    Cool looking buggy. Not that a video is the best representation of any vehicle, but does this buggy look slow or is it just me?

    • slsspark attempted to articulate the following, but failed:

      It takes a lot of motor to get nearly 30(28.7 to be precise) pounds rolling.

    • Eric commented thusly:

      This is not your 1/8th electric motor truck. This is a 30lbs monster with a gas engine (pretty much a weedwacker motor)

    • Bryan said:

      Ya it seems a bit sluggish like something holding it back. Need a pipe I like the looks of it a lot.

  2. Mike bailey commented thusly:

    Seems like a pretty good deal price wise compared to the five t.

  3. Landon said this nonsense:

    Looks good but seriously dx2e? Its a thousand dollar car it should at least come with a dx3r pro like the 5t… even the ten scte comes with a nicer radio than this…otherwise it looks nice, kinda like the baja 5t with kraken conversion
