Oh Yeah, just like that, with extensive chassis and suspension research and development, team BigMike SuperFlex has increased their rig's flex by 1/2". Amazing!! :yikes:

The two key ingredients, flex and traction, that's how the girls in the office will lose and will go off running to the little ladies room for the tissues on Sept 1st.

I'll offer it one last time, if you gals just want to give up and walk away with your dignity, then us SHOP MEN will understand

i was so inspired by your crazy trucks that i went to my local walmart today.  they only had the heeps and said thats all that they carried so i got a heep.  they are pretty awesome its actually still charging and im gettin ready to make some serious mods to it.  Cant wait to see how the comp goes and you gotta release your secrets after, i mean i am dying to know how you have such crazy flex.  good call on the cool toys

hmmmm. Walmart.com doesnt have the lil ones. Just the 1:6 ones. Any of you find them on the net? I looked for a while but maybe you'll have more luck.

Well, they have a HI and LOW range selector, so yes, there are two speeds, but in my opinion, it should be about 3 times slower to be an effective Crawler. I think of it more as a rock comp. buggy, where you only need about 100:1, it surely is NOT a Rock Crawler, which ideally would be 200:1 or much lower.

new idea..............marlin should sell a conversion kit, so that you can gear your remote controlled buggies down, and then we can all crawl at like 200:1 or lower.

Ok, you guys have me pretty interested now, gonna hafta run down to Wally World and check it out now.  It's a nice night for a ride anyway, plus the bike's probably feelin neglected since this is the first day post crash that I haven't been on it.  We need to see which store has em and do a group buy or something.

The local Walmart (Washington State) has one 1:6 Jeep, but no 1:18 rigs are available in the store or online.

Where do you get your 1:18 scale Snipers?

I am planning to get the Jeep, am I the only person on this board willing to "drive" a Jeep RC truck?

Both the bodies on my crawler are firds just to avoid the typical jeep body.  One is a early bronco and the other is a '04 f-150 quad cab.

My W-Mart had 6 1:18 models in stock, 3 Jeeps and 3 Scorp's

But I did notice that on Wal-Marts website, they only list the 1:6th scale and not the 1:18th, so :dunno: ?
