Team Losi 8ight 4WD competition buggy

Okay, so I’ll admit I know very little about remote-controlled cars, especially when buying them from proper RC websites (as opposed to whatever cartoon spin-off is on sale in Woolworths this week).

The proportions seem slightly off – it just seems muscular in the wrong places, if that makes any sense at all. Anyhoo, it’s a BMW 3-Series convertible, so it’ll sell like hot cakes.
