wow guys, its just a new body, calm down. its not like Traxxas is trying to advertise a completely new vehicle. Just a body. Im sure there are some Robbie Gordon fans that are thrilled they can now have a body modeled after his truck on their slash.
(2) 2.5 Rustlers
3.3 T-Maxx currently engineless, going to be replaced with something not a 3.3
Evader EXT2 converted to brushless of course
Jammin SCRT10 brushless hobbies 120amp esc/tacon 3660 4000kv
Losi MRC using stock chassis but otherwise practically completely custom

I'm in for one. Not a lot of H1 based bodies available anymore...

Taking a little longer of a look at it now - it slightly resembles a Toyota Tundra to me. They may tweak it and add some actual licensed Hummer / AM General features to it once it gets approval and goes to production, hopefully.

It's supposed to be an H3.

Oh. Guess I should have read the info better. Hehe. I think I would still paint it up in H1 style. It looks more like the original and less like the bloated H2.

Something about this... I dunno. Something is up that I can't quite put my finger on that makes me want to call "fake! fake!" on this one...

Will update if I figure out why I am suspicious.

If its fake then Speed Energy Drink was fooled too. There are more pictures on their FB page which where I assume the OP got them.

I'll be first in line for one....I am a huge Dakar fan and know a guy that raced in it this year on a bike. I don't care for Robby Gordons personality much but boy can he drive that Hummer!

When he was coming down the hill into Iquique Chile his co-driver (desert racing legend Johnny Campell) closed his eyes as they passed 140mph. The following video is of that downhill.

Direct imbed wouldn't work for some reason.

Would LOVE to have one of those bodies and am kinda regretting having a Slash 4x4 instead of the 2wd that would be more realistic for this body. Oh well, I'll make due.

Is there this much fuss when Tamiya releases an existing touring car with a new body?
^ That.

Currently, Tamiya has had at LEAST 50 body variants for the various TT-01 models, EXCLUDING the RTR XBs. No one is mad at them for that.
