This is the same as the XT truck, but with the sand rail body and cage. 30.5 cc engine, 4x4.

Looks interesting.... With a tire swap it could be fun in the dunes.

It will be within 5 months for sure. The chassis and everything is already in production for the X Series. All they need is the body and cage, which are already tooled up.
