Sure.. will e-mail you..

Just send me a check once you build it up... make sure no parts are missing.. (I checked and everything looks to be there, but I obviously didn't build it up so I don't know..)

The kit comes w/ 2 bumpers.. one regular one (see my pic) and one "training" bumper (big..)

The original Wild Willy has only the short bumper..

Cool race Was it just me or was there one or two obviously overpowered Wild Willy's out there? One seemed to just take off way faster than the rest.
Speaking of overpeowered Wild Willy's. I just put a Epic 9X1 in mine to see how far of a wheelie I can run. I will get a video. Wish me luck.

Yeah, for sure a couple of them seems to be way stronger in terms of straight line speed...

Make me want to put a BL setup on my WW2.. the thing is, it probably needs a sensored base system.. maybe I should just move the Sphere / Neo to the Wild Willy...

That looked so hard to control.. like my Lunchbox w/ brushless motor.. (probably worse.. as Lunchbox' wheelbase is a bit longer than WW-2!)

Nice video.. it is cool that you get your kid involved in the R/C!!

Anyone know where I can get the chrome edition? I've been trying to get one forever. I'm willing to trade my nitro boat for one. ($300) value
