Nice Pics, Vert. Awesome Bokeh. Have you tried any other large scale RCs?

yajaman99 and mail4ajo - thank you, it's an awesome truck. I've been using my Baja 5B mostly, which is the same vehicle without the truck body. I haven't used any other large-scale RCs so I have nothing to compare them to, but I absolutely love the Bajas. Never had any problems with them and being 2WD, they're a lot of fun I'll make a video of the Baja this week.

Yes, the Baja are awesome. I just sold my SS to get a 4WD. Not decided which one.

MCD racerunner V4 seems to be the top pick for me. FGs are great too. Tested it a lot, but many things, I dont like.

No, a basic RC car.
Comes with rubber shoes, so no chance of drifting even at glossy surfaces.

BTW got a Lamborghini too. Again a 1:24 scale RC

I wonder if using tape on those wheels would make it a drift car

Nonetheless, car looks good!

Such technology was demonstrated on a BMW 7 in a James Bond movie. I have the forgotten the movie name but Pierce Brosnan was the Bond?

Looks good. Similarly, I remember Lewis Hamilton controlling an F1 car via a BlackBerry Storm.

Guys Some pics from Gauda Mall Bangalore stall, I will be at Mumbai phoenix mall the next 2 weeks (Fri, Sat,Sunday) 22,23,24 & 29,30,31, while Vaidee will be at the Delhi Mall.
The cool thing about it is you can drive the cars from anywhere on Planet Earth as long as you have internet connection on your phone & the cars have access to internet via WiFi & they stream back live Video to you.

Oh thank god!
I was thinking about real cars.

What will happen if there is a disconnection, will the cars stop or just go out of control?
