They look good. It might be my first Traxxas the body looks good and the clipless design on 1/18 is dare I say... an inovation It might give the gelande a run for its money at only 150US$

Hardbody Landrover or Bronco
180 sized brushed motor
Included 2s 750mah lipo
Oil filled shocks
metal servo? For a Traxxas ?
probably more...
sadly it includes bushing not bearings

I kinda like it. I dont like rx esc combos, so all electronics will be binned or sold on ebay. I wish they would show full chassis shots.
The link between the 2 videos and theres a thing you have to slide to the left

Or this one theyre both the same link

Neat. I like them, and I'm pretty sure they will be better than scx24's.

Also, bushings are fine.

What would make you think that? I'm sure that'll buy but I'm not a performance orientated

I'm sure that once it's released, there will be aftermarket bearing kits available as well as other scale accessories.

Traxxas's MO lately is to wait until others (cough*axial*cough) get their stuff as good as possible and then release something a bit better. I'm talking durability/quality, not necessarily performance. They waited until the 1/10 scale crawler market was in full swing, and then came out with the TRX4.

can't blame em for that. Gotta get a piece of the pie. At least theyre not directly copying kits. 🤷‍♂️
