I got to try the M-80 out in Sept. at the Hobby Show in Chicago. These cars are awsome! They look like they are made strait off of a 1:64 scale hot wheel car and they dont have the "cartoony" look of a BCG. They handle great and are pretty quick, alittle heavy, but doesnt seem to affect it. The only thing is, i dunno if you can upgrade parts or not.

Yup, its 1/64 scale as stated on the box. Don't forget a full size cabin cruiser is larger than a full size car. The boat is a little larger than the 1/64 scale cars but thats to be expected as its a 1/64 scale version of a boat. The boat is only slightly larger than the cars though. The only place I have seen them was on ebay by that particular seller. They just came out so they won't be very easy to find for a few weeks. It looks to be comparable in size to a Bit Motorcycle.

I just picked up one of those boats tonight. In a few words, the one I got was a POS. It steers using 2 motors, but the quality of the manufacture wasn't consistent, so one motor spins faster than the other, making the boat turn around in circles, and impossible for it to go in a straight line. The battery placement should be centered on the hull, but someone at the factory decided to mount the battery on the left, so the boat sits tilted to the left in the water. I was having a problem with the buttons on the remote, they would light up when you press down on them, but no signal was being transmitted. I had to wiggle the buttons on the controller to get them to work. I can't expect much for something that costs $20, but I'm taking it back to the shop in the morning.
