They have stated that the first vehicle in the new lineup will be the TR-MT8E Monster truck .
So what is it and where did it come from ? The OEM for this Truck is Team Magic and its model name is E6III HX . www.teammagic.com
If you don't know who Team Magic is that's understandable they are best known for their onroad cars and don't have a huge following compared to many manufactures in the United States . The good news is that the E6 Series of trucks has been in production for a good while and the Trooper version seemed to develop a decent following due to its durability .
One rub that may develop is a lack of speed as noted by Aussie RC Playground while testing the E6III HX . Previous brushless E6 models that I have seen had 6s capable ESC's where the E6III HX has a 4s capable ESC .
All in all the truck should be a good platform and I hope they announce the MSRP and spec sheet soon so we can see how the cost stacks up compared to the other 1/8th scale trucks on the market from Traxxas,HPI,Thundertiger,Team Losi , Team Associated ,Arrma , and ETC.
