    RE: 5th Scale Brushless Buggy RTR

    WOW, i had just emailed chris at Redcat and asked about these. they have been testing them for over a year now(you can find the earlier utube vids)
    chris said they would be coming to the redcat lineup, but that there was still no firm release date.
    this vid must mean there are close!

    i think this is a much needed addition to the hobby.
    some people have taken bajas and made them brushless. thats just wrong!
    1st, that chassis was meant to have a gas engine as its beating heart.
    2nd, its too heavy to be a good electric chassis.

    i will have to find some way to afford this beast!

    I do wish they would make an onroad version tho!!!!!!!!!!!

    RE: 5th Scale Brushless Buggy RTR

    i asked on the vids about the weight.

    he said about 14-15 pounds with the batts.(almost have what a baja wieghs)

    that sounds pretty good to me. heavy enough to be strong, light enough to be fast with a 6s setup.

    with 4wd it should handle pretty good.

    im wondering if the 150amp ezrun can handle 8s?

    MORE SPECS
    29 and 1/2 inches long
    12 inches tall(im assuming thats to the wing)
    21 inches wide
    20 wheel base
    1 and 1/2 inches of ground clearance(im sure thats adjustable tho)

    I think I've seen all the vids on this new brushless buggy
    and on your 2nd note, a Baja 5B or 5T make a great brushless car!
    no such thing as being to heavy [:-]
    you only need the right motor and esc

    RE: 5th Scale Brushless Buggy RTR

    These will be released sometime in late January. Price will be announced in January I'm sure. Many of the parts for this are the same as the new XT gas models, which we have also been refining for close to a year.

    RE: 5th Scale Brushless Buggy RTR

    It is impressive but I really don't see the point of a 1/5th scale electric (for me). If i cant hear it or smell then I dont want it! joking aside the main reason I jumped to 1/5th scale was (partially the scale) because it ran on 2.89 dollar gasoline and could go for 40min on a single tank. Economically its cheaper to run and longer run times.

    But this is fantastic for those who don't have a garage and want to get into 1/5th scales without the mess and smell of gasoline. That I give it 2 thumbs up for. Anyone gonna try a lehner motor with 14s setup? muahahaha

    you could always run Colman Fuel to get rid of the gas smell
    you could alway try a Neu motor on 8s!

    RE: 5th Scale Brushless Buggy RTR

    if they can sell it with lipos for $500 or under, then it should sell good.
    i would like to see it for $400, but my guess is $500.

    and i wasnt saying before that the baja CANT be a good brushless chassis. but the more the chassis weight the more voltage-better ESC and motor you need.
    at 14 pound, this 1/5 buggy is about the same weight as a emaxx. and there are vids of emaxx's with the ezrun 150amp system, and it works pretty good.

    in this vid the guy has a 150amp ezrun on 3s in a emaxx. pretty quick IMO. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MW-G1IHvSBE

    RE: 5th Scale Brushless Buggy RTR

    My EMaxx is only 10lbs with 4s.
    And you don't need huge electrics to make a Baja 5B fast on 6s... take a look on youtube

    I guedd $600 for this buggy.. I woulve to see it offered without lipos

    RE: 5th Scale Brushless Buggy RTR

    Redcat tried selling Large Scale rigs as rollers. They didn't fly off the shelves. This will allow the new owner to get up and running right out of the box, and then decide on better batteries, chargers later on.
