It's actually closer to a Power racing Swift 2 pro. They are basically the same as a SHO except for the carbon fibre radio tray and front stabilizer. Look Very similar to a kyosho 777

It's the RD Logics SHO. My buddy just bought one and it is great. I'm getting one myself. They sell out everytime they're posted.

I got one but sold it on ebay a couple of months later... they seem pretty solid, great shocks and shock towers... but getting parts for them ain't easy, especially in australia.

I bought that same buggy off ebay. After a bit of research, it is swift pro version. Pretty much the same as the sho but has a few minor differances. Here's a couple pics of my well abused buggy, has a .28 in it and the buggy is a great basher, it takes everything I can throw at it and begs for more. Great buggy!

Link to swift, the upper front arms and front bumper are the noticable differances. No video yet but the buggy just screams and I just can't seem to break it.

Looks like Kyosho, RD Logics, and PowerRacing all get their parts from the same japanese plant.

No matter who makes it or whos name it's branded under, the buggy is strong and performs well. It will hang with my hyper 7 all day long

If you're gonna run at a track and try to race it, go .21, or you may not be allowed to race.
