I hope not.. Finally it seems like there's not a new truggy coming out every month, so you know what's what..

Losi is probably a good bet to come out with an electric trug.. Associated already has an E-kit, and they just updated the RC8T..

It's been mainly new electric buggy releases...bunches of them. The truggies will likely follow from the same brands that are releasing the buggies right now, but I don't know if they'll be available by x-mas. The mfrs might want to let the market buy up the buggies first before introducing more product, which may mean a delay in E-truggy releases.
You can always pick up a nice nitro roller kit and a good conversion kit to make your own.

Why would you be leary of the Caster? It is the best one out there. Just because they are a small company and aren't in every store like Traxxas.

I know they are just sitting back and riding out the economy for the time being. They have a 1/10 buggy that will release soon, so they aren't going anywhere.

You can easily just pick up any nitro roller and convert it, Pretty easy and not to hard. I would also be a bit leary of the caster line. IMO I think there just lacking in quality and also there electronics..I mean they use Maxamps batteries and Hobbywing setups...[:'(]

caster is lacking in quality. just the electronics. they more then likely choose those electronics to bring the price down. The caster has just as much durability if not more the the mugen mbx5t which is a tank. Ive seen many caster cars and there is absolutely nothing to worry about
