so...it will be a hard choice for crawlers...and a easy choice for tamiya's..:d:d:d

This is one sweet truck, i might have to get one, maybe.
I like the suspension, it looks nifty. As dose the detailed body, tires and tranny, I love it.

i'll take one later...when some hop-ups will be already out for it[:'(]...but the price is in the same price range with Axial AX-10...hmmm hard decision[:@][:@][:@]
That's not quite true. The Axial is $220, the CR01 is $310-$340. The RTR Axial is closer in price to the CR01 but then again it includes the electronics.

Can't wait to see everyone's builds!

I'm not into crawling, but since tamiya is coming out with this seems like they will discontinue the TXT-1, because it's the best crawler.
If I was going to crawl I would most definitly get a truck designed for it the CR-01.

Still listed as "late April" at Tower.. the moment that it is being packed, I will let you know! I think it will be soon, though! I don't see this one dragging on for another month...

I don't think the thing would be able to crawl afterwards because the center of gravity will be thrown off.

You'd be better off getting a HiLux for the MFU
