I know I'm an old fuddy duddy but I believe the novelty of this would wear off pretty quickly and besides for that sort of terrain an off road buggy (truggy?) would nearly be just as good. I'd think that sand or mud might be a better location for something like this. Might be fun for a while on a beach..

Hi thanks, the point showing this on this rough terrain was to prove it is faster than a normal RC tank and can take a beating my normal tanks would have been in a pile of pieces if I drove them like this ripsaw tank in this same location. also to show if you like tracked vehicles you would most definitely like this one.
I like tracked vehicles so I like this thing..in fact I like it so much I purchased another one in orange color!

Firstly thanks for posting the review of the product.

"if you like tracked vehicles you would most definitely like this one."

Well..... it's interesting surely. Would I buy one, unlikely. I looked at them online while all our models no matter how complex and expensive are just toys; this thing is a real 'TOY', complete with molded rubber band tracks but I get it the full size ripsaw has molded continuous tracks
also.

I believe my less than ecstatic response to this is I've never been a fan of 'thrashing' models: an MO this thing seems to be
squarely aimed at. And it's not even me being a grumpy old man thing- I've never been into thrashing even in my teens...
Driving fast yes, thrashing no... Now all this said IMHO what would up the cool factor is to equip something like this with
an FPV camera... THAT could be fun....

If they make you happy go for it. For 70 bucks it would probably be a lot of fun on our coastal beaches... If there are different grades of these things I've only seen the non 'hobby grade' toy versions.

I second the vote for the FPV! Do it in snow.
