    Traxxas 1/5 Scale Gas RC??

    I was just wondering if anyone has heard any rumors about Traxxas bringing a gas 1/5 scale into the line up. Just hoping since HPI has the Baja that other main stream companies might bring more into the market.

    Well that's a shame would be interesting to see what kind of design they could put out for a 1/5 gas. I would almost like to just see a larger 1/5 scale Revo that ran on gas.

    The monster buggy is old and outdated. That's why traxxas isn't making it anymore.

    You also have to figure that the market for large scale vehicles is small, and has a limited age group that can actually afford to play with them.

    That's the big factor right there. I would kill for a 1/5 scale buggy (gas is so cheap right?! ) But at 16 and making $7/hr part time, there's no way I could afford it along with all the other things I like (mmmm Taco Bell...).

    that was one of my ideas, going gas instead of nitro (but car was too expensive) and after i went nitro i saw the monster buggy gone

    I would love to see Traxxas make a new Gas truck not a buggy. I could never afford one but it would be cool.

    And a spaceship too!

    Seriously guys, almost everyone that has chimed in so far has said "It'd be cool, but I don't have the money." Traxxas has been a mainstream company, and keeps with the times. (slash/slayer are exceptions) If there were a bigger demand for a 1/5 scale vehicle, I'm sure it would be produced already.
