The Marder is actually two wheel drive. Look into the Redcat or FS cars if money is an issue, and if not go for the 4wd FG Baja. Oh and stop yelling at us.

The FG Marder is yet to be delivered with 4WD,but the FG Baja has 4 WD.This is a kit that you have to build yourself,but soon to come is a (i guess) reasonable priced,ready to run-kit with the FG Baja.This will have more plastic parts than the kit,but you can buy these upgrade parts later on.The words "affordable" and "durable" doesnt always goes hand in hand.

But the FG Marder 2WD is a great car,put some extra money in it and buy a Marder Race which have a bit more options than the standar Marder

Whatever you buy it will be great fun!Its even more challenging to control a 2wd vs. a 4 wd,but absolutely not difficult

The Redcat Rampage is only 659.00[X(][X(] from Largescale rc.com what a steal of a deal and I think they had a deal going of 50.00 off that even?

I Like the idea of the FG 4WD plastic RTR version for our Canadian winters. Something I'd like this year. There's no way I'd run my Elcon in the snow. Next week my friends gonna pick up the Competition edition. Should be a fun build since he's only 10 minutes from me and we have lots of time to build it now!!
