JQ Products Announces THECar RTR

JQ THECar RTR 1/8th BuggyYou may recall last month JQ Products announced the special “Yellow Edition” update to their high performance 1/8 scale radio controlled buggy dubbed THECar. Well it turns out the guys over at JQ have yet another card up their sleeve, this time a ready to run (RTR) version of THECar aimed at the amateur racer. Not only did they add a 2.4Ghz radio system with Savox servos to the mix but they also were able to retain many of the features of the original pro version while still keeping the price under the $400 mark!

“We wanted to create a new standard of performance for 1:8th RTR Buggies. By clever design and production arrangements, we have been able to keep the specification of this vehicle high, and as close to the Pro version as possible. The servos and engine have been chosen based on their performance as well as their affordability. We wanted to make sure that the servos are strong and fast enough to be able to control the car, in a similar fashion to actual race cars with top of the line servos. Many RTRs have so slow and weak servos, that they are hard to drive for even experienced racers. This is not the case with this RTR, as the Savox servos are strong and fast enough for the task. The engine is a standard pull start RTR unit, and it has more than enough power for this super lightweight RTR, that only weights 3300g. The street price is expected to land at €399 in Europe and $399 in the US and it should be available worldwide in August.”
