FS 53910 vs WLToys 10428, K949, A333


Am looking for a desert rock racer/buggy 1/10 scale that isn't too expensive. I have been looking at the FS 53910 Marauder (link -- http://m.geekbuying.com/item/FS-5391...or-350492.html )

And also the WLToys 10428 (like the Twin Hammers) also known as the K949, etc. I currently have the 1/12 WLToys 12428, which is very similar, just smaller.

I like the looks of the FS 53910 quite a bit. Do any of you have both? Would you recommend one over the other?

I don't have Wltoys, I have feiyue fy03 and marauder. Fs racing is much better car. Not just scale different, fs racing is better in every aspect. I don't have k949 so I don't know how it works. But for this price marauder is very good car. Helion dominus 1/10sc is same car. On the other side I am pretty sure that one of these 3wltoys is clone of vattera TH so y can use vattera parts for upgrades.


I am pretty satisfied with my feiyue so I wanted to try some lower chassis

I guess it depends on what you want really ,the 10428 has the live rear axle design and a two speed gearbox , the fs 53910 is a fairly conventional modern chassis buggy with a rock racer style body .
If you want a fast good handling car then the FS 53910 will be better ,if you want to try a little climbing or serious rough terrain then the 10428 will be better.
I have a Twin Hammers and after some mods I think it's the most fun car to drive that I have ,but it's very much my opinion and not everybody's taste.

WLToys 10428 is running around $150-$180 shipped depending. The K949 is essentially the same, but I believe with no LED's on top. It's only available one place for approx $146 shipped.

the FS 53910 is currently available from Banggood at approx $142 shipped, so they are very comparable in price.

This is tremendously helpful, thank you. I know the Feiyue and the WLToys 12428 are not the same, but they are VERY similar, and can share many, but not all, parts. So this really helps seeing the FS 53910 Marauder side by side with the Feiyue and understanding that the FS 53910 is better all around.

The K949 and the 10248 from WLToys are essentially clones of the Twin Hammers (from what I gather, reading here) and are the 1/10 scale big brothers to the 12428, and similar to the Feiyue FY-03 as well.

I am leaning towards the Marauder, as it would be nice to have a different design to go along with my 12428.

Thanks -- I am just looking for fun and light bashing. Since I have the WLtoys 12428 1/12 rock racer already, perhaps the FS 53910 will be a nice change.

No problem, I can send you more pics. I bought brushed version and ordered separately 3900kv brushless motor and ESC. So for the same price as brushless version I got brushed motor and ESC for free.
