I'm going to sound like a grumpy old man here and say.......why!!!!!!!!

 

They have taken the original blue RTR blazer,  splattered it with brown and then called it the "rust bucket edition"

 

Now to me if your USP is "rust bucket edition" why on earth would you have immaculate chrome work and rear cap?

 

Surely rust bucket is a term coined against a vehicle that is rotten from top to bottom  either naturally or for patina effect.

 

Thia combo for me is just confusing.

 

It's high time RC4WD stopped regurgitating Toyotas and Chevy's, spend some money on new body licensing and give the RC community something fresh and new to talk about/play with.

 

Rant over! 😅

im with you all the way there mate :good:

 

it’s gonna cost more being “custom” for the same old platform (not that it was bad). One massive plus point is the wheels and tyres, my lad has the bigger version on his trx4 and they are every bit as good as my pit bull tyres in regard to traction etc.  other than that, as Shania Twain once sang, “that don’t impress me much” ooh ooh hey yeah…..

Spot on. I knew it didn’t look right but couldn’t put my finger on it.
