This looks sick, cant wait to get one

The tire and rims are very cool looking imo, and might be the first 17mm 2.2 at least that I ever seen

The 4 link setup looks ok, I like how it was as its just works and is tough but, the steer still seem to be the same yikes

always liked my nitro models and will always have a couple but since I got into 5th scale and can get a gallon of gas for $3 instead of $30 plus no tuning every run that is worth the cost..

Ugh! Yeah, the fuel prices are astronomical! I too very much disliked having to constantly be tuning. Electric is much more my speed, plug-n-play is the only way to go! :lol:

I am intrigued by the larger stuff that runs gas/oil mix or even straight gas, just don't have the wallet for such things.
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

I was teasing and riffing on the 420 reference. :wink:

It's cool but it's just a re-bodied Mad Force hence the name. Although they did try to improve the Mad Force's suspension by turning it into a 5-link. I see it comes in an electric version as well.

And, I bet both versions are more nimble with the smaller wheel/tires. Could lesson the amount of parts breaking.

The thing that bugs me about this is the body, is they took a Ford body and modified the grill slightly to not get hit by patent infringement. Did anyone notice, they have the tires mounted backwards as well?

That's absolutely the case with the body, which seems to be the trend these days. The tires received the same treatment as well. They appear to be "inspired" by Mickey Thompson Baja Claws. Also yes, they are on backwards.
