Looks like a mix between a crawler and a monster truck. Hoped the price would have been a bit lower, but it looks great! Looks scale sorta.

$200 kinda seems like a lot considering it's 1/12 scale, brushed and comes with a NiMH pack.

I agree, 200 seems like a lot for a 1/12. If it was 1/10 I would get one it looks so cool! But 1/12 is too small

Ha! I actually love the looks. Great for the Halloween season. All it needs is that "special" license plate.

I love this thing. It's everything that I have been looking for.

I'm not "scale enough" to really care about how great my Trail Finder 2 looks. I'm also not looking for anything to do any serious crawling.

All I want is something that's easy to lug around, looks pretty cool, and is fun to drive on the trail. This truck is all of that for me.

My wife really likes going out on the trails with me, but I've been down to one trail truck for a while now. I think I may try to move that and get one of these for me, and one of the original ECX Barrage trucks for her. I can probably get nearly enough for both of them by selling my TF2.

Yes, it's pretty "eviiile" looking. I'm not looking for a hard-core crawler, either, just something to fool around with that looks neat when it's too windy to fly. There's a nifty little rock crawler course at a public park not far from me where I can fool around with it and scare the neighbors.

I wish it was a little cheaper! I'd get one

Why do people keep saying it's expensive? It's $200 less than an SCX10 II, and it performs really well for it's size and price (look at ecx barrage run videos, it's essentially the same thing besides body and tires.)

Yeah I'm not sure what price they're expecting. I think $199 is a good price. I watched a Facebook live about it and it's actually upgraded over the regular Barrage, too. It's got a 390 motor as opposed to the 370 in the original, and they said the servo and servo mount are now for full 1/10th servos instead of the "shorty" set on the regular Barrage.

Oh I didn't know that, the servo was an annoying problem originally (easy fix though)it's nice that they straightened it out. I heard the stock motor was pretty decent, but burnt out after a while, maybe the 390 will hold up better. I was going to buy a barrage a few months ago, but then I realized I don't really have anywhere to run it.

ECX is what got me into this hobby, and I have a special place for their stuff in my heart. The Barrage was on my radar but my buddy got an SCX-10 II so I wanted something equal and went with the Trail Finder 2. Now, over a year later, he's still not done building his SCX and my TF2 just sits. I'll probably go with a standard one for my wife and the Doomsday for me.

I'm really looking forward to trying this contraption out on the local crawling course.
