    New Traxxas Vehicle Teaser



    http://www.bigsquidrc.com/sneak-peak...axxas-vehicle/

    My money is on a Velenion 4-Tec with a new TSM system featuring a drift mode.

    Honestly, I'm hoping for a 1/6 E-Revo using X-Maxx parts. Other than that, I'm lost to what this could be.

    EDIT: Ok I put the picture into a photo editer and I turned up the brightness and contrast, and there's a hidden swopping line from the bottom of what looks like a front fender up to the rear... It looks like a Axial Yeti almost...

    Mustang has a longer hood. I'd say closer to the Ford GT

    Here is the same image but I manipulated the contrast and filter on it.

    That would be schweet... But, I think the only solid axle rig we'll see from Traxxas any time soon is the dragster.

    Someone may be onto something.

    If this is indeed the case, be prepared about the complaining about another on-road car and not something off road or solid-axle scaler or submarine.

    That'll be me complaining lol. Nearest paved parking lot for me to rip an on-road RC is 10km away lol.

    I think the rear fender lines and that windshield slope lines up nicely with what I think it'll be, the Ford GT. Coupled with the partnership with Ford and all that, it's a good possibility. I'm not sure if it's the angle of the picture but the Ford GT side windows aren't all that big like it is in the teaser shot

    The body definitely looks like it's intended to be on-road. Thinking re-invigorated 4-tec also

    Looking at the back window, there appears to be the head of a nitro engine. Could it be an XO-1 sized on-road nitro or just anomalies in the picture?

    If it is there will need to be a gasser or a huge nitro engine to push it

    It's unlike traxxas to do teasers. This is the way to do it. I'm expecting a big on road car.
    This will TOTALLY work, saw a guy on YouTube do it

    They did it with the XO-1; though I agree that it is something they don't normally do.

    They did it with the Revo with the spinning 'V' on the homepage as well. Wasn't there also a teaser for the X-Maxx?

    yep i remember the Xo-1 teaser. NO ONE and I mean NO ONE expected a 100mph RC car. Don't think there was a teaser for the X-maxx, Just 2 months of salivating waiting for it to release.

    I've been looking for one; there was a teaser a year or two ago of something throwing roosters in the dirt. Don't remember which truck it was though.

    I'm hoping for a more affordable on road car. Like the Rally only not based on the Slash. Something to compete with the HPI RS4 platform.

    Just curious...Where is the video? Unless I'm missing something, I didn't see it on the homepage.

    EDIT: Just watched the "best of 2016" video on the home page. I see they tucked it in the end.
    Sweet video by the way!

    I remember the spinning "V" they had back in '07 for the for the Rustler/Bandit/Stampede VXL. Kept everyone waiting a few days until the announcement. That thread had gone over 50 pages, haha!

    The unfortunate aspect with this new model...I can see them waiting until April-May to reveal and/or release to continually keep the buzz around Traxxas. It also wouldn't take anything away from the updated X-Maxx in late-Feb. Here's to hoping I'm wrong


    Almost seeing lines of a re-imagined Zarooq sand racer...but wouldn't make a whole lot of sense because it'd be more/less a Slash..

    You guys... relax... it's just the shape of the box for the 3axis gimbal lol��

    In all honesty I really hope it's not just another body on a recycled chassis/platform. I don't see why they haven't entered the 1/8 scale buggy market.

    Although it is promising that they have a 4s battery now. I can't see them having engineered that battery just for one truck

    I'm guessing it's a 8s Xo1 or E-Revo replacement.

    I also made a brighter version, it's a little less pixelated.



    I am hoping to see that Zarooq sand racer style!
    Aww, SNAP. You crashed into the curb at 100mph.

    I just want to know what month/quarter they're going to release more information on it!

    "Coming in 2017" just makes for too much anticipation -- Especially because this is a new level of teasing from Traxxas
