Vid looks promising, let's hope it's good rendition of how the car really is.

Just ordered one. Now for the everlasting wait... Meanwhile I wonder what parts are interchangeable with the Twin Hammers

Buggy in style
The K9x9 series have different chassis and transmission. I'm very curious how they are.

the K939 have a dual motor setup, but i have not been able to find any internal pictures of either of them.

Wow! This looks really good. I always liked the twin hammers. Price is good too. Does it have the 2 speed tranny?

Banggood has it for $219 shipped, and I see a servo on the tranny, so it looks like it has the 2 speed. I see a brushed motor and a combo Rx/ESC.

No thanks anyone can make a good video with enough takes.
Looks like an ftx vantage with better suspension.

Got mine. It's pretty cool aside from having no oil whatsoever in front shocks and aside from the silly decals; I painted the body and rims army green and now it looks good. It was my first attempt at rock climbing and I was really impressed at how it performs. The remote is nice aside from misspelling on the screen. I'll try to make a video this weekend.

To be fair its very common for an oil shock to come without oil as id imagine thats usually hand assembled.
Misspelling?

Misspelling unless there is such a function known as "serno renerse". I don't know much about rc cars but I'm pretty sure that there is oil in the back shocks but none in the front ones. I expected that and ordered some when I ordered the car. Should be here soon.

No good videos by any means but the kids were being a handful A 1500 mAh lipo runs the car long enough for the motor to get quite hot. Needs a heatsink, I think. I also find it rather slow on high gear, not sure about 30 kms per hour claim. But I really like the car. I'm having a lot of fun with it.

If the motor is getting hot(as I would expect lol) this car would probs be a good candidate for a brushless conversion but it would be very easy to destroy the drivetrain with a better motor.
