Default Ansmann Kryptonite Truggy

Does anyone have experience with the Ansmann Kryptonite truggy? I can get a brand new roller for €150(compared to €500 for an RC8T CE). I'm not going to race it. Just want a cheap - but solid and tough - truggy for testing engines, messing around, running on tracks and off, etc.. Would maybe race it at a less competitive/serious type race.. Spare parts are plentiful, available, and cheap. Thanks.

While I do not know that specific model,I do know well the buggy version.Plastic parts are really flexible,steel parts,chassis and towers are good but the aluminum used on the engine mount is very flimsy.Shock shafts do bend because of the aforementioned flexible suspension arms and change clutch springs right off the bat.Witnessed a full speed almost head-on crash against the sidewalk,chassis was a banana,right hinge pin popped off and a fuel tank support broke,that was the only part that was replaced.I think there's a kit version and that's good because the stock servos and engine are...you know,RTR standard.

Thanks... I should have been more specific - I'm talking about the Pro roller - looks to have a bunch of carbon fiber and alu - have heard it's bulky - and heavy.. Definitely not getting an RTR. One of the reasons I'm even thinking about getting one is because I have extra engines laying around, and yeah, the pro roller is so cheap.. As are the spare parts btw. One got auctioned off a couple hours ago for €120(from a shop - new price €149)

Don't know if there are differences between versions regarding the plastic but the aluminum for sure looks better.Seems a bargain but can't tell you more,sorry.
