    Talking Traxxas 1:5 Sale?

    I would like to know what is taking Traxxas so long to build/design a 1:5 scale truck!? What's everyone else's opinion of Traxxas building a 1:5 scale. Would you buy one or think its a waste of time and money?

    all we can do is wait and eventually they'll come up with something. they already have an XO1 1/7 scaler to start off with.

    If they make a 1/5 scale truck, I really hope it will come with a new gas, or big block nitro engine, or if it's electric, I hope it's a 1/5 scale Summit!!

    I would be interested in a 1/5 scale brushless electric Slash. Been looking at the HPI electric 1/5 scale trucks for some time now.

    1/5th scale Slash 4x4 Ultimate. Use a blacked out Castle 1/5 system on 6s, or a good gas engine, or a V8 nitro made out of 3.3s.
    And there he goes with the carbon...

    i would say a system that handles 8-10s would be nice since traxxas only makes fast rc's. 8s is fast but 10s would be insane. castle has the system at 8s why not 10s they have the know how right?
