        I've noticed.


        Meh, it really doesn't suprise me Duratrax is jumping in the game. Why not from thier view point.

        It will get really good when the big dogs jump in...but I figure that is a few years off still.

            Hmm interesting.. For some reason I think I will wait and see what all Traxxas comes up with..
            Hard to belive that they dont have somthing in the works by now...
            They just came out with the Slash, so they hopped into the stadium style truck market with Losi.. seems the logical step is to come out with a crawler....also kind of ties in with their wanting to do things that are "real" in the motorsports world...

              I'm willing to bet that if Traxxas builds a crawler, instead of using all of the 'pede & Revo & other parts that we use as hop-ups, they end up half-assing together a weak POS that'll break every time it binds!

                i wouldn't be surprised to see traxxas come up with a shafty super with axles based on maxx parts! which actually would be a good thing, IMO. just think, how many half decent LHS's have lots of maxx parts in stock?

                with the exception of it coming RTR, probabally labeled with a top speed of 110mph, and bringing in the whole uncreative "do it for me" crowd, i am interested in seeing what traxxas offers up rock crawlers.

                however, if i get economic stimulus check, i have a feeling that one of these duratrax's will end up in my hands...

                  Re: well, there goes the neighborhood....

                  Personally I think I would be inclined to either go with a slash, or another WK... I have beat the heck out of mine and am super happy with it...
                  I might pick up one of the no electronics ones and build it up using the knowledge thatI have and the HPI conversion set just to have a rig to bring to comps that others can run around and see what is possible with a ATR rig that they can modify and turn into a capable crawler.
                  Of course you can always just get the axial but I am partial to the WK....

                    That is highly doubtful. Hate to say it but other than XTM's new rig, there isn't much in the way of supers out there. Notice how Kyosho has pulled the plug on the super they were working on?

                    IF and I shall repeat IF Traxxas does anything it will be an RTR 2.2 classed rig. Duratrax, OCM/Berg, Yokomo, and Axial all came out as 2.2s.....

                          actually, g-made/junfac have 4 different kits with there super beefy looking clod style axles:

                          and, it's actually not badly priced for an ARR kit....
