This is JQ Products "THE eCar" 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit. After declaring "We will never make an electric 1:8th. They are stupid", JQProducts has taken their first step into the world of electric offroad. Heavily influenced by the successful Yellow Edition Nitro 1/8 Buggy, THE eCar uses the same front and rear gearbox assemblies as the nitro version, with only the chassis, left side guard, center differential/motor mount and dogbones being different. THE eCar features a typical e-Buggy chassis layout. This weight distribution and added weight of the 4S LiPo batteries in THE eCar helps to deliver improved handling qualities compared to it's nitro brother. This has been proven with race wins around the world.

JQ Products "THE eCar" 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit
This is the best 1/8th scale buggy I have ever driven. It feels a lot like my Kyosho MP9e tki but with better hair pin steering, and I mean MUCH better. It turns in better than any 1/8th I have ever driven (box stock too) and does not get loose on the backend. It holds the line through the on/off power transition well. I have owned Kyosho MP9e tki, Tekno EB48, and Losi 8ight 2.0 1/8th scale buggies (and had wheel time with Mugen XB7, X-ray XB9, serpent 2.0, Losi 3.0) and this is by far the best driving kit. It also seems to wear much better than my Kyosho based on longterm results from other local drivers. I was worried about the small shocks but they do not seem to be an issue at all and have no plans to change them out.
