On-board touch screen controller to adjust the brake balance, real ABS, traction control sensitivity and there is more! Full

Still waiting to see this thing going under it's own power, not gravity, pushing or shoving. Are they gunna be about 20 thousand? I could get a WRX paddock basher for that coin and a 1/5 RTR that will do 70km/h. Don't take me the wrong way, you have done some fantastic work on mammuth I & II, and I can't wait to see the thing really go.

i thinks they said $10,000 , the price is too high for me , for that you can buy a nice 4wheel dirtbike , or ten crappy full size cars and rc them up , but thats not the point i guess lol for the size and weight that it is i think the motor they are putting in it wont be enough to get it up to the speeds we're used to seeing , sure its gonna have plenty torque but i think it will be slow as crap , but then again this a different kind of rc proberly for rich kids like the people who bought the conley v8 rc's .

At that size, they should have made it look like an exact scale replica, certainly not the way they did it.  The last really large scale truck that was way cool was the bigfoot monster truck made by New Era.

I feel the opposite.
I think it's great that they made something from scratch that's unique and NOT a replica of something already existing.

there does come a point in which these things get too big.  I think 5th scale is about perfect. Big enough to have fun with / use a gas engine / see it when its wayyyyyyyyyy down the road and when your all done you can still put it in your trunk or back seat and go home.
