You can usually find discount codes for up to $60 off, so not bad for a 1/5th RTR, in my opnion.

That's the Anderson M5 Cross but with 2.4Ghz radio and brushless system installed in a RTR if I'm not very much mistaken!
That'll be popular then!

Below is a post from another forum from one of the Duratrax guys.

If you drove the original sample bike and then production you would see that we did not just "slap our name on it." I did alot of testing and went through several revisions before we got the bike where it is today. And yes Anderson benefits from some of our hard work and yes there are still minor differences.
Also the last three Vendetta's (TC, Rally and SC) have been designed in house. Yes, we used the same basic platform but the rest is all our design. The Vendetta's work very well.
It is hard to explain how much fun the bike is until you actually drive one

Hi Dan, I just realized you will need to join Tower's super saver's club for $9.99
to be able to use that code. but it stills saves the 60 bucks plus free shipping on purchases over $150. Dave

rcp: the optional steering damper from Anderson is way too long (about 12mm, IIRC) to fit the bike.
