Good video. I like when it goes off roading. It is kind of funny how it revs, but it goes at a nice pace. Are these geared somehow that it goes the speed it does?

At just before 0:45 in, it looks like it is telling you to hang on!

Thanks,

It's driven by a worm gear, so it's pretty tame.

Very nice!

This makes me want to get the Baja Bug going this summer. The plastic chassis has become very brittle and has broken a few times, may make it a good candidate for an RC conversion.

Just scored a vintage dune buggy on eBay yesterday. My old man got me one in 1969 when I was 9 years old. Always kinda regretted not keeping it. I got involved in Nitro RC last year and decided to look for a dune buggy to add to my collection. Glad I found this site. Will be buying lots of parts!

My Dune Buggy showed up yesterday! It's a lot nicer than I expected. Good compression, tires good, body and pan in great shape. Already ordered everything I need to get it running from this site. Thanks for the great service. Looking forward to running it with my son and grandkids.

My first experience with glow engines as a kid, seems like mine was bigger and faster but probably just my perspective at 9 or 10 yrs old. I think the engine on that buggy implanted the passion for the rest of my life. Thanks for the memories.
