    This looks incredible, way out of my cost bracket though – Would love to have a go at building it if they bring out a kit version.

    Aha, in my haste I hadn’t even noticed that it was an RTR.  I too shall be interested should a kit version be released.  I do like the look and stance very much.

    It’s very shiny – just like the new forum! 🙂

    Looks great, but more for a 1/14th truck owner?

    Hehe, cheers!   I’m not keen on the battery visible in the back and I’m not quite sure what to make of the terminal block.

    I would love that to go with my 1/14 trucks.

    It looks superb but rc4wd do seem to have made a few strange choices though.

    I avoid rtr or artr as 99% of the time I end up pulling them in bits to sort out the issues that have been caused by the factory speed building.

    Fingers crossed they do a kit version that’s a more realistic price.

    Agreed, I usually avoid RTR as well, especially from RC4WD, they never seem to put them together properly.

    im gonna be critical here, overall I like it though its not really my thing..

    What Im not so keen on its the mating of the cab to rear.. i dont like that gap near the top, I think if they had tapered the rear section in at the top to match the cab it would be so much better.. it just makes it look too stuck on like this.. theres an awful lot of red on that too 🙂

     

    no decal kit?

    I see what you mean Al, the bulge at the top now you mention it just makes the back look like a plastic add on.  It’s so close to being right and I like that RC4WD are doing something like this.  I do wonder who they consult with when creating new products however as they always seem to get something wrong.

    yep theres always something retrocosm.. I’m curious to see how their cable operated diffs work.. hopefully they’re successful and may transfer them onto the 1/10 scales too.. not sure if i like the “held in place with a ziptie” on the springs though.. also wondering if these are stock strength leafs or the softer red ones like the previous red ones

    Al..
