New TRAXXAS 1/10 Rally with LCG Chassis

Have you seen the New Traxxas 1/10 Rally? It looks pretty sick and comes with an LCG Chassis! Any opinions on it yet?

looks pretty cool. i wonder what the wheelbase is? that would be cool if it was the same as the slash 4x4.

because they didn't have a 1/10 scale rally car (I think they got rid of the ken block car, because it's not listed on their website anymore. Maybe this replaced it.)

i kinda think traxxas should come out with a line of "race spec" vehicles. stuff that is gonna be more competitive on the track. they really have the rtr basher market cornered, but could benefit from a line of all new race worthy vehicles.

all the ken block rally car was a 1/16th rally with a limited editiong body and wheels. but why come out with a bigger version. but thats just my opinion.

i dont think traxxas will get into the race side of things anytime soon since alot of companies already deal with race vehicles. traxxas is going for the beginners and bashing for cheap. if they do start with race vehicles would be nice.

even if traxxas came out with a better 2wd platform for the sc craze. that would be cool.

would be nice for a better 2wd. but at the rate things are going looks like the next things is gonna be short course buggies like the ae sc10b that they came out with.

does look like fun but traxxas has dissapointed quite a bit for me. i know that they will most likely follow the scb soon. but the only thing that has my interest lately are the xo1 and the rally does a little. but time will tell what they will come out with.

I am looking to buy a rally once they come used as roller's hopefully, ITs nice to have an all plastic basher but the 4x4 slash wants to roll when you look at a turn. so hopefully this is much better! I just wish traxxas would stop using crappy plastic driveshafts that last for 30 seconds....

they probably made it because HPI now have the ken block. I think in 1/8th scale not 100% sure.

I checked this thing out at SEMA, the also have a new Slash coming out with the same chassis. This car is fully interchangeable with the 4wd slash. Very good for upgrades
