I say if the Predator touring car had been easier to assemble and made by bigger company it would have been a hit.
and if pigs had wings they would fly!! I wish people would stop bring that car back around it was a turd and never made it !!!

Drag you head out of your arse and wipe the shit from your eyes. The Predator 4wd off roader was the best 4wd off road model ever made. It makes the xxx4 gp look like a over weight crock of crap. Rick

RC America would like to set the record straight on this rumor of a shaft car. Team XRAY will be racing the standard T1FK with the optional pieces that are available to the general public. The rumor of a shaft car is simply that, a rumor with no foundation.

RandyB: Ever see one run? I did. And, at the time, it was the best car out there. Now, If you wanna discuss Touring Turds let's talk about the Street Weapon. The ONLY reason that car was successful was because it was a LOSI, so the sheep thought it had to be good. If the Predator had been a LOSI, AE, or YOKOMO design, it would still be on the market in one form or another, and it would still be winning races. Generally people who dog that car have only seen it in magazines, or on the net.

agree, the predator was a really good car, poor material choices, but if they have had the money to continue design the car, the predator would have been one of the the best touring cars, even today with some modifications. it had todays technology in design 10 years ago.
Its still one of the best off road cars

No you got me their I never owned one or drove one just saw it in the magazines. My original post still stands "and if pigs had wings they would fly!! " Cause everyone says it would have been awsome if it had A, B, C. But it didnt so it sucked!

Anyone have pics of this car. It's not one I've heard of. I had a long break from racing from the mid 90's until '02 and must have missed this car.

Actually it won quite a few races overseas, and a race or two here. If Tenth Tech could've fielded a serious race team, with PROFESSIONAL DRIVERS like Losi, AE and Yokomo do, you'd have seen that it certainly didn't suck. Kinwald drove ONE race (FL WinterChamps) with the Off-Road car, and won easily with it. Saying a car sucks when you have NO first hand knowledge is rather ignorant.
