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!

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...

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.

i like the looks of the buggy

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?

RE: New 2WD Vehicles Coming Soon
 
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.

Ansmann goes make nitro vehicles and here is a video of there .28 4WD Truggy in action........

Now if Redcat Racing would make there videos more like this when these NEW vehicles come out....wow! would they get some attention this is a well put together video and this is a good looking machine too.

is a 2wd better for bashing more than a 4wd is?

1ofmyfuns 01-22-2011 07:40 PM

RE: New 2WD Vehicles Coming Soon
 
Heres a video look at the Buggy ansmann calls the Mad Rat.....looks pretty cool, if the price is right when these come out next month it may be my first electric..... we'll see

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!

RE: New 2WD Vehicles Coming Soon

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.

electricrc68 01-22-2011 08:05 PM

RE: New 2WD Vehicles Coming Soon
 
yeah but i think im sticking with 2wd for my rc cars! i dont have much of a terrain but grass lol. maybe if redcat makes a 2wd MT i can check that out since im now into MT considering i have a ton of grass.

RE: New 2WD Vehicles Coming Soon
 
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 :D

cswtornado 01-23-2011 05:51 AM

RE: New 2WD Vehicles Coming Soon
 
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?
