    New Traxxas *something*....1/5th scale or 1/8th scale buggy rumors

    Post by TeamAssociated_Kevin on Fri Oct 28, 2011 6:48 pm

    Hey Sean, do you know what the big new item Traxxas is coming out with might be? People are saying its a)big and b)$800-$1000. That would make it by far the most expensive truck they have released....ever, I think.

    If you know you must tell us!

    Traxxas is keeping very tight lipped on this one.I tried last week to get a answer or hint and could not get any info.There was talk of a new monster truck coming but that rumor faded away fast.

    If it is a 1/5 scale it wouldn't surprise me sense they have had one in the past,called the monster buggy.
    If i had to guess and this is just a guess i think its some kind of buggy,not sure on what scale to go with .

    The rumor I heard is its electric, but big. So maybe 1/5th scale electric wonder how that would work out. Two 700 size can brushless motors and a two 6s lipos ya baby

    It may be a large scale.Considering large scale is less than 5% of the rc truck/buggy business it would be a limited item.A $1000 traxxas product would also turn off a lot of people.In that price range there will be more option from other companies.

    A part number has been listed for the "new" what ever it is .
    The retail price is over $900+ which means that it could sell for in the $650-$750 range.This is just a guess on what little information has been given so far.This could all change next Wednesday when they say what it is.
