Someone here got out of the hobby and sold his stash of kits to another club member and I bought this one from him. The guy must have found a closeout deal on The Dude because he had 9 of the kits!

Mr. Bob, I hope you meant 50' (at least)...

If it were at a steep discount, I wouldn't bat an eye on getting one or more of them. I'd have to try a motor upgrade too. The biggest problem that I remember is they tend to be single use. Maybe some of the sealing tire goop could resurrect one? Sometimes?
