I went and drove the RTR out of the box at Thunder Alley and it was so much fun. I think you all are really going to like it!

They NEED to change the motor to a .21 and include a starter box. It will be alot better then.

Looks good, need to see some body-off pics.

thats what i am saying if it had a race legal engine in it it would get beginers into racing more. at most club races around me it would be legal but any big race or series race they would have to switch it. there are no main stream race inspired rtrs that come with a 21

The 8.5 RTR is fully legal. Comes with a box too. AE can do alot better on this.

I can't understand why you would release a Race Bred buggy as a RTR and not put in a .21 engine, but instead include a non legal .28.
I love Associated cars and products but this baffles me a bit.

Annie, get it right dude...

http://www.hobao-racing.com/products...yper8.5rtr.php

Nothing about a starter box, and it may say Hyper 21, but it appears to be the Macstar .28. That is directly from the HoBao website.

The AE RTR looks pretty damn good. Guys that buy these RTR buggies (95%) never go to a track. The .28's are there because there is "no replacement for displacement" . Toy cars are no different than real cars; people like bigger engines.

Dont quote me on this but I am pretty sure if the engine came as an RTR vehicle it is legal no matter the size. It could come with a .32 and would still be legal as long as it is an RTR and came with that engine.

I know, that kind've bugged me a bit too. I know the whole "no replacement for displacement" addage. But the matter of fact is, a newbie or rookie isn't gonna be able to tell much if any difference between a .21 and a .28. In fact I'm willing to bet there are a lot of .21 racing motors out there that are more powerful than that .28.
