This is the JQ Products "THE Car" Ready to Run Competition 1/8 Scale Buggy. JQ Products is setting a new standard for performance in the RTR 1/8 scale buggy market. Using clever design and production arrangements, JQ Products has been able to produce a high spec RTR 1/8 scale buggy that is as close to the Pro version of THE Car as possible, at a price that makes it affordable to get into an 1/8 scale buggy!

Most RTR's use bargain bin equipment that makes them unreliable and hard to drive, even for experienced racers. This is not the case with THE RTR! Sav÷x digital servos and an Alpha engine were chosen as standard equipment based on their performance, as well as their affordability. The included Sav÷x digital servos are strong and fast enough to control the buggy with a level of precision that is similar to cars with high end servos, while the standard pull start Alpha engine has more than enough power for this super lightweight buggy. Plus, when you drive THE Car you have access to an unbelievable world wide support team that is fielded by a wide range of drivers, including JQ himself! So whether its engine tuning or setup advice, JQ Products is behind you 110% to help you achieve success on the track.
