    Will someone PLEASE scan that mag and post it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If traxxas releases a rock crawler, I will be all over it. I been wanting a crawler because I live in rock country, but I didn't leave traxxas. I literally have a pile of rocks sitting not more than 200 feet from my bedroom.

    That would be sweet, I would get that in a heart beat! Maybe it will even have cantilever suspension like the revo?

    Nice. A Traxxas crawler. This I would be interested to see, but given the way dedicated rock crawlers are designed and built these days, with many of the best rigs being built using a variety of parts, from different manufacturers, plus some custom pieces, I see this new Traxxas model as a RTR crawler with decent, but not earth shattering capability. Similar, in other words, to an Axial crawler, perhaps, or maybe a Tamiya TXT-1. But, lets just wait and see.

    You know it doesn't necessarily mean traxxas is coming out with a new truck. IMO
    What are these "brakes" you speak of?

    Ya. It's on stairs.

    Pretty neat, though, that there are tracks on both facets of the steps.

    It is defently a crawler because it is a clawler mag and it shows stairs with tread marks going up it. Traxxas is dropping hints here. I bet this friday it will be released!
    I know one thing for sure, it is gonna be awsome!

    Ha ha! Watch, it'll end up being a truggy or something! Nah, it definitely suggests 'crawler' and as for the tire pattern, I'm not surprised. Most crawlers do not run super aggressive treaded tires. It's more about a soft, sticky tire compound. V treaded or super swamper looking tires usually don't offer half as much traction.

    That would be really good if traxxas made a crawler i would probably buy it soon after it came out. The way the tires are going it looks like it's going up the stairs not down them.

    I've seen that pic before and never thaught anything of it....The tire tread looks like the new tires on the T-maxx. I mean think about it Traxxas calls the T-maxx the "King of Monsters" with the headlines in the magazine it doesn't suprize me if its just a add for the T-maxx.

    Oh Come On!!!!! Can you at least tell us when Traxxas will tell us exactly what it is? Or whether it will be electric or nitro? But I would just be happy with a date.

    The only thing I wanna know is
    If it indeed is a crawler, will it have a solid axle ?
    ´cos my Rock racer/Crawler is already loaded with a VXL-3s,Velineon Brushless 3500kv motor, `pede tranny,
    E-Maxx drive shaft´s Revo rod ends and a TQ radio
    And I´d love to have a Revo diff in a solid axle to complement the other Traxxas bits and pieces
