This was at Landmark store in front of SGS mall, pune.
Actually when i had gone there i had my eyes set on an offroading model (nikko make)
They had only one piece and we needed two of them.
Then the salesguy told me that one piece is lying at their store in mumbai and can be shipped in a couple of days.

So I believe you can check your local landmark store.
They have a decent collection in pune atleast.

Speed wise they are ok.
I have raced other cars in the same league so this one is as fast if not faster.
The best part is the detailing on the car and that this is a licensed ferrari product.

Regarding control it is very precise.
The rear wheels are powered and they have a differential setup too

These cars have semi pneumatic tyres and ride really low.
So you need flat surface to race them.
Radio range is good to.
Mine has around a 100 ft range.

The lights work as you move.
When you go forward the headlight come up and when you reverse the brake lights light up.

Its not just the speed.
This car can perform drifts too.cheers:

Before you ask I wanna say : I dont have the video.

Hi All,

This is my current RC car, Ferrari F430 Challenger. It coasted me 3000.00 looking out for a RC Truck as the Ferrari has a very low ground clearance and cannot run on the roads near my place.

Please let me know where can I find RC trucks and WRC RC cars in bangalore. Tried ModelArt and Landmark at forum mall but no luck.

Regards,
Sajan

Yeah Rehaan, they shut down the store they had at Marine Lines and now have moved to "half a garage" in Lamington Road, it's in a small lane across Imperial Cinema....you go a little ahead of the Union Bank and it's on the left hand side. Nothing great there...they had 2 cars, I guess they were chinese...and he was charging 16k and 22k for a 2.6cc engine one. I don't know what happened, I used to hear that it was a big store but when I went there was only 1 man there.

The number is: (022) 23823125

@ KSM Vtec:
I am not aware as the truck was with my room mate who has left for his another city for another project.
This is from another thread and will be of use to you i hope.

I have just finished building the hpi baja 5b SS kit!! Took a long time to complete! It has a 26cc gasoline engine so it is pretty quick! Any Delhi members want to get together to drive the RC's together? Sorry for the pic, will uplod an actual one soon!
