Looks real nice. Wiring could be cleaner, don't like them hanging out just to get caught on something.

I just kinda wish race buggies would look kinda scale like such as this one. The aesthetics just do it for me.

wow, that is a sick looking buggy... adjustable ball differential doesn't sound too appealing, but what a beautiful looking RC for the money.

It doesn't look too bad. I wish they had more pictures on their website.

I'm not sure on it myself. Looks interesting, but the front shock tower...eh, I'm not too thrilled with how it looks...despite "Dupont" plastic, I'm not sure how durable it is. If the wheels are any indication, (Stadium truck size, it appears,) it's probably a little smaller than the SCB-size offerings on the market.

I highly doubt that DuPont wants anything to do with RC. DuPont is a chemical company, not a plastics molding company. They sell lots of products used in the production of plastics and composites though. And that's probably where DuPont comes into play. It's pretty slick to use it as a marketing tool because everybody has heard of DuPont.

I wish they had more photos of this thing. $99 is hard to beat, but knowing NitroRCX they will charge a lot for shipping so it won't be that great of a deal. And they're notorious for not stocking parts or at least not keeping enough spare parts on hand for their vehicles.

I have a Tacon Soar from NitroRCX that has been sitting for months because I, like most people, broke the spindles and NitroRCX had been out of them forever. We were also promised aluminum parts, but I haven't seen those.

im just joking around, but the shipping to my house is only 11.95, not trying to get into a big argument
