To me the car looks like Swift Pro. Notice the threaded shock bodies and silicone booties. The original Swift did not have those. Also the shock towers look beefier. This could be a real steal for $300. Somebody buy one and let us know

another piece in the chinese puzzle
of the creators of the Swift

rdlogics ? indeeed !
sales by all means mostly the wrong way

this is a swift2 with metal upperplates
swift2's with painted bodies and carbon plates
for the same price everywhere on internet sites

PRP had enough off them
and they found a new victim
they even don't learn from there mistakes, do they ??

I always liked the original swift, as a copy of the mbx it stands still original in his own design , it's a beautifull buggy and it drives reasonably well
so it should have had a great future as a low budget alternative
but there were made some faults in the materials and commercialy
so the name swift, instead of becoming renowed, is now being put down by all this
