No engine would have held up when supporting the weight of the whole buggy as it landed on asphalt.

And even so, O.S. shouldn't have to raise the cost of their products to be able to produce something capable of withstanding a drop from a 3-story building.

O.S. has been making good, reliable engines for years..and their carbs have always been known as the one of, if not THE, best in R/C.

aaron ive always heard that about OS engines but in my own experience i prefer novarossi carbs

i guess i just know them better

brian i had heard rusty was assembling a 777 at the track personally i think building a kit at the track isnt a good idea

but then again i dont have a huge trailor to build it in either

too bad about instructions i woulda waited if i were him its not like he's hurtin for a buggy i hear he's got a K2 and K3 left after selling a K2 earlier to TW

Hi there,

The product will be shipped from Japan. However, at $746 it will still be cheaper than any other place - that we know of.

Thanks.
