Default GV rampage 1/8 monster truck....??

Whats the 411 on the GV (GREAT VIGOR) RAMPAGE MONSTER TRUCK 1/8.
Im looking into this and just want some feedback. Im finding it hard to find some info on the truck, any help is greatly appreciated.
Heres a link from my LHS around the corner from me, as you see its 500 aus dollars which is pretty good for that truck i think.

Great Vigor (GV) makes many of the XTM products. In this case the Rampage is the same as the X-Factor 2.

I had an original X-Factor, its a good fun truck, but is very limited to its fun since it is a solid axle truck. It's very real looking and can take some abuse but is nothing like a Revo/Savage/MGT/LST when it comes to racing or bashing.

Cool trucks. I agree with binary, it isn't the best basher and certainly not a racer. However, they are super fun to drive and unlike anything else out there.

I wouldn't buy it as my first truck, but I would definitely buy it if I wanted something different.

This is mine. They are fun to customize and mod.
