It's a true truggy, there exactally the same as the truggy Team sells and let me tell you something, there a true track made compatition quality cars, they jump over tripples and quads like nothing I've seen, they look like airplanes when they fly through the air. Durability is great Had a customer actually drive one through a wooden fence (by accident) and not a thing broke, had it doing cart wheels coming off a 20 foot jump sideways. Nice car Excelent vehicle.

well from what i KNow they should be about 20-30 dollars less than hurricane pro so retail is probably gonna be about 349.99 give or take 10- 15 dollars but you can probably get them cheaper than that through a dealer like Clermont or Allabout

Ya somewhere around that price, we sell them for about 365 or so but they should be priced some where between 350 to 365 ish I would think since there the same car, we'll see what Redcat does with the price structure though.

LOL, ya dude, there super sweet truggies, they have a super wide wheel base and the profile is low to the ground, they take corners at some serious high speeds with out rolling.

Redcat seems to be going with the SH 28 while everyone else is using the vertex 21. I think they're making a good choice going with the bigger engine.

its prob a spinoff of the hurricane. I saw this at hispeed model a while ago. The kingpin is weak and the driveshafts are very very common to break.

Its a really "flaming" name for a truggy lol
