    RE: New 2WD Vehicles Coming Soon

    I hope they have the truggy in both Nitro and Electric..... but it sounds like Brushed & Brushless only......darn-it!

    Would love to have the truggy in a Nitro SH .18 that would be cool!

    RE: New 2WD Vehicles Coming Soon

    What kind of rear wing is that on the 2 WD Buggy?

    it looks very thin...... which might actually be good because it may flex real good so it wont break very easy, I guess we'll know pretty soon...

    RE: New 2WD Vehicles Coming Soon

    2wd? AWESOME!!! Finally, something a little more roar friendly... no? can't wait to see how far they are willing to go with this platform. all out? or are these to be strictly bashers? I don't see quick change hubs, which leads me to believe that this might be more tailored to the bashing crowd.

    sorry, i'm a racing nut... these things could have potential.

    RE: New 2WD Vehicles Coming Soon

    It seems like maybe I have seen an Exceed brand buggy that looks like that one but I may be mistaken.

    Could it be made by Exceed?

    Looks like these vehicles are actually made by Ansmann Racing, and they do make some pretty cool looking rides, check out these pics on this uk site.

    RE: New 2WD Vehicles Coming Soon

    I cant answer this one from experiencebecause all Ihave is a 4WD Backdraft buggy.

    but I would think either is about as good as the other, I guess it just depends on what you are doing with it, a 2WD gets pushed wherever it goes and the 4WD gets pushed and pulled so the 4WD will go places the 2WD wont but there is also less to go wrong and less parts to break on the 2WD, this is just my thinking on it, but there are many fellas on here that know way more about this stuff than Ido that can probably give you better reasons one way or the other.

    Peace!

    2wd do tend to have less breakage tho. less moving parts means less that can break.
    but 4wd does go better over rough terrain, or in sand/snow/mud.

    So Himoto already has it too, eh? Redcat's gonna have to offer something special with theirs, considering everyone else already has it and everyone knows it. I'm praying on a MMM

    So the question is, does Ansmann actually make it and Redcat and Himoto rebrand it, or is Ansmann a rebrander too and someone in China makes it?
