I looks okay but you have to remember that it is a Thunder Tiger product. Parts availability will probably be a major issue. I think that the Serpent F180 will probably be a better bet.

needs a two speed on it, like the remote glow plug location, did that years ago on a scratch built sprint car, worked great.

According to a 3Hobby.net member, he has already seen one on-the-road.

I am curious to see if Thunder Tiger is going to better with their parts support on their products. Outside of their 1/8 scale buggies, their support of the rest of their products leaves a lot to be desired. The car does look good and it is 1/10th scale (keeping it affordable over the Serpent 1/8th scale version). But, before I buy, I need to know if I can get parts when or if I break something.
