And 12mm hexes will give you a lot of wheel options. As long as this comes in at a reasonable price, it could be a real winner.

They come with metal and plastic versions too. That intrests me. If Jang reviews this and say it's good I'll definetly buy it. And they come with brushless and brushed.
If you ask me where one year's worth of money went I will tell you to go to my hobby shop.

I love the idea that there are other 1/14 Rally bodies out there to choose from and they will likely fit this car:

I want to believe, but I it seems very unlikely. The WB/width is 225mm/210mm - almost square. There are several tamiya and HPI M-chassis bodies with a 225mm wheelbase, but the width is only 175-180mm. Those Nikko shells are proper scale, which would make them far too narrow to fit this chassis, even if the WB was spot on.

They should make one in 1/10th scale. /than i'd buy one to try out 4wd buggies.

I have to admit that looks reeeeeeeeeeally cool to me. Clearly very extremely strongly inspired by the Mini-8, but fingers crossed, hopefully it has no copied parts.
First thing I thought as well. If it's priced right and not cheap built then they won't be able to build them fast enough. imo the mini8 and the Vendetta are both way overpriced.
I officially have too many vehicles to fit in this sig.
Brands I own: Associated, Duratrax, Exceed, Losi, RedCat, Silverlit, Syma, Tamiya, Tomy, Traxxas, Turnigy, Xmods and several generics

If it's under $200, it will be fair. If it's under $150, they'll sell like hotcakes.

This is assuming there isn't some horrible design flaw somewhere that makes it borderline unusable. That is also assuming that Tacon (or somebody in the states) actually does start selling them. We are getting pretty worked up over a single facebook picture here...

If this thing is fairly durable, I think I will buy it. Looks very interesting.
