its prolly got the go .21 3 port sport...I had 2 of them and wasnt all that impressed...actually didnt have much luck with them...but I hear nothing but good about the high end go engines...which makes sense...I think the sport models from any company wouldnt be near the quality of their high end engines..

the casters do look like a nice buggy, thats for sure..

Just a couple updates on this RTR. It has been raced for 4 races already and only problem that has come up was I had a motor move and stripped a spur gear. That is it. Even the stock servos for steering and throttle are still going strong which is suprising.

First race with it I put a lap on the field in the A-main which at the 25 minute mark of a 30 minute main my spur stripped. Second race it got me second in the A-main. 3rd I led the A-main and me and a MP9 put a lap on the field and on the last lap I bobbled and got passed and finished second. 3rd and 4th race out of 3 quals it placed 2nd and 3rd in the A but mains got rained out.

This is one awesome buggy for a RTR. I do have a PRO Kit ZX1.5R but am having so much fun racing the RTR against all the KIT cars I keep running it. I will be running it tomorrow night for a series race coming up. Completely satisfied with it. More than I expected from a RTR.
