LCG Slash 4x4 = The Soon Coming Traxxas 1/10 Rally Car?!!!!
Is this a joke or is this serious? Ken Block went to a Traxxas competitor and the car looks pretty darn good so I was trying to do some research on it when I found this:
[I]"New from Traxxas is the 1/10 Rally! A few weeks ago we mentioned that we had heard about a LCG Slash chassis coming soon from Traxxas. Well it looks like they went ahead and made a Rally car with it!
It will come with the TQi radio system, a Velineon brushless system, and boasts 60mph speeds! The new LCG 4wd chassis and Rally cross suspension should have it ripping up the dirt something fierce.
It will be available in three colors, red, blue, and green, and should be shipping very soon.
Rally is the ĎHOTí thing right now, and itís good to see Traxxas be able to react pretty quickly and come out with a product of their own. The lack of a licensed body is a bit surprising, but would of just added on more cost down the line for the consumer."[/I]
I hope this is serious, but Traxxas will keep my business then. I had a Slash for a few weeks before I returned it and picked up my XO-1. If this is true I will be able to semi-drift a car and still be able to afford to replace the tires!
Let me know if anyone has eny other information!
