    i'd love an 1/8 buggy or truggy, but it's probably a re-invent of an existing model. this is gonna drive me nuts.

    My guess is a new 1/5 scale vehicle. The movie shows dirt, so it's gonna be an offroad vehicle.

    but the slayer is just a short armed revo with little wheels. i hope it's an 1/8. i'll be disappointed if it's an e-slayer. they have enough trucks based on the revo.

    Well, they do say "you asked for it", so it must be something we have been asking for a long time.

    1/8 buggy could quite be a good possiblity. Or it could be a traxxas big block.

    idk, traxxas has really been going electric, much harder and quicker than other brands. But maybe, they are catching up (nitro-wise), either or, it's a sweet deal.

    Upgraded Slash to compete with the new entrants into SCT racing?

    Maybe with the 2.4 radio? 15T motor like the others?

    I'd like to see said picture.

    Meanwhile I'll be contemplating this throughout the week until it's released, only to be disappointed because I either don't have any interest in the new vehicle or if I do like it, I can't afford it

    they picked the 8th for a reason. i hope it's an 1/8. that would be AWSOME to be able to lend themselves to competitive buggy racing.

    Watched the clip a few more times. Based on the clips shown, I think we can safely assume that it's Brushless and offroad (obviously). But if you look at the dirt, there's a couple of spots that look like ribbed tire prints. So I dunno, I can't imagine they would release a 2wd truck...

    Needless to say I am excited to see. Christmas is coming up

    EDIT: SHOOT, I just realized: doesn't the Baja 5B have ribbed fronts? Are we possibly looking at 1/6th scale?!

    More good theories. I think the same. One reason why I think it's Velineon, is that the background is red/orange/yellow. And if you look back at the older VXL vids in the vault, the background is the same.

    And brad, you don't have a slash. But I understand.

    I think they think that that's enough revo chassis' out there. It could be, but I doubt it.
