Does anyone on here have one? The 4WD semi. If so what's your thoughts? I've always been into the racing semis 1/1 scale. It looks pretty cool but also kind of like a car with just a truck body on it???

Thanks in Advance.

That's the car, not the Semi Truck. The semis motor orientation is different it appears. Cant find any info on the truck specifically.

I have the 2wd version. Love it.

The car is almost the exact same as the semi. Hardly a difference at all that isn't cosmetic.

So the motor orientation is the exact same in the car and semi. The 4wd is what they were showing. If you see the motor different it's because it's the 2wd setup. The had to change it due to the belt system that runs down the center of the chassis.

I've got a good savings going to order one in the next week or two. Does it handle OK? Is it fun or more just a show piece?

It is pretty well stuck aint it ??

on the motor, I would guess it is a stock or close to it , it is my understanding that Most of the sanctioning bodies require a 26cc motor .

now if you pause the vid when he is showing the truck on the table you can see the car in the background and it does look like it has the hydraulic brakes on it, and may be a different pipe.. I don't know for sure on the pipe as I am not sure what the Truck comes with pipe wise..

there are several overseas engine builders that build specific 26cc motors for the racers too, Oddified is one
http://oddified.com/

They can also make some incredible diffs for these cars.
