This is JQ Products "THE Car" Yellow Edition 1/8 Scale Competition PRO Buggy Kit. THECar is now about 1 and a half years old, and it is time for a serious update. During the first year, JQ updated a variety of parts, including the plastics and the hingepins. All these changes were made to address durability issues and JQ acted fast improving the weaknesses. The next step, was to focus on improving the handling. During the end of last year JQ tested a variety of ideas and concepts, and were able to improve the handling to the point that an updated version was justified. Now they bring us the Yellow Edition! From this point forward, every JQ car will be accompanied with a color designation as a way to differentiate between different variations of the vehicle. THECar will always be THECar, and in true JQ fashion this unique nomenclature is what will be used to identify the different models in the JQ line.
