I got the Nissan Skyline and all I can say its not your typical R/C car.

I love the fact that you have to put together the body and you can modify everything inside the car - sky's the limit

This is just the starter kit and its fast

I also got the working headlight and taillight upgrade
I was down in the basement playing in the dark, freakin awesome very bright

Radio Shack has struck gold! I would recommend it to anyone who loves messing with cars.

how fast do they actually go?.... they seem smaller than what they perceive them to be in the magazine adds.... how big exactly is it from front to back? and do you just buy them at any Radio Shack?

I have been looking at getting myself one for a while (since i seen the first magazine add) but have been reluctant as I didn't have enough details on it

It's a .25 cubic inch (4.1cc) big block engine that features a billet aluminum heatsink head for extra cooling
LOL, 4.1cc is considered to be a "big block" :rofl:

I went to check them out at radio shack today- pricey for upgrades. The one I was quoted online with EVERYTHING was 233.86. And I picked up a news flier on them.

Car itself- 49.99
Body kits- 12.99
Suspension- 7.99
Wheel upgrade- 9.99
Command Logic Lights-5.99
Motor upgrades- 12.99 + 15.99
Tire upgrade- 7.99
All wheel drive upgrade- 14.99

Well I might as well buy a real Civic, should cost about as much as a fully modded XMOD.

And of course there is a web site....here it iz

I get these things for 30% off :biggrin:

Theyre not flying off the shelves as much as the company expected... I just dont think many people know about them. We also have way too much overstock on ZipZap's, too... itd take them a few months to figure out they were missing a box of 24 of them if someone decided to lift them.

Edit: Every other car comes in a variety of colors (Supra, Civic, RSX)... I wish i could get a skyline in silver but NOPE! only yellow.
