I am sure few people do have them. I heard nothing but good things about MCD and i actually wanted to get one...but then decided not to disappoint the German engineers, gonna stick with FG.

Gah its so tempting

Thing is, it comes to just over $2000 since I need the radio equipment too :| I could get an FG monster truck and a new engine, pipe, and all kinds of things for that price.

I'm not sure if there is a 2 speed availbale yet.
I think you can change the gearing around though, now that I listened to it it does sound like its winding out rather quickly.

i know..... but the drivability of the thing. MCD's are more of a pro kit type deal. Your engine choice and such on, yes it's expensive but if i had the money think i'd get it. but i know my wife would back hand me [] lol and she thought the FG's were pricey... put it this way though. some Fg road cars cost just as much if not more.. Buy it... just dont tell strangers how much it cost because they'll look at you like your a retard.. thats the looks i get when i tell them how much i paid for my FG's

yeah, I was at the beach a while back with my Losi 8ight T and some kid was there with his monstrous 1/6 walmart special - his parents were shocked that I paid $600 and they paid $60.
