Crap something else to add to the wishlist... The fiancé is not gonna be happy about this. I wonder what the pricing is going to be like, sure looks interesting.

The video does not give many good references for size, but it looks cool none-the-less.

Funny that there's no talk about this on the Caster forums. At least that I'd seen.

Something about the video that looks so....homemade. Not professional at all.

I'd take it with a grain of salt.

thats doesn't look like anything special at all. just looks like a 1/8 buggy truggy chassis but bigger... baja 5t just looks much better.

both are still not a corr trucks. truck and independent suspension? i don't think so... only the body makes it look like corr truck. give me a solid rear axle drive, then ill consider one... until then they are all buggies just with truck bodies.

Upon further investigation, it looks like a guy built this truck and is looking for Caster to start producing the chassis, suspension etc.

Meh.

well it doesn't look too slow to me considering it's size and weight. remember 5th scale's weigh 20+lbs so to take off like that in dirt is not too bad.
look at it as it hits the 5 gallon bucket definetly not 1/8 scale. if it's legit it could be very cool depending on the final price .

Not sure where you did your further investigation at but you are 100% wrong.

The truck is real. It was video taped by Caster Racing USA. Vid was just released the day I posted it and is why there was no talk on the caster forum. Was kept secret for some testing till now. Still in testing stages and pretty much a teaser video as of now.

Maybe you should read this post before spouting off......Hakmazter is an admin at casterracing forums.
He bought stuff off of ebay for cripes sake.

OK. Let me clear it up for you. Hakmazter is not just a admin. He IS Caster Racing in the US and owns Caster Racing. So he is not just some guy trying to get Caster to build it. Yes he bought some stuff but it was for testing to see how stuff would work before actually doing all the real machine work and get it built. I know about that post, I have been on that forum since day one and I AM AN ADMIN on that site too. So I guess it was ok for me to Spout off.

if you look at the size of the bucket and the size of the truck you'll see the truck is not 1/8 scale but bigger. if you couldn't see that or figure it out on your own then you have bigger issues.

I know its 1/5th. But what does that have to do with anything I stated in my post? My SCT Rusty 3.3 can powerslide across a baseball diamond and hit a 5 gallon bucket. Not really that big of a deal.

you still didn't get my point.
comparing the size of the bucket to the truck you can tell it's not an 1/8 scale truck.

I dont think your getting my point, I know its 5th scale. And if the director can only compare the truck to a 5gallon bucket, then I feel sorry for the future of Caster Racing. I mean for gods sake take out the tape measure and give some increments. In my first post I was merely expressing my sarcasm for how crappy and old the same drifting shot got old.

The "Caster bucket"?

Caster is known for odd but cool product names. The truck looks better in the still pics in that vid than the moving ones. The Caster bucket better have a scale body like the SC10 deos if it wants to sell. All the odd shaped 1/5th stuff is getting old. Time for a scale 1/5 looking Corr/torque/sct truck.

Looks like the Caster bucket has plenty of get up and go.

Zero- I agree but the still pics (orange SCT in the middle of a powerslide) isnt the 'Bucket', its johnny Greeves truck from awhile back and someone just painted (very badly) over his paint scheme.

Like this one? Sadly, they handle like crap, cost too much and don't sell well. That's why all new SCTs are gonna have fully independent suspensions:
