Just saw this on another forum.

How is this even possible?

I guess the April Fool's day cat is out of the bag a little early.

Haha it could be true. I've seen a number of ride on RC's that have been marketed, but most of them died in the production stage or never got of the ground. If redcat actually does something like that I'd buy it for heck of it.

Check out the project Mammuth thread in the large scale forum. The the guys designing it have shown incredible dedication and investment, and the car is looking awesome. I think it will still be a financial challenge for them to bring it to market without outside investment, but it's probably the coolest RC car I've ever seen.

This thing is probably fake though. Just that picture of a guy flying through the air on the hood - a reall product couldn't be marketed like that for legal reasons.

of course its fake
I think last year they claimed they were changing there name to something stupid.
what can I say, the guys at redcat like april fools.
this one is better than last years I will admit.
I like how it says you can ride, while your friend drives it. that would be scary as hell!

The pic of the guy riding on it seals it as fake for me, it's a SC body photoshopped onto a four wheeler with a guy photoshopped onto it haha The wheels and underworkings of a quad are impossible to miss once you've seen enough of them hehe
