I just seen this truck/buggy for the first time a couple weeks ago. So i don't think anyone on here has experience with it yet. If you are really thinking about buying it. Then if you do, try and give a review of it's build, quality of parts, and other stuff so other will know.

Looks like a Chinese knock off of the Associated 18 series.

Yea, it does but who really cares. Other than the people that buy strictly for the name brand. I would buy it before i pay almost twice the price of a AE car. It is like the rc helicopters. The knock-offs are really getting better than the original. I am not trying to argue just stating that it really does not matter what company makes it and if it is like any of the other knock-off rc18t's than most 18t parts will work in it so the hop-ups are countless.

It is an OEM version RC18T, and if you could check out the following video, you could see how durable it is !

It still running extremely fast even after a few head on collisions with kurbs !!!
Beside, this RC18T does have full parts support.
We will launch more upgrade Aluminium alloy type CNC parts soon.

Have a nice day,

It is a great buy, but I just worry about the replacement parts. I dont want to wait for the replacements for 2 weeks.

Heng Long, the manufacturer of this buggy is also the OEM of the Xray M18T

Hi Arvidx,

Many people bought this rc18t since being lauched few weeks ago. We have sold more than 300 pcs already.

The ESC is from Hobby Wing, and is programmable !

Why do you call it an RC18T when it is obviously a copy? It may be legal to sell a similar design but I'm sure that calling it the same thing as the original model, patented by Associated Racing Ltd. is illegal.

My brother just purchased one of these from LHS and its pretty fast.. Went to a concrete skatepark and thrashed around. I was pretty shure something was gonna break but everything held up! I have a Losi mini-T and im soo jealous. Mine isnt even close to being that fast.

Its nothing short of a bargain. Im gonna have to get one too now.
