That is too funny ;D
 
don't get me started on a coolest body rampage. here is a photo of my last onroad body for my hpi super nitro rs4. it's a corvette c-5 done in blue to green to purple chromalusion paint. with a tear design and some neon goodies. (no not the kind that glow) anyways takes about 2 days to do... but this photo is of the car many days in use. it's torn up. you should see them when they are new. i got sponcer cars too for races but i like these better >:D

The best looking R/C Av I've seen so far is the 1/6 scale by Newbright. Found it at tower hobbies. Should look good running next to my USA-1.
Unfortunately I don't think it's as easily modded as the traxx etc.

I would like to find a good looking body that will fit (or could be made to fit) the USA-1 Chassis. That would be one great looking R/C unit.

yeah its nice but its battery powered and its the brand wal mart sells so esimated run time 4-5 mins of good run time because its so big it would be ok i would just put it on my shelf for looks but maybe take off that enormus fake looking brush gaurd
 
I have an indigo blue Avalanche radio controlled truck that someone gave me for my birthday last year. It's made by Nikko and is actually pretty close to the real thing. I also have the super small scale model Chevrolet sent me for registering on their web site, I had already purchased my Av, and the scale model is about 1/3 smaller than the Escalade Cadillac sent me. It's still pretty cool though. :B:

I looked at the Tower website and have the following questions:

1) the Av is red, but there's a note that colors may vary - by how much?

2) it says 1/6 scale but it's only 25" long - that translates to a 12.5' length and 5.5' width real scale Av - it's more like 1/10 scale

3) The cost is listed at $139 - anybody know the shipping costs or can this be purchased at an R/C store?

4) how do you operate the turn signals and other sound effects?

5) it appears to be on back order - wonder how long it will take to be in stock again?
 
I have the red 1/6 scale Av. It is 1/6 scale which means it fits the 12" dolls. You can fit a GI-Joe inside. (And I have, DON'T ASK!)
The turn signals work every time you turn the wheels. It has a separate button for the Horn and Alarm. I bought mine at the KB Toys website for $99.00. I don't remember what shipping costs were but it is a big box.
The batteries do last a long time. Better then my E-Maxx. It only works on flat surfaces. It doesn't have any power for dirt, grass, and tall carpet. It has two speed settings and I always choose low gearing for more power. They did an awesome job on the detail. I was even impressed with the interior.
It also makes engine revving sounds as well.
 
it does sound pretty good acually i buy stuff from tower hobbies all the time shipping on that would vary depending on if u wanted next day would be around 30 bucks 2 day would be around 15 bucks and ground is 6 bucks i think maybe thats just on parts i donno it would be around that if u bought it from a hooby shop it would be more than tower because they got good prices and hobby shops usally have higher prices and it says it will be available mid october
