New SVT full-size truck FTW!

Hot off the presses new very good stuff. Truck without camo, and the 6.2 will become an option after it initial release.

Needless to say I am pumped that SVT is going to build a new truck, and if you have never played O/R in a 4x4 you will think its fun as hell I guarentee it and I think you should try it. Just don't try Jeep jumping with you in the back seat of the Jeep.
I wonder how good this thing will be in other forums of O/R other than desert racing. In the mud, on trials, rock climbing, etc. It is pretty wide so it may not make the best truck for tight trials.

I was fortunate enough to go to the Baja 1000 this year, and I snapped a picture of both the production Raptor, which was being used as a chase truck, and the Class 8 modified version, which competed in the race.

Both were pretty B/A up close. I'd buy one. :)
