I want one but... Not till I sell my Kyosho or something else. (Gotta get funding somewhere. lol) I am swaying more towards the RC8 but the price of this is great and looks to be awesome quality.
Thanks, James

why is it called Radical when its Nanda NRB-3????

and yes its a huge improvment compared to the previous model, have seen it on the track and all i can say that its up there with the best in terms of quality and handling and looks really good.

steven Drygalla is currently the driver for Nanda NRB-3 as well as other team drivers and man he can drive.

DirtRacer, In the US the car is available under the Radical name only, kind of like the Hong Nor is a Jammin in the US.

Blowpop, They should be in shops around Oct. 20th depending on shipping time, production, ect. you can call Carolinas and Amain if you want to pre order

alright just dont see why there would be any point in naming it Radical instead of Nanda, Caster is caster and OCM is OCM.

I believe that it is in the same realm as Hong Nor and Jammin. Basically Nanda is the Chinese company and Radical is the American subsidary(sp?) of Nanda. I am pretty sure thats how that works, plus if you think about it, its a pretty clever marketing scheme when trying to enter into a market where there is roughly 35 different, capable winners available.

Dirtracer: Its all about bussiness. Nanda is making the car for Radical, The Radical name is well known in the USA, Nanda is not. There are several other reasons as well. we have several manufacturers that make products for us. As Black stated its like OFNA and Hong Nor. OFNA doesn't want to spend thier money to advertise another company, they would rather market thier own name. that was if something happens and they decide to have XYZ R/C make thier cars it not money wasted.

Caster is not Caster everywhere, The Caster is also called HobbyTech, Speedline, and a few other name throughout the world.

Paul works for Axial, so he runs the Robotronics truggy, however since they do not have a true "race" buggy he can run whatever he wants to. He is not an official Radical driver, but he helped us a bit in testing and really likes the car so he has continued to race it. He is under contract with JP at the moment..
