I really wasn’t ready to discuss this….
enough rumor and speculation. I'll put an end to some of it any way.
prototype’s code name is "Rody Racetruck" or just “Rody” for the
man's engine that inspired it. It’ll be renamed in production. I’m leaning
towards “SuperMaxx RacerX”.
1/8th scale race truck is designed for high speed over rough terrain –
RACING in the ROUGH!
The goal being
to make the fastest thing that ever navigated a high-flying, rough-riding monster
truck track, yet when brought out to race your bug buddies on a bug track, they
will find a new contender for 'fastest on the track.'
so far shows we're very close to achieving all the goals. We've still got a ways
to go, but are zeroing in on a first generation production spec. Handling is
surperb! Flys like it's got wings and accelerates like a bat outta…well, you
get the idea.

‘bout that RTR guys.
addition to the camber, toe and ride height adjustments all Maxx type suspensions have,
Rody will also feature advanced:
is extremely high with our unique Double A design. The component tray is just
that and is not responsible for chassis strength – which is why it looks
projections look to be one and a half pounds lighter than my current racetruck,
SM1, which is RTR @10lbs w/ SMRW & bowties. We are looking to hit the 8.5lb
mark with the production truck - that’s the goal anyway.
one I'm driving is nearly entirely prototype.
it does use some bits from the current SM line most of the truck is brand new.
In it’s current form the only production item on it is the Servo Saver and a
couple Ofna pieces. Though in the proto, I’ve cobbled a few bits out of Maxx
of this technology will port over to the Maxx side and our intention is to do so
as time permits. Some bits will be ported out for the Maxx prior to Rody’s
there be a conversion kit to make your Maxx into a Rody? Hmmmm....Could beeeee…
all I’m prepared to say for now folks. Thanks for your time. We'll announce
details when they are ready to be announced.
Sorry in advance if this irritates
some of you, but we will not be revealing more details, dates or prices than we have
here. Really we are only answering some of the miss information flying about.
