Default Tamiya Unimog Mercedes?

I was thinking of getting a ClodBuster until I saw the Unimog crawler.
Looks really awesome and it has an aluminum frame with actual drive shafts realistic like a real truck.
This thing seems just the ticket for bashing around camp ground and some good fun.

Anyone drive one of these?.. Is it junk or is it worth anything at all?

I'm terribly interested in it.

Thanks.

It is a crawler, not a basher. It has such a gear ratio that it will never go fast. If you want a fast bashtruck check out the Dual Hunter/Wild Dagger or Lunch Box/Midnight Pumkin. They are more aimed for speed and regula bashing. In fact the LB/MP with a 22 turn motor is extremely addictive to drive.

For crawling, however, The CR-01 Mercedes Unimog is great fun!

It's not terribly fast, but it will drive almost anywhere. Very quiet, too.
