Something to do with water given the water droplets and all. Possibly a boat or some type of H2O proof truck.

...Hovercraft?

...lawsuit from Trinity?

My guess is a brushless VXL-powered boat.

Hopefully it's something to do with cars. It would be a bit disappointing if it's something to do with a boat.

I don't think it has to do with a boat at all. That would be one weird looking hull with that design, and it doesn't resemble a hull either. It looks like some kinda Revo or Jato body. The raised portion would make me believe its a car body, since that on a hull would serve no other purpose but to create drag, which would be stupid.

here is my post on traxxas forums

Quote:
Here are my thoughts,

Revo race edition/Slayden edition complete with sway bars and center diff and side exhaust.
E-Revo with a 6s model of the VXL.
Ejato with a reversible transmission and reconfigurable battery box, for mid motor and rear motor configs. (X-6 style)
revamped SRT VXL Jato shocks.
finally the Remake on the Emaxx we really need.

Others have said 1/8 buggy or truggy, I don't think so. traxxas is a small block company and i don't see it changing (Not that it wouldn't be welcome)

Those are what i'd like to see. But with my luck, it'll be a hopped up 4Tec
if its the E-jato or the SRT, I'll be on the list to get one as soon as they let us


Work because i gotta, play because i wanna

People here hate Nitro, I love it. I start it, run it about 50 ft from me and it dies, I go after it. Perfect exercise

He asked what NEXT was not what your wish list was. . It would be real cool if it was a new bigger brushless truck but i'd hate to see the price tag if it was. May be the water means it's going to be a water cooled setup.

Well, its all speculation till Traxxas releases it. Why not throw a few wishes in to the mix. Honestly, the only parts, I know are coming out are the wing mount and swaybars. Remember the big V? It wasn't a car truck or boat.

Traxxas just love doing this to us! I bet the employees just sit there watching the forums, having a good laugh at our ideas and speculations lol.

As for me, I hope it's a brushless Revo/E-Maxx, or something along those lines...but I really don't know.

The fastest growing market right now seems to be 1/8th, so if they are market driven then thats what its going to be. If they are customer driven, it'll be an electric/brushless version of one of their existing trucks or cars (possibly even the 4-tec).

And now that I've thought more about it, I think it would really be a benefit to have Traxxas enter the 1/8th market. After researching which 1/8th truggy I wanted, there is really a lack of differentiating engineering technology in the 1/8th field. All of the current buggys/truggys share the same basic systems/layout, most of them resembling the mariage of a 4wd pan car with an RC10. Nothing near as advanced as the Revo, possibly even a Savage.


Losi 8T 1.0, Savage Flux - XL style, LST XXL, Muggy, 3.3 E-Revo Conversion and sitting outside 425hp, 831 Tq Dodge Ram Turbo Diesel. It SMOKES
