    Saw this on RC Soup...not much info here and I guess we'll find out what it is in a few days.

    However in the meantime anyone care to venture a guess? I'm hoping an Axial competitor...maybe another source of axles.

    I hope you are right John.

    I hate the "guess what's coming" and-or previews of nothings. ARGH

    Always glad to see new things, it's the tease I get irritated at.

    I just hope that it's better than the Tamiya USA reveal.

    looks like something based off a actual baja truck setup could be interesting

    Looks like I will be adding another buggy to my ever growing fleet. I am really digging the solid rear axle, funny Axial did not do that on the EXO...

    Jeez-zus!! I found my new go fast!! I just saw this on the RCDriver FB page!! Have you guys seen the Vaterra Glamis 1/8th Scale 2WD Buggy? "At the center of its design is a viscous ring differential that prevents wheel spin on loose surfaces when you're cornering hard or hammering the throttle." I'm a 4WD guy, but this is tempting, since I'm so close to the beaches.

    Now THIS looks like a cool brand. That TwinHammers buggy is something people have been wanting from a company for a while. Gonna be interesting to see how they hold up.

    This buggy looks cool.. One dosn't have to do what the R/C Crawler guys been doing for a while now.
    By buying the Axial Exo and Wraith and splicing the chassis and cage to have fron IFS and solid rear.

    I like the glamis too but I already took the rear cage off my scb and if I threw a exo terra tail fin on it I would then have a glamis on the cheap lol.

    wich was part of plan prior to seeing the glamis it's either that or I am going to fab up some mud/wheel wells on the rear like the pulling tractors have over there rear tires.

    but yeah it look's exactly like my scb with a tail wing on but $300-400 more.

    it's neat but I would rather just buy another scb over the glamis to look the exact same for half the price.

    I thought the other day I seen a sneak at their comng monster also but it was ugly and looked more like a pede setup then a monster.
