I saw it a while ago and thought why not just buy an atv.. For an rc I think it is a bit underpowered too, don't know what engine that is but I guess it would need at least 50 hp to give the "rc feel". Cool build though!

Jump

They had a video of them jumping it, went about 6 inches and then something in the rear broke
Not really a good promo video, unless they think the buyers are oblivious to the faulty parts

its cool and all but at that size you pretty much arnt driving an RC anymore. Its cool, its pretty BA looking but like i said ages ago. I think 1/5th is the largest scale i would ever consider (or 1/5th-ish, +/- a little is fine). The thing is you can put a 46cc in these and its well over powered, you need a monster of an engine for that, you would essentially be working on a car.

Besides, what would you do with it? you cant really take it to the park and run it around the local baseball field, other than MX tracks there wouldnt be anything big enough to handle it other than the desert. And who would make parts? Rich people toy, IMO. Not powerful enough to enjoy like a smaller scale and to large to take anywhere. My Baja fits the trunk of my Skyline, with a little to spare. Any larger and i wouldnt be able to take it with me without another car.

Yes it did break, but their also still developing it. The baja and losi 5ive werent perfect as they developed them either. Obviously these people arent going to release it for sale until the kinks are worked out.

Not how I would get people to put money towards my product
That's like inventing a new drone and having your promo video be it flying and smashing into the ground lol

Yeah but whats the difference between all of us knowing parts break in development on prototypes to seeing it happen. We all know it happens, never seeing it doesnt change it.
