Default Taiwanesekid's 1:18

Well, this is my first hobby grade 1:18 r/c, and you guys have probably never heard of it. I got it two years ago in Taiwan, but because I didn't have enough space in my luggage, I didn't bring it back with me and only recently, I got my aunt to send it back for me.

And here it is, an Anderson Model MZ4 Monster Truck. I have no idea what kind of things I can do to it since its made by a very, very small R/C company in Taiwan. But its not bad out of the box. Decent speed, not bad handling (comes with oil shocks).

After a bit of interwebs searching, it looks as if I got meself a copy of the Duratrax Vendetta ST. Anybody know anything about it?

...And after a bit more research, it looks like the Duratrax Vendetta series is just a rebrand of the Anderson MZ4.

As I said before, apparently the Anderson MB4 is the original of the many variants of R/C's sold in America, like the Duratrax Vendetta. Its like the Toyota Altezza in JDM market and the Lexus IS in the USDM market. Same car, different name, except in the case of the MB4, its being sold by a different company.
