lets dissect it for a moment....

2wd? "new lcg chassis" (whicjh makes no sense) first off, they've had "lcg" nitro chassis' for a while, namely the venerable nitro rustler and the jato.

now if my money were on a power plant i would say it would have a 2.5, not a 3.3, thats just stupid as you cant really put near any of that power down on a 2wd nitro with those silly 2.2/3.0 tires atleast not outside of asphalt which brings us back to the jato.

as for a chassis, if this is legit, its based on the nitro rustler, its the same front clip and rear arms and the same all around geometry but shorter wb (same as the e-rusty) so it would be better to call it a nitro slash and base it off the nitro rustler since the 2 share a lot of the same suspension parts.

They just had to give the SC10GT some competition.

And I want to know when that Ram body will be available clear.
