A model company getting into RC? hmm, this might be pretty interesting.

If it is durable, it is a better value than the losi micros right off the bat. Different animal I know, but for $100 this looks pretty good.

I don't like the windshield on the SCT, though. It is too narrow. It looks like the car is squinting.

Go home Dromida - your drunk!

Shame its yet another RC18 clone. I know te Bash market is 80-90% of the RC market but surely if you want a hit a bit oforiginality would help?

The local track started to run these. They have been keeping them in stock and selling pretty well. They are also stocking the HPI mini recon and guys are running a class for anything 1/18th scale now.

just ordered the corr for my nephew
have to see how it is when he opens it Christmas day!
Read a bunch of other stuff on the net and they seem to get decent reviews but they are a bit slow in stock form.
No biggy for the 4 year old that will be running it

got mine yesterday and its an awesome platform needs a few small mods done to be really good. but should make an awesome little racer for our track at the lhs I had to pit a spring in the front diff oitdrive to keep the axle in. and refill the shocks. but no huge problem with that.

My son has been bashing this around for the past 3 weeks. Pretty solid, but doing a bit of work on the shocks made it work much better.

Sounds like pretty good reviews so far for $100 car.

Got the short course truck version dropped into my lap as a christmas gift. So far, the only changes I've done was to desolder the switch (weak point) and hardwire the leads, bend the antenna tube to tuck under the body and upped the shock weight in the back to 32.5wt.

Handles like a dream and has some serious air authority. First impromptu race out with it and I beat the more experienced people with it.

I know this is an older post, but really? it's not even close to an rc18. I'm so tired of "know-it-alls" calling out Clone eithout actually looking at the car first.
