LiveRC reports – “Amongst all of the racing, and new products spotted at this weekend’s ROAR Offroad Electric Nationals, one new prototype that has really grabbed our attention is the all-new Venom 2wd buggy! Taylor Petersen is behind the wheel of the new buggy, proving that this is a truly race-inspired car. We took some time with lead engineer and good friend from down under, Andrew Bolton, for the inside scoop on the new buggy!
LRC: Thanks for taking a few minutes to chat about the new buggy! How long has it been in development?
ANDREW: We started around March this year and have had the kits were running now for about 5 weeks. We have just been tweaking the plastics and still working on that at this time. Just trying to get the right mix of strength and durability into the parts takes some time. It’s our first Pro kit so it’s still a very steep learning curve. We have really dedicated guys putting in the hours and making this buggy better step by step. Rick, Dylan and Taylor have already been able to put together tons of data to improve the kit so big thanks to them!
LRC: Is this it’s first official race?
ANDREW: Yeah this is the first race we have run the buggy, some earlier testing had been done but only very limited.”
