Let's See:

Twin 550 motors

2-link front and rear suspension

Nifty solid axles

1/8 scale diffs

I honestly think this truck will be more popular in the electric verison than it has been with the nitro crowd. Maybe it's just me, but I can't wait to see what Kyosho has in store for us.

Kyosho has a release date of Jan '04

Price is to be determined.

have you heard of google SEARCH

Really? Maybe that i could all see that by looking at the picture is i basicly a electric Mad Force.I knew all that stuff i was more intrested in the PRICE.You dont have to be a smart ass.

The mad force would have been way more popular if the Price would have been more on the base of the other truck in its class.

Come on man....... that's not what I'm doing...... I was just showing a little pride that an electric pilot could build somthing that didn't require balsa and epoxy and survive!

I know, I'm just pulling your chain. The truck looks tough. Towerhobbies already has it listed in their speedmart flyer for sale. I guess the EMaxx has some competition.
