good point, it's not inconceivable that the current model be discontinued and replaced with 2.4ghz model. i would think we would have seen new autoscales at least though and we haven't. the escalade was the last new autoscale for the overland as the dodge ram was for the monster. oddly enough, the ram came after the escalade and we haven't heard about the monster being discontinued.

another thing to consider is they are still supporting the line with parts. i doubt you will find them in any qnty as it will really depend a shops willingness to order/stock parts for a discontinued line.

Judging by the part number, they may have made an adaptation to the MA-010 racer for use with overland bodies... to give them AWD... That could be why the overland as we know it is discontinued(?) Thanks for the information, I would love to hear more about this

yeah, i thought that very odd too. maybe it's just a typo? it would be awsome if they finally made the overland 2.4 and awd. i'll not get my hopes up until we see more information available.

hmm... maybe they thought of doing something like this... i know, i know it's a buggy... but i guess you can adopt an overland body to it... (design by forum member dantep)

NICE! It looks like a Losi 8ight for mini z! I just installed a 03 board in my OL and the main thing I noticed right away is the overall response it has with a speedy 07. That I tested on my mini 96. I cant wait to open it up a bit at my local large track.(http://actionrcspeedway.com/)

It also looks like the 1/24 Redcat buggy:

looks like it was simply a typo. a picture is now up on the blog and it's just a 2.4 conversion of the overland.

i do hope it has the mr-03 2.4 board with coreless servo motor to provide some needed umpf behind the turning with larger wheels/tires.

By the looks of it, it looks like a standard ASF board (one ICS port). And the servo box looks the same as the old one. I guess the AWD part number was incorrect.

Arch, your link is not working.

Overland NOT Discontinued

So this thread starts really negative for the modest overland but infact the 2.4ghz is amazing new and really welcome info that parts and new stuff is still on the way, great work kyosho.

asc wise I thought some short course bodies would be fun, maybe even some lexan light weight bodies and lots of new scale wheel and tries, since some of mine are starting to crack and perish.
