This is news to me.

Pretty neat with all the scale features, in fact, quite unusual with all those opening doors.

Has anyone seen it for sale? IFS, 4 link and some metal on it. All looks scale.

Best part was hitting the throttle and seeing it back up lol.

But looks pretty cool. I'd like to hear about more details... or I need to learn how to speak Chinese.

Yeah, I chuckled too... then I pulled out my phone and used the translator camera and they are explaining how to reverse channels on the remote. Oh, we Americans can be so quick to sarcasm.

Just ordered mine from Aliexpress. My first purchase ever from that site. I hope it actually shows up. ETA Nov 28th $163 USD.

163 for a 1/24 scale direct from China, ya nope I ain't that stupid. The trx4m is cheaper and it's 1/18 and actually built worth a shit.

Wow, calm down spanky. Nobody is comparing this with the trx4m except you. But since you brought it upÖ

One is a typical and not very exciting crawler, waterproofed with a hardbody but no interior. To make it worth a shit youíll spend another $300 in upgrades so you can post a picture for flex Friday.

One is a refreshingly new style (straight rear axle with IFS), it has 2 speed transmission, waterproof, itís not a jeep/bronco/Land rover, itís true 24th scale (that means a bazillion 1/24 and 1/25 model bodies will fit), comes with light kit, has a full interior and 5 opening doors.

Yeah, it wonít climb every rock, but ya seeÖ thatís just it. If we only had vanilla, weíd be missing out on all the fun.

Iím betting itís about the same quality as the Kuro King. That is a solid kit. Iíll be really happy if itís that quality.

ps - where do you think the trx4m comes from? Do you think Santa makes them in his good olíUSA workshop? You are buying the same thing, just with the good olíamerican capitalist tax on top.

I get that it has more details, more true to scale. But when it costs more than something brand name here with the known Chinese brand quality. Haven't found anything from a Chinese brand that is the same or better than branded, not talking just rc crawlers.

And it's traxxas, ain't gotta spend anything to make it decent, it is already. It ain't like the scx24 and such, ya those need help out of the box.

I watched the SBG video review, nothing amazing to see. Just another RC truck. Do you already have one? How can you say you don't have to upgrade it to make it perform well? Speaking about how you feel vs fact is fine... just a waste of time. Remember, in this hobby, Brand Loyalty gets you nothing but higher prices. But, in your defense, everyone has their own opinion about their preferred experience. Some people are happy with stock, and others like to tinker and get as much as they can out of their hobby.

It was just odd to see your comment come out so harsh and poo-poo on something that may or may not be awesome.

The Tank is only $10 more than the Traxxas, so price isn't the argument. And just because it's not a brand you recognize doesn't mean it isn't good. All RCs start off this way until a major manufacturer takes interest. Take Sam Sang for example... he doesn't even have an official company that I know of, but I've bought a ton of AMAZING rc kits from him.... case in point, my G500 build as seen here. Builder's Notes: 1/18th Mercedes Benz G500

But I'll just drop it. You seem to be a 'glass half empty' kind of guy and that's fine. I don't mind spending some cash to explore what else is out there.

I'm just glad to see something new on the market other than the same old stuff. I'm hoping that I'll be pleasantly surprised...
