Best Little 4x4
I bought one of these after seeing Daniel Siegl posted a Video on this. I did some body modifications (paint and a stinger bumper) on it like all jeepers do. and took it with less then 10 min run time to Verona Italy Model expo 2018. I ran though its paces on the massive scale track they had for 2 days. While also running my Axial truck with D44 axles(awesome by the way none better and steering angle amazing). But the Black rock did awesome. Climbed about anything i could find including a hill over 6 feet tall and almost a 45 deg angle. This little truck is just great. Only issues i see with it is the battery doesn't fit without sliding it too the back of the jeep. Making it a bit tail heavy in the uphills. but with good throttle control it is no issue to climb. Very durable. I must have rolled it 30+ times and only broke the mirrors off. I would like to see a bit more wheel speed but i think the speed is fine for the everyday type of guy. Great product

Gelande 2 1/18 black rock
I recently purchased a gelande 2 1/18 black rock and it has been a blast to crawl in with. It is a very capable rig for its size and it highly customizable. Rc4wd and shapeways offer a ton of aftermarket parts that really bring out the detail of the truck. I also had a minor issue with the esc and with the help of their customer service department (guy named Kenny) they were able to send me a new esc with in a week. Great customer service and overall great purchase so far. I will defiantly be a return customer, hopefully a TF2 gelande 1:18 is in the making. Thanks again for the help Rian

Absolutely great.
Other than needing different shocks the build quality is unmatched in all categories. Realistic. Would recommend a bent steering rod to clear the body but even stock it goes just about anywere

Incredible build quality
Overall very pleased with the quality of the parts and build of the truck. Control at low speed is impressive and responsive. Would recommend it to anyone who desires the best 1/24 scale possible. Only flaws ive found is the body weight is a little too heavy and could use a little more travel in the suspension but it works great (just a personal preference}. Surpassed my expectations and very happy with the purchase and platform!
