I could see a Stampede 4x4 wheelbase with similar but lower cg chassis and Rusty size tires. Could be fun.

I'd like to see an entirely new model not just a rehash of something else. If they just throw a Rustler body and wheels on their 1/16 chassis big deal. A new monster truck would be nice, maybe a solid axle... or a 1/8 solid axle rear trophy truck.

Are you kidding, Traxxas is king of rahashing, its what they do best.

I personally don't see traxxas putting any money into the rustler or bandit cars anytime soon. A 4x4 Rusty would be nice but I don't see them doing it using the slash/pede parts.

A completely new design would be good and I'd really like to see something along the lines of the old SRT/TCP cars.

A 4X4 bandit would probably basically be a backslash conversion. Kinda like how the stampeded looks like its ideas were lifted from some of the 4X4 slash MT conversions I've seen around.

Would be nice thought to have some more 4wd buggy options seeing it seems there are relatively few of them.

don't know, don't care and im 100% serious. im not a rustler fan (in fact i hate that truck), im not a traxxas fan. and the only way im going to care about a new stadium truck form them is if its an SRT2 race KIT with none of those crappy rubbermaid partsor gray plastic. it'll be a cold day in hell before that ever happens so i simply don't care.
and i seriously doubt that they will be replacing the rustler anytime soon, even though they seriously need to

I wasn't joking either would prefer a 4wd 1/10th scale bandit in all honesty
My statement was based on what traxxas seems to be doing recently. Lets face it all their "new" trucks are basically their last chassis design with new wheels, and bodies popped on it.

I think the rustler is a great little truck, nothing competitive. But i would like to see a good competition vehicle from traxxas honestly. They need a good buggy. The bandit doesn't compare to any of the comp entry level buggies. That or a truggy.
