[/img]What is this world coming to when Crap Tire is selling R/C Nitro Trucks !!!!!
Has anybody else had a look at these (2WD Trucks)?. The head of the motor looks to be made of Cast Iron, not sure how the engine would preform or how long it would last,...... will be interesting to see how Canadian Tire deals with the return of these toys after the first crash damage occures and no availability of any spare parts, not to mention that dad who is so frustrated with trying to tune Nitro for the first time and is at whit's end walking back into the store with it(what kind of mood do you think he'd be in after an afternoon of that) {a Glow WHAT"?.....} ...hahaha......Ohh nasty me !!.
They also have what looks to be an electric version of the 1/5 H.P Baja ,......... it looks realy close both in size and geometry of suspension parts only thinner and lighter plastic arms.

On a positive note at least there will be a whole lot more people both young and old introduced to the joyous, sometimes frustrating little things we love and call R/C's..........if they have or gain a true intrest in R/C's it won't take long for them to find and appreciate their L.H.S and all that they offer(options, advise, and availability from people who will know what they are talking about).


40 BUCK :shock: :shock:

Yeah.. they tried this crap last year around this time too.. short of new glow plugs, they'll have a hell of a time getting spare parts... It'll be good for Local hobby shops since they'll come looking for parts, and be told that there's nothing they can do.. then walk out with a real rc truck/car...

yeah that 1/5 elec "baja" is comical in comparison; would be a one time use for me to drag around w/ the real deal

for sure ,

the price on boxing day will be minimal no doubt. no Q about it, no parts wil ever be available for these and the parts on this truck cannot be even remotely compared to HPI

i was with 40 bucks when we saw these, i am positive the rubber (tires) we're V2 baja - legit - what r those worth :?:

may be, at the least, a cheaper set o tires, heh heh

Yeah....I'd have to agree.
The add went on to say that he'd only played with it 3 times and it was still on the original 1st charge of the battery............You think he was Lying ??? lol
