General RC Information

All OEM. Nothing special here. This was built from a Turbo Scorpion kit, and I bought all the Beetle parts separately. I did manage to find some vintage Duratrax slicks for it, which is really cool. Still looking for the driver figure. Can't seem to find that part in stock anywhere.
