Oh crap! I want one of those! It's amazing how realistic looking it is.

I go off of the lake just in time to hit a dirt field right before my flux capacitor quite.

Hey, and it's only $2,600 or so for everything!

Actually, if you check out the parts list, seems to be a very solid model that would make a great 'mini' rock crawler.

Still too steep for my wallet!

Someone should make a Lexan one that looks more realistic. It shouldn't be too hard considering how simple the body is

i have a friend that had (dont know if hes still got it) a lexan forming machine he made. it was pretty cool but couldnt make bodies bigger than 12". so the xj body wouldnt work.
