Somebody actually flipped the whole car around, so rear was front and front was rear. Mid range? Look at tamiyas tb04 pro, or a ta06 pro. Very nice cars.

The tc4 club sportsman if a good all around car . 50x better than the sprint . and just about every hobby shop has parts for it . if not very inexpensive to get thru mail order .

for that, i would look into a nice used setup. Tamiya cars can usually be had cheap, and you can pick up a nice used radio for around 50 bucks.

you could get a sprint 2 flux, but i have a sprint, and compared to my tamiyas, its just not on the same level as far as quality.
