I am willing to bet... around 490-500. That's my guess. I don't like the aluminum arms. A waste of weight. The things I always break are the Hubs and the Cups ... ARms.. no matter how hard I slam them... aluminum or plastic.. they will break at the hinge pin area.

blah. I have the GS Storm SUT now. The Truggy ROCKS!!!

There's going to be two versions .. A Pro and a RTR. The Pro has no radio system, but has the aluminum arms and a few other things. The RTR has plastic arms, radio system, etc. I'm assuming the RTR is going to be around $500-550 since the Lightning 2 RTR is $499 @ Tower. As for the Pro, hopefully around 400-450?

well i just looked on towers site and it looks like a buggy to me and it says it's a buggy, so i think you have them mixed up because on hot bodies site it says > 1/8 Scale Lightning Stadium Pro (RTR) <

maybe i am not looking in the right place

It's not listed on Tower Hobbies yet. When you typed in HBSC55005 (Lightning Stadium), it only brings up HBSC5500 (Lighting Buggy 1).

IT looks sweet but on their web site it says it comes with aluminum a arms, engine,and radio , radio gear, servos,etc. I don't see any thing about two versions of this vehicle at all. http://www.hotbodiesonline.net/light...adium_pro.html
