This is the Kyosho Scorpion XXL VE "Type 2" 1/7 Scale 2wd Buggy with an included Syncro 2.4GHz Radio System. The Scorpion XXL is a unique concept from Kyosho. It is a monster size (630mm/24.8" long), mid-motor 2wd Buggy, with a scale body design and a modern brushless power system that make it a true all terrain beast. The Scorpion XXL is roughly 20% larger than an 1/8 scale truggy, and is about 15% smaller than a 1/5th scale car. The large size means the Scorpion XXL does not need a specially designed track, it's the perfect size for a typical 1/8-scale track! The Scorpion XXL's size also allows the use of a 4S LiPo batteries to power the system, making the car extremely powerful, but not nearly as expensive as the 8 to 10S power that other systems need to move the heavier 1/5-scale machines. So, the performance is incredible (even better with an optional 6S compatible ESC), it's well suited to a typical 1/8 track, and the cost of operation is more reasonable than a 1/5-scale.

"Scale" is a trend that is becoming one of the most popular features found on modern RC vehicles and the Scorpion XXL brings home that timeless scale appeal of a desert racing buggy. The Scorpion XXL not only looks good with a real roll cage, a driver figure and even some rear pod bodywork, it looks like the real thing! It's as functional as it is attractive, with side vents that direct cooling air over the ESC and motor, the roll cage actually protects the body, and the running lights can be fitted with an optional BRIGHT LED light kit that features 7 high-intensity LEDs per light for action after the sun goes down. A number of aftermarket accessories will also be available to customize the appearance and enhance the performance of this machine. All this makes the Scorpion XXL perfect for bashers, scale enthusiasts, and club racers. It doesn't matter what facet of the hobby you enjoy most, this machine delivers serious fun!

Kyosho Scorpion XXL VE "Type 2" 1/7 Scale 2wd Buggy
Incredible vehicle. However, I don't bash my rigs. I've club raced for roughly two decades so my driving style is a bit different, i.e. a little more purposeful. Therefore I cannot atest to its durability under extreme abuse nor can I review the provided radio system as I prefer Spektrum. Being a RTR go through all fasteners to ensure securement as mine needed attention. Other than that the rest of my review would be track oriented or perhaps OCD so to sum up Kyosho knocked this out of the park. Solid electronics. All electronics, with the exception of the afore mentioned. Incredibly fun and great asthetics, recommended.

I bought one of these took it on vacation with my family to Myrtle Beach. Driving it on the beach with sand paddle tires was SO MUCH FUN! I highly recommend the Kyosho scorpion as a sand and beach blaster and basher!

Kyosho Scorpion XXL VE "Type 2" 1/7 Scale 2wd Buggy
I love this machine, well worth every penny, the retro buggy styling and the build quality is fantastic. Very nicely designed strong structural rigidity on the chassis and the all the smaller parts themselves are nice and tough. When you have it in your hands and looking it over the build quality is very obvious. Speed wise it's plenty quick for its size. With my dynamite gps reader it got consistent 45kph on a 3s 35c lipo. Haven't clocked it yet on 4s yet but it looks and feels like it gets into the 60kph range that way. It's a very good vehicle for off road bashing so raw speed isn't that important though.

The only small issue I had was when I ran it for the very first time one of the screws holding the right rear tie rod just came out after a few back and forth runs up and down my street so make sure to thread lock any of the metal to metal screws when you first get it and check the tightness of the various smaller screws around on it and you will be fine. Since then it has been rock solid for me with no breaks on any of the runs I've taken it on over jumps and various rough terrain. The stock rear tires don't have the best grip but they are ok to start with. Overall a very and fun and well built RC and highly recommended if you are looking for something larger scale and tough to bash around with.
