  1. Wonder how different things are in it from a slash 4×4. Chassis looks narrow like a stampede. Wish they incorporated a roll bar to keep the body from cracking in half like the stampede does.

    Plastic sliders and listed at a 65mph+ truck… yeah, for about 18 seconds, then the axles grenade. At the very least… those tires/wheels will work on my stampede. :) Guessing stampede mip axles will end up working on it. The front hubs look the same, can’t see the rear ones very well.

    I wonder why they made it. Makes it so they are kind of competing with themselves for the slash/stampede group. HPI used to have a couple variations of 4wd 1/10st’s, but they are still hobbling along. Losi had the ten-t, not sure it still exists. They made the tenacity electric version which is kind of like the ten-t.

    Still cool to see. A 4wd nitro version with a 2-speed trans would be awesome though. Something noone has.
