    No, but the description goes to great lengths to make certain you know this model is brushed. This gives rise to the conjecture that there may be a version that will be brushless. Only Traxxas knows for sure.

    It's taken everything that I have in me not to buy a 1/16th Rally since they came out--it's only getting more difficult now with this version! I do have a bunch of room in that new shop of mine...

    I like it. I want to see if they have a brushless version.
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    I love that it is under $200.00, but I wish they had used hex screws instead of phillips... That will not stop me from getting one though.

    This is very cool. I love 1/18th scale and it's a completely new platform. Thank you for not inboard style shocks Traxxas!.

    I use to have a blast with my old HPI RS4 mini back in the day, and it was a bit limited. Imagine this lil guy with all of the accessories that will be available for it.

    I cant wait...

    But those are 1/27, much smaller than the 1/18 Rally.

    I can't imagine that the TRX plugs are too expensive at wholesale, but I'm guessing that they were trying to save every penny possible to keep the vehicle's price down.

    Quick easy fix. I'll be soldering a pair of Traxxas connectors.

    I think it would be too much to ask for but it would be nice to have the range of different bodies that they have for the mini-Z's
