If only it had some rust or drips underneath to make it feel more authentic

See a NAS might be worth $700.00 but It looks like a Japan special...

You would think for 700 bucks you would get a matching spare tire!

oddly enough...

I think I just met this guy yesterday. He was driving down my street (lives about 10 houses away) and wanted to talk to me about my 90. He said he sold custom rc Defenders on ebay.

I wish I knew that building rc's could pay for a house in good neighborhood in LA (I'm only a renter) I would have chosen a different career path...

That is a really cool RC 110. Where did you get it done?

Seems a bit expensive for a battery powered RC...

If it were a 110 and nitro, I'd be all over it.

Mine had a faster motor in it but there was no need for that as the faster it goes the more shit breaks when it rolls or crashes.. And you have less control in the "technical" stuff so I retrofitted a high torque rock crawler motor into it... Much better..
