    $200 on SubiSpeed. Too bad the site didn't give any detailed specs about the included gear. Looks like an Associated RC18 chassis (or some variant/knock-off). If so, there is a lot of aftermarket upgrade potential for this chassis.

    I pre ordered one of these 8 months ago and just got it. LMK if you have any questions.

    It's pretty quick, awd, seems well built but mostly plastic parts. Not good for anything but dry smooth ground. Basically no ground clearance and the tires it comes with are useless.

    So...the whole experience pretty much mirrors the real thing, huh?

    Sounds like mall-kiosk type of a car with a massive upcharge because of the official branding. My wife had gotten me a 1/18 4wd buggy for Christmas a couple years ago and it was surprisingly good for something gotten at a kiosk at Rosedale. Real oil-filled shocks and the electronics were waterproof. The motor was some generic POS, but it was fast enough and plenty fun to drive in the snow.
