I am not feeling it for some reason. I think it's because AE overhyped it. 10 days of buildup on their website for this was too much. I don't know what I expected but because of the hype I expected more. If anyone from AE reads this: be careful with these drawn out product introductions. They can get old fast.

I think it is a really cool looking truck that will be fun to drive and the kit aspect is cool.

I agree. However it is kinda stupid when traxxas does not even tell people when the release their products. They have the xl5 rustler and stampede waterproof now and the new slash bodies and they are not even on their site. But 10 days is a long time to be teasing.

An AE stealth tranny does not need to be metal. By far the best well built tranny out there.

Yeah AE's tranny's don't need metal gears to be brushless ready. There strong enough for anything ( i know I've ran a 3.5 on lipo in my T4), not to mention its also an effecient design.

"Two spur gears included: 75 tooth for brushless stock and 87 tooth for brushed and modified motors "

it looks like it says its brushless stock. or am i just misinterpreting what it says?

You're misinterpreting it, it's a kit it doesn't come with any electronics.

the reason for non advertisement is to get rid of the old stock first, if you had the choice between a regular stampede and waterproof for the same price, its a no brainer... but if people dont know they can get rid of the old stuff.

Does anyone have a credible idea what the price point will be? In doing some searching, I've seen "pre-orders" listed anywhere from $180 to $249. That sure seems like a wide range. I'm guessing around $200 is where most places start it, but I was just wondering if anyone had more insight.

Looks like a cool truck, and I love kits, so I'll likely end up with one. Looks like my next project.

At our little club, Into the Fence Racing, all seven of us have Slash trucks with various after-market mods. Most consider this truck to be a step above because it is based on a race chassis whereas the Slash has mostly Stampede (basher) parts. I like it because the body looks like my SC8, but I won't buy one until I see it beat my aluminum Slash around the track a few times without breaking parts. If it can't do that stock, I'll just buy an SC10 body to put on my Slash. I've put too much money and time into my Slash to buy another RWD CORR truck, so it will have to be pretty amazing.

The SC10 has the advantage of both looking more scale and probably driving better than the Slash on a track. However, the fact the Slash handles like a pig in mud is part of the fun.

Let's face it, the Slash is hardly scale. If the real trucks were that wide and ugly pregnant women wouldn't even be allowed to look at them. The first thing I did with my slash was drop it on some road rims and use the added stability from the length to go drifting, it looks slightly less ridiculous then. If I hadn't already bought a Slash I'd probably go for the SC10. Looks like it has the looks and chassis to school the Slash.

And about quality and durability, you are looking at a kit with no electronics that costs the same as a Slash RTR does. The stealth tranny is possibly one of the strongest and most efficient in RC, the chassis is a lengthened version of a race winner and the fact it comes with a spur for stock brushless is an obvious sign of intent for a company that are primarily involved in racing.

My thoughts exactly. I said this in one of the other SC10 threads, I don't think these will be allowed into any of the Slash races unless its a mod class. I also think we could see a whole new class come of this if a few more manufacturers jump on the bandwagon.

I think the SC10 will be lighter, and is obviously aimed at racers. They probably wont be great for bashing, but on the track they're gonna kick butt.
