That is one of the Roadrunner variants from Express...not the motor company eXpress...it's a different company.

Thats a Xpress produced by Sun Sun Hobby Co.

RC mart still carries some parts for these vehicles..

Awsome car back in the day.. but very fragile.

Btw.. thats prob the first version they made.

They stop making those steel diffs and turned to plastic. You can also tell by the chassis (no droop screws) and they all came with the black aluminum motor mount by default. I believe that particular car came out some where in 97-98 or so...

ya, it is one of the early Xpress from Sun Sun. As there is a Japanese "Xpress" basicly same car with very few different. If you can find the arm for the Japanese version it is much strong. But have not seem them for some time and not sure where can you get them now. A very good car back then with smooth drive train and handle quite well.

That was superior in EVERY WAY to EVERY RS4 variant until the Pro4. The Xpress cars were fantastic, but frail.

AH Yeah! The Express car.

Ken Gerberding and I tested these cars for Ultimate Hobbies circa 1995 before they imported them in right afterward.

Fun car, decent handling.

+1... have no idea what that guy was saying lol.. these cars were "the Sh*t" back when they debut in the late 90's...

Ultimate Hobbies in So.CAL has a major over stock of these car kits (they are selling them for dirt cheap!) along with parts...
