to me it looks like a 1/10 scale hpi baja.

might make a decent basher buggy as it looks way overbuilt.

looks like a copy of associateds slipper clutch too.

interesting.

hmmm, I don't see anything cutting edge there, that's for sure.

Ladder chassis designs are so 80's, but you might consider a mullet next time you go for a haircut.

I was kinda thinking a scaled down 5b also. Also has akinda tamiya scale look.

I mean how many diffrent ways can you build a 2wd buggy, they all look like a copy of something lol

Saw a killer rat tail the other day

But ya agree how many ways can you make ANYTHING before it looks like a copy of each other. Hell look at all the 4wd 1/8 buggies they all pretty much look alike now with very minute differences. Same with most other things.

IMO it looks pretty decent I actually prefer the way style of buggy looks over the aerodynamic speed demons we currently call a buggy.

You said it was "cool."
I merely suggested whatI thoughtit looked like.

My understanding was for something to be cool it'd need to be cutting edge, new, different - not rehashed.

I used to think that chicks in jackets andblouseswith shoulder pads, and sunglasses at night,looked cool 25 years ago.

LOL

If you want vintage, buy vintage. It's all over eBay.There's a whole segment of this hobby that's into vintage RC stuff.

To me, it does look cool. Sure it may not be cutting edge, but it's built like a tank and that means with an overpowered brushless setup I could go bashing without worrying so much about damaging anything. Perhaps a few choice parts and I could change it to a 2wd stadium truck, too. Hmmm... Now I just wonder what the price is.

What im thinking also. Pretty good looking basher.

The website lists the Mojave desert truck but no pics oranything. Im hoping it isbuilt on theladder style chassis.

That ESC looks just like the HPI SC-15. They look pretty cool, I agree after so many times you're going to have to reiterate on some preexisting Ideas, but those look like they could be pretty darn fun, if the price point and replacement/hopup parts are good.

im thinking this is helped along by hpi.

Notice the 

esc
motor
shocks
front suspension design
tvp chassis plates
roll over bars

even the lights on the side, all look like the baja 5b.


even inside the transmission theres full metal internal gears and they are the same design as the blitz/efirestorm.


just my 2c.

I would guess someone from Durango / Dex.

Everyone and there brother uses that $15.00 dollar esc including HPI,Exceed,Redcat etc. Not very smooth or many features but better than alot of RTR esc out there.

if these things are relatively cheap (i'm guessing they will be) i might have to get the "Fury", looks kinda like a knockoff of a Blitz with different tires. and with that all metal tranny, it should able to take a pretty hefty BL system.
