Really wanted a small scale RC car that has mostly everything a 1/10 has, think about the fun you would have when you are racing small scale RC cars with friends down in the basement or something :-P, so I did some research, looked around a few brands, thought about getting the new LaTrax 1/18 On-Road Rally Car, also looked at HPI 1/18 Micro RS4 and I came across this, LOSI 1/24 Micro Brushless SCT RTR. Inexpensive ($150), small, 2.4 Ghz control, brushless motor, 4 oiled shocks, 4WD and, full bearings (doesn’t say it on their site but it was because I took it apart :-P). The size it’s just as big as my hand, speed is pretty fast considered it’s 1/24 scale, and it is ready to run right out of the box. There are tons of upgrade parts available if you looking to speed this baby up in the future as well, so if you have some spare money for a toy, this is actually not bad 🙂 FYI, LOSI has a Rally version too which uses the same chassis.
On a side note, if you want to do future upgrades or something custom to it, you will probably need a precision screwdriver set because the screws are very tiny 🙂

all I had to do was to buy another body, bumpers and a back tower for the body clips
