About the author

About Matt:I think it’s safe to say I’ve done a little bit of everything in RC. That said, I predominately race off-road and my current passion is short course. One of my all-time favorite classes is oval carpet racing. Besides racing, I can often be found working on one of my many never-complete projects, and it seems I have an ever growing collection of rock crawlers—specifically scale crawlers.

    I think it will be a 4wd SC10…jmo ;)

    Unfortunately, manufacturers use these tactics unsuccessfully to build up hype for a new revision or slight modification of an existing platform.

    Just like the boy who cried wolf, I don’t really get excited about these countdown hype announcements anymore… (except maybe RCCA’s revamp…).

    The market dictates that the platform will be (and in order of probability):

    1. 1/8 scale based on Worlds platforms
    2. 1/10 scale 4×4 SC
    3. 1/10 scale 2×4 buggy to challenge Losi’s latest offering

    and in my wildest hopes and dreams….

    Another major manufacturer that jumps into 1/5 scale.

    Matt, I have to ask you, what is keeping other major manufacturers out of 1/5 scale right now? Do you know of anything in development?

    i also think 1/10 4wd sc. i hope thats what it is. dont think it’l be a 2wd buggy as they already have the b4, an b4.1. short course is not just a fad, i beleive it’s here to stay. me thinks associated also has been patient, with the market analysis. It has to be a 4wd short course truck.

    I am about 80% sure it will be a 4×4 SC just look at the picture underneath haha

    if it is im gonna be mad because i just bought an SC8e

    With Losi just releasing their 4x4SC, it’d be kinda stupid for AE to not come out with something that competes. I would love for my SC10 to have a 4×4 sibling!

  7. Kevin K. says:

    the only thing losi has going for it is the eight SERIES of “racing” vehicle because it can “compete”. Team Associated is bar none the best company around for true racing vehicles.

    New hint to the Associated Area 51 car: “4 wheels never had it so good” What do you think it is??? I know;)

    Knowing AE it will be anounset but you wont see it for over a year!

  10. Mark L says:

    come on guys …….TA come out with something NEW yeah right ……..what will it be based on ????? a b44 or rc8b……no thanks

  11. David Bowman/ Turtle Dave says:

    I can’t think of ANYTHING more exciting than AE releasing a 1/5 scale truck!! Now that Losi threw their hat in the ring, we definitely need AE to do the same. I think MOST people don’t realize how BIG 1/5 scale has become.

  12. KEVIN says:

    please bring back the sc8 nitro that truck is the beast
