Mine arrived yesterday. Had to take the drivers seat out and remove the drivers feet to get my figure to sit nice. Also put a weighted backpack in the passenger seat to even out the weight of the figure. It’s really fun to drive and very capable.







Last night I animated the figures arm and attached them to the steering wheel, looks so sweet with the figure steering :-D

The figure is the MEDIC Special forces figure by KADHOBBY. I bought mine from ebay, but they also sell them on Banggood and many other places. I bought a metal WWII US helmet and US Jacket to make it look more authentic also.

How do the tires feel? Any idea if there's foams inside?

Small price reduction though. Only around $13 less for no transmitter and receiver. I was hoping it was a bigger discount.

Great photos and nice video!

How's the quality of the plastics of the axles compared to something like the Traxxas TRX-4?

Clark is currently working on a new board for the MB. Will be similar to his ACK40 & MFK01.

Nice work!

I adjusted the shocks all the way so it carries figures without as much sag. Overall, a nice runner & am impressed with the price. Now if they'd only follow with a 1/6 Schwimmwagon. I've heard rumors one is under development here but its from another manufacturer.

I don’t have a TRX-4 to compare the axles too. They look stout enough, though time will tell.

Yes that is my luck as well, as I just bought a Sawback to try and make a scale Willys jeep. This one looks awesome but it is missing leaf springs. Still has my interest and looking for updates.
