ECX Amp Desert Buggy

One new, affordable R/C monster truck is great. But two new, affordable R/C vehicles? Now we're talking! Alongside the announcement of their new Amp MT, ECX has pulled the curtains back to reveal yet another sub $150 radio-controlled runner, the Amp Desert Buggy.

Sharing the same main components as the Amp MT, the Amp DB Desert Buggy features an off-road-inspired body with big, beefy tires that will give you grip in just about any type of terrain. Couple that with water-resistent electronics, a powerful brushed motor, and an overall great look and you have one amazing RTR (ready-to-run) R/C machine.
