I took the liberty of comparing the Sandstorm and Apache side by side. To be honest I kinda wish they came up with their own design instead of blatanly copying one car's body (and doing it wrong but ill explain that in a minute). The Apache kinda puts that Redcat to shame in my opinion. The Sandstorm just looks
cheaper. The tires have no deep tread to speak of, they look like they are made from really hard rubber, the body is cheaply cut and has jagged angles, and there is one thing they didnt copy with the body that they should have. (Correct me if thats a computer-generated image or the real thing cause to be honest I cant tell.) See on the Apache how the body actually goes inside the chassis by the front left shock to keep dust and rocks out? Redcat left that open so all the rocks your run over can hop on in and enjoy the ride too.
While yes there is a SIGNIFICANT price difference between the 2, I feel Redcat could have tried to "up their game" with a new line to make their cars more appealing. Not to make the customer feel like they have to dump tons of aftermarket parts into it just to make it aesthetically presentable.
Im still wondering what kind of an abomination that one-wheel thing could be...
