Yeah that is somewhat odd there.....never seen one of them before. Looks awesome from the R/C perspective though I think riding a baby ATV would make you look like a reject, but I guess still fun. Wish they had a price listed, sure it is expensive though.

Well aren't you a cool guy man you catch all the action first!

Nah.....they just have their website, contact names/info and dealers wanted still all up, but they don't make 'em how'd ya guess?

They go for $2800 and are still made, looks like they've been around since 06 just never got real popular after a little research.

thought this was about a 1/3 scale RC, not how many useless insults someone can sling?

This thing seems more toy than RC. I've seen guys make their kid's powerwheels into RC, and this project seems like a more refined version of that, but still just a ride on toy. Considering how flaky radio systems can be, I don't think I'd trust my sons riding around on this. Oh well.

its for sure not a toy... its one of them china made 100cc 4 wheeler's with a truck body and made into rc... my kids have a 90cc 4 wheeler and I'm 230lb and it flys with me on it.. I seen one of these R/C things in person at a R/V Boat ATV show and they are very dangerous...

No, to me it is more so about the second thing you stated.

Did it seem like it handled? and I mean more toy in the sense that it looks like it's more ride-on "toy" than RC (ie, scaled model), not that it isn't built tough. Wonder what market they're aiming at? dangerous is right!
Still, I guess I applaud their ingenuity.
