    ECX8300 is Yellow not Blue. You have Blue up twice… :>

  2. Trevor "Chilly" Duncan says:

    Fixed it thanks.

  3. JatoTheRipper says:

    This looks to be the exact same thing as a Mini-T but with upgraded, separate electronics like the Mini Baja. Can you confirm that this is the Mini-T with the same chassis and suspension?

    What is the release date? I want one!

  4. Bobb says:

    it’s very close to the Mini-T some parts seem nicer, the suspension is not adjustable though, and the ESC/Receiver unit is a little smaller…
