JQ Products THECar ready to race buggy

JQ Products have announced the release of THECar in RTR (Ready to Race) form. They wanted to create a new standard of performance for 1:8th RTR Buggies and by clever design and production arrangements have been able to keep the specification of this vehicle high, and as close to the Pro version as possible. The servos and engine have been chosen based on their performance as well as their affordability. They wanted to make sure that the servos are strong and fast enough to be able to control the car, in a similar fashion to actual race cars with top of the line servos. Many RTRs have so slow and weak servos, that they are hard to drive for even experienced racers. This is not the case with this RTR, as the Savöx servos are strong and fast enough for the task. The engine is a standard pullstart RTR unit, and it has more than enough power for this super lightweight RTR, that only weights 3300g.
