Yeah, I am a tool, and yes, I got it from the guy on Ebay $35 I think, then I painted it. And to answer Randy, yes, I am looking for a the spinner wheels and a tiny little neon kit to finish the pimp-style!

I should read up on what the differances are. The one in your link certainly is kicking though.

Here's another site Chris... http://www.hpiracing.com/

They have a pretty cool Jeep Rubicon body right on the front page. Wish they can do a defender with that much details.

I got mine on ebay brand new for $350 so there are good deals out there. They are amazing fun in the Desert. It keeps surprising me how much of a beating they can take.

Oh and for the record DJ, Barbie threw her panties at the truck right after the picture was taken

Hey Guys,
I use to work with RC cars a lot and now that I have a defender I end up working on that. But, Traxxas makes the T-maxx which is a nitro monster truck. It has been out for a long time so there are loads of aftermarket parts. The downside of a T-maxx is that it comes in Ready-to-Run format i.e. no fun building it. HPI makes great kits as well. For the most part you cant go wrong with a Traxxas, HPI or Associated truck. They are fun, loud, and smell like nitro.

Andrew

SWEEET, I love it. Do you rock crawler with it? I need to get my self one of those but need to have the one in garage running first.

I know with the double coil overs it can handle big jumps really well but how does it flex.
Is it locked?
