Oh well I guess they have to cheat on something. I am actually quite happy with it. 1/12 8x8, model grade plastic on metal frames, light and sound with 3 speed controller for $900 CAD including shipping. Now only if they have the radar trailer I will be a happy camper. It is suppose to be available end of the year, but if it doesn't materialize I will try to get the cargo bed from the other version instead.

Got the bed from the other version and just painted it Tamiya Dark Yellow (Didn't bother trying to match the colour as the original vehicle has multiple shades of dark yellow). Metal bottom plate, all sides are hinged and latch lock.

Well that video is like the worst sell job for me. I didn't spent $1000 just to roll it down the hill, crash it into a concrete barrier and drop it from 4 feet up. Not to mention pulling my car. Kinda stupid in my opinion.

So you are saying if you saw the video first you would not have bought the truck?

Wasn't going to get it because of that........ As it turn out, which I figure as much, it is more like 1/14 than 1/12........ So if they would have advertise it as 1/14 it would have more incentive for me to get it, since that is the same scale as the Tamiya truck family.
I don't know man, but Chinese is suppose to be good at math, but none of these guys can do simple division. Just google the length of the real thing, divide it by what you have and you have the correct scale. Seems like a real difficulty with these Chinese manufacturers.

If this came with a snow plow I might be tempted.
