I was looking for something small to goof around with when the weather was too crappy to play outside in the winter. I had been looking at these for awhile so when Tower did their $50 off $250 deal the other day I ordered the new Nero body I've been needing and preordered a Proline Ambush.

They aren't cheap but I remember when I was a Mini-Z addict back in the day and those cost just a pretty penny too. Mini-Zs weren't nearly as advanced or as purpose built as this rig either. I can't wait until the aftermarket catches up to it and you can go mad with aluminum upgrades. It's gonna be a fun little toy.

They look neat and while costing a bit more than I was hoping I might still buy one or two for me and my little guy to play with around the house.

I was really on the fence about them because the price is pretty high for the scale. Stupid Tower Hobbies ran a one day promo last week that suckered me in. Lol

I just bought my son an ECX Temper yesterday. From the video, it is not nearly as nice as the proline but it was less than 1/2 as much. Aside from the worm gears on the proline, the ECX appears to be just as capable. I tried to talk him into the Basher Rocksta but he wasn't having it. I might pick one of those up just to show him what he is missing with AWS and MOA.

I was wrong above, the 1/24 Temper we have is worm drive and motor brakes quite well. It is the first crawler I've driven and they are way more fun than I expected. The Basher has been ordered!

You'll love them, the inexpensive parts more then make up for the vehicles price.Woodland Scenics makes scale mountain/cave/desert diorama kits around $20 a kit, it takes $20-30 just to cover a single box with expanding foam so the price of using scale stuff is actually fairly reasonable.This is not my work, but its a fun read and extremely inspiring.
