ECX Roost 1/18 RTR 4WD Electric Desert Buggy
I bought one of these last year from my local hobby shop, and I gotta say, it's pretty impressive for the size and price! This thing handles terrain better than some of my 10th scales and it's a blast to drive. I haven't tried any upgrades yet, so I can't speak to that, unfortunately. However, I did run this at my local 10th scale track in it's stock configuration. For a clay track, this thing needs better tires for sure, but it rocked the track when it did grip! The stock tires are fine for bashing (on or off road) though. Overall, very reliable and lots of fun right out of the box!
