Default New Bright Rock Crawler

Bought my nephew a rock cralwer from new bright rc. Comes complete with a 19.2 volt battery and charger. This thing is pretty sweet for $150! Climbs over a lot of crap that most radioshack/walmart knock-offs couldn't even come close too. Has about a 20-30 minute run time too! For a chain store model it is pretty sweet, alot of bang for your buck. Not too fast but climbs rocks and steep hills with ease. The suspension is quite amazing. He had fun climbing his front stairs with it. Still wouldn't trade my savage for it, which I just picked up yesterday. HPI is still the best in my book. Just my $.02

I heard they rock (pun). $150 seems steep for a price the big one at Walmart here is $80.

yeah, that 150 was right after x-mas time. his b-day was in january. I think they're around 100 now. even the "mini" ones are cool. I saw them at the ducks unlimited convention up here last august and i thought "Wow, those are sweet." And I have the full size skidoo from them so I figures they would be decent and have a long run time. My nephew always wants to play with mine, but he's only 10 and i ain't letting him touch my nitro. So I broke down and got him this. Can't go wrong. Virtually indestructible
