Looks like a smaller DB to me. The cross-brace on the rear-cage of the DB that fits a spare tire, seems to be there. It looks asif there's a driver too... cool..

if it ís a 1/10 DB-like "Scorpion", I'd be really interested. The more towards scale buggies, the happier i am.

from the looks of it it looks like my new kyosho sand master the styling but they probably made it bigger to race the big size short course Buggies from losi and the new one from associated that's coming out .

Probably a 4x4 1/10 DB. They already have the ultima, so there's no need for another 2wd..
