Check this thing out! There are links to vids a few posts down the forum. I am impressed with how well id deals with a really bad surface. This thing would probably be a blast on a 1/8th track.

Ok, that thing rocks! I'd like to see some video of that on an off road track. Wonder if anybody in So Cal has one that we could video over at Revelation?

It's very new so I bet the only running example is the proto but how about that suspension? That thing motored through clumps of grass like they weren't there. It has high quality rubber and it is more or less self righting so marshalling them would be less of a hassle. It seems to turn sharply at slower speeds too.

I saw a video of a guy running an RC dirt bike at Delta RC years ago but this looks much better.

Yeah man! That thing has been buzzing around the internet since the beginning of the week. No US agent just yet, from what I understand.
