    well see if i get one would probably get some mini slash wheels for it and trim the body to make it fit and raise it up a little bit then go run it off road.

    Why not? When Traxxas introduced the Slash there was no spec class for it and almost over night every track around created a spec class for the Slash. Same thing could happen with the Rally VXL.

    Why not just get a little Slash for that purpose??

    No, It's a MERV/Mini Slash with even shorter a-arms and links and street tires. All I did was put street tires on my MERV last year and lower it. Same effect, just wider and more stable.

    I agree with tstmonkey, the rally vxl is just another 1/16 scale with a few tweaks, no major breakthroughs, most sad is no 1/8 scale brushless system. I could see getting this car if I didn't already have the two other 1/16 VXL's.

    This is exactly what we'll see because of this car, just look at what an inexpensive rc like the Slash has done to most of your local tracks.
    This is going to do for carpet/indoor what the Slash did for offroad/outdoor.
    It fits the budget of the average consumer who wants to race but just can't drop a grand to show up at the local track whether inside or outside. And how many of us racers who have no problem dropping a grand on a buggy/truggy (mostly due to our rc addiction) own a Slash 2x4 or Slash 4x4 or any SCT for that matter just because it was easier than dropping another grand on another car and are having a ton of fun racing a SCT.

    Just build it TRAXXAS and the CLASS will grow!!!
