Let's not get nuts here, I highly doubt that they will be able to keep up with a T4 of XXXT; they are half as wide, heavier, taller. Look at the videos again, see how tipsy they get when they corner hard.

Bet on it ? I ordered mine a loong, long, long, long time ago. However, Darren is a good guy as he has just recently refunded my payment at my request (no more patience). Let us know how the truck performs !

You guys shoud've stuck in there i just know how kickass this truck is gonna be. I'll admit the delays have sucked but they will all be worth it in the end since every delay let Darren make better changes. Yeah he could've released the prototype model months ago and just been happy, but Darren does'nt play that way . He wanted the truck to be the best it possibly could be and I'm confident the truck will far excede any expectations i or other customers had when we ordered in the 1st place

If I've learned one thing in our hobby it is patience ...

I dont know if anyone else from Germany ordered one of these trucks - this type of racing is pretty uncommon over here. I might be the only one crazy enough to hold up Thunder Tech's banner in the old world - Anybody else out there?

I have alot of patience but this thing has been delayed for over half a year....enough already. Its going to be this..it's going to be that...just be something already

Enjoy yours when you get it, my money and interest has since gone elsewhere

Now thats optimism

It's an unfair comparison, those rc's are designed for optimum performance, im sorry but i dont believe the thundertech would even hold its own

The Pro-2 is designed to be scale to a Pro-2 in both size, shape and performance. It is no comparison to a non-scale stadium truck, period.

What parts will be molded? From the models I have seen everything is made from CF plate and bolted together with crossmembers. All the plastic, suspension arms, axle, etc, were off-the-shelf items.

If they are wanting to mold all their own parts, that's a BIG investment. Probably not the wisest investment either, I don't know if it would pay off in the long run. How any are they going to sell at that price to begin with?

I see; the radio tray, gearbox, and front bulkhead look to be molded parts. They appear to be putting the battery up front; most 'prerunners' on here have the battery mounted over the rear axle, I've curious to see how they works. I don't know how happy the servo will be without any bellcranks to take up some of the abuse.

The tranny in particular looks good, I hope they release it as a separate kit. Keep the price reasonable, somewhere between the price of a Rustler/Stampede tranny and an RC4WD R2 and I'd buy one.

I think if they offered a simplified version of the truck, without the entire cage-like assembly, that could sell really well. A really bare-bones version, without shocks, rear axle, and body (a lot of their potential customers would have something they could use in their 'garage' anyway) would probably sell like gangbusters.
