Actually your pics are of the stryker the mirage is the sand runner
my post mentioned both, just put pics of the S-TRYK-R (get the name?)
I thought darin had said there would be a brushed version of the Mirage but no sign of that yet on their site...only shows the brushless version.
The only way a brushed could work is if they had a 14.4v ESC with a 775 (traxxas summit titan sized) motor. And I dont see that costing them anyless than the brushless setup. But maybe im wrong.
The strykr may do well. granted offroad models generally sell better as there are more places to use them. But on the other hand, I cant think of any other "trike" offering out there. Anyone can buy a 4wd onroad and there are tons of options. But if anyone wanted something unique to drive on pavement, now they have a option.
