I agree if I had that much money to blow I would get something else. Just thought it was interesting.

Actually scale speed it goes much faster then the real thing. Even not to scale might go faster. LOL

I got an email from Troy about it, it looks really cool. It's insanely heavy, it would be awesome to drive that thing around. It's actually well priced as far as large scale tanks go.

$2600 hundred dollars and I would be board with it in less than 10 min. A huge waste of money for me.

I willing to bet it is as there is very little in the RC world that is not made in China.

What's wrong with it being made in China? My iPhone was made overseas, and so was the laptop I'm using right now.

It's not the fault of the Chinese, It's the American companies who choose cheaper labor overseas. while the executives pull multi million dollar bonuses, at the expense of the working class American. Just don't blame the Chinese for it, we're doing this to ourselves. Chinese workers are just taking jobs that are offered to them, nothing wrong with that.

Doesn't look like a Sherman to me. In fact it looks like an M36 Tank Destroyer formally a 90mm Gun Motor Carriage, M36. Depending on which variant, the most prolific being the earliest version which utilized an M4A3 chasis. It could do about 26 mph.

The M18 Hellcat on the other hand, could do about 60mph with its torsion bar suspension. That could actually be a bit more fun for you speed demon types, scale wise. Too bad they picked the heavier version to model with its older type suspension.
