i just saw yesterday that ae is also making a new version of the rc18, called the rc18b, that looks very similar and 4wd and all. maybe that's old news though. this is all good stuff to see more small scale offerings though. if only a 1/28th scale 4wd buggy would come too. i imagine in a year or so we'll see one.

I also hear it is going under a bunch of different names. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

that Dtx Buggy is based on the Mini Quake chassis, so basic chassis upgrades are already out there ;) and even the same ESC and Motor, so it should be pretty quick even stock, i know a stock Mini Quake will almost keep up with a stock TC3

Would that be Duratrax, A-Tech, Schumacher, LRP, Tamiya.... If the Duratrax buggy is like the A-Tech, I'd get a Losi MLST. Oh wait, I already did. Of course, I already own a couple of KMIs.

The AE18B basically has different shock towers so the buggy body and wing can be mounted on an AE18T.
