The Spektrum Smart electronics and AVC (Advanced Vehicle Control) system should offer a great driving experience for hobbyists with any level of experience. While a vehicle of this size might not be a first-choice for a novice, you could certainly drive it with confidence.

Two body graphics and color options are available for this large-scale buggy, a black and red Fox Racing model and a red and silver Losi model. Both options include a functioning LED light bar for nighttime driving and also feature beadlock wheel rings that accent the colors of the body panels.
