i got some info on this car from rdlogics. i called them and asked what the buggy was based out of and they said it is a PRP SWIFT. parts are interchangeable. they will/or should already have a full line of parts for it but it's not on the website yet. now i need to know what you guys think about the swift. is it any good?

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
