    Buggy In Disguise??

    Is it just me or does the layout of the chassis look alot like a electric buggy does? It is like they designed a race buggy then put a slash body on it. Kind of smart, satisfy both worlds, the people who love buggy's get the design, even though they'll change the wheels, tires, body, and add a wing; and you satisfy the COOR lovers. I wonder if every track in the nation will have a class for the 4x4 like they do for the 2x4. Traxxas is very smart.

    That's what I'm hoping for. One of the other items I asked for was a single motor, single battery 4x4 buggy about the size of the slash. I'm betting we're going to see a buggy out of this chassis very soon and maybe a new 4TEC.

    Ihobby is coming up here in Chicago in just a couple of weeks. Just before the Last Ihobby Traxxas showed us all the Summit then introduced the Mini's at the show. I'm hopping they do this again. I need a new 4x4 buggy.

    Layout does look similar and it shouldn't be hard to do the /backslash conversion to get it to a buggy if you wanted.

    The layout looks nothing like a buggy to me, and I highly doubt they had any intentions of making to be convertible to a buggy, but it does look like it could be made into one pretty easily, the chassis is kind of awkwardly shaped for one, but I plan on buying for the sole purpose of making a backslash conversion if I can some class to race it in.
