This is the gas-powered, remote-controlled dune buggy that scales dirt dunes and whips around hairpin turns on competitive racing tracks. The 1/5-scale dune buggy is powered by a 23cc gas engine and has machined rack and pinion gears, propelling the vehicle up to 40 mph. The four-wheel drivetrain provides quick starts and optimal power for rapidly climbing steep dunes while the 22″-wide wheel base resists roll-overs when taking turns at high speeds.
The oil-filled aluminum shocks maintain the dune buggy’s stability when it lands towering jumps, allowing it to quickly regain forward momentum and stay ahead of the pack. Four, 4 3/4″-diameter pneumatic wheels have deep treads that provide traction on loose sand and dirt surfaces while the aluminum chassis and injection-molded roll cage withstand the rigors of competitive racing on off-road tracks. When the 740cc gas tank is full the buggy provides up to 40 minutes of free-wheeling racing before requiring a pit stop. Price $1,500
