    The Nomad is freakin awesome!!!! Team Associated finally woke up from their slumber and added a cool new vehicle to their lineup rather than rehashing the same thing over and over like Traxxas. Yes, the Nomad is based on a previous vehicle but it is largely new stuff. I don’t think of it the same as Traxxas throwing a monster truck body on the Stampede and calling it a new truck. The only thing I wish Team Associated would have done is based this off the newest RC8B3 with the good shocks and suspension rather than using all the old stuff from the original RC8. I guess thats good news for the RC8 owners though because now a lot of their parts are still being made. I’m loving the Nomad regardless. I’d love to see a factory team kit version or even a nitro be released but I’m not holding my breath.
