    These aren't mass-produced on machines, but hand assembled. The metal tubing is welded. There aren't going to be very many made, so exclusivity is also a factor. Yes, $600 is a lot of cash - but when you think how much people spend on shelf-queens it's not that much...

    The two-seater looks better than the four-seater IMHO.
    Traxxas: Stampede, E Maxx
    Losi: Muggy

    That does look really sweet, but very pricey

    That's be cool to see somebody build their own car to look somewhat like that
    Looks like just a bunch of different Traxxas parts and a custom chassis

    Bad suspension geometry in rear.

    Well first off $600 cmon, next the rear upper camber links are way too long and will cause the rear tires to lean out at the top with any suspension movement and cause rollovers. The rear gearbox is only attached to the bottom of the chassis. not the roll cage. looks flimsy. On the plus side visually the best looking dune buggy I have ever seen in rc. Just my 2 cents.

    Sorry, they are using $100 in traxxas spare parts and custom roll cage that costs $25 in material. Yeah I know its hand made, but $600 is ridiculous considering most roll cages for maxxes and stuff fetch $50 - $100. So put a price tag of $250 on the roll cage and then throw in the traxxas parts bin, charge $350-$400 for it.

    Heck you could buy a welder at harbor freght for $100, buy the tubing for $25 and weld it yourself.

    Thanks, I needed something else to want to get now....I agree the two seater looks more proportional, but both are cool.
