3 wheeled vehicles like to roll over; usually on top of the guy riding the thing (think 80s Honda ATC).

The 1/8 desert buggy is more my style and is something I would consider purchasing.

2 wheels at the front is heaps more stable than having them at the rear.

But yeah those 3 wheel bikes are banned here in Australa because of how dangerous they are

LOL, too funny.

Love top gear, best show ever.

I was surprised to see a licensed body from redcat. The bigger companies do that all the time.

The licensed body, 3 wheeler and other new models have me thinking that redcat is making enough that they want to expand and improve.
I know just a few month back they moved to a larger warehouse, so they can stock more parts....and of course, new models.

On the one hand it seems odd to make a 3 wheeler....as I doubt alot of people will buy one. But I think its more to show what Redcat can do. Same as traxxas did with the X0-1 and the funny car. Not alot of those will be sold(compared to other models) and yet they made then anyway.

that's what I was thinking only thing I can see the 3 wheeler doing is having the rear slide out on fast turns if it was RWD only, but seeing its 3wd I dunno if that will be an issue.

HPI started out similar to redcat from what I read. Hell they still take other companies RC's and slap their name on them(Recon, the hobao's, and a few more)

...I just realized the Hauhgyrhga body has a "Zonda F" decal near the rear wheelarch

The solid axle monster truck wheely king style thing looks pretty cool. I'd like to see redcat come out with a scaler though... there aren't truly any RTR scaler availiable besides Axial and RC4WD, which don't come cheap.

i too wished they would have come out with a scaler.
The rs10 MOA crawler is a great rig for the money. If they could have made a scaler for the same price it could have been a hit.

No, HPI started out making pan cars, and things that were actually considered competitive. Redcat started out by cheaply cloning other cars. They're not even on the same level.

I'm still buying one of these when it comes out... ****ing 3 wheel drive man.

If you take a look on their website, the downloadable manuals are in chronological order.

never noticed it was chronological in all honesty

actually looking at the company history they started out more like RPM making hop-ups for pan cars, and tamiyas from 86-94(when they made a F1, and a pan car neither of which manuals I saw on the site )

but will admit I had it wrrong

The desert buggy looks too similar to the Axial Exo to me. And at only $200 now for an Exo kit, I don't see any reason to buy this rather than the Exo which this is likely just copying. Still nice to see that RedCat is producing new stuff, though.

How is this even remotely similar to an EXO? It's a belt driven three wheel drive car.
