This is the Kyosho DRX VE Demon 1/9 ReadySet Electric Rally Car. Realistic scale wheelbase dimensions, Kyoshos proven full time 4WD drive train, ORION KV2400/Vortex R10 sensorless brushless power, and an ultra realistic 1/9 scale body have been combined to make this car a true piece of rally art! Aggressive handling characteristics and an incredible power system allow you to turn any open area into a racing circuit, with the relentless drive of a true WRC machine.

Just about everything you need to live your rally fantasy has been included in this fully assembled ReadySet chassis, including the KT-200 2.4GHz radio system that features dual-rate settings and automatically manages the frequency band, with an optional failsafe function that slows the throttle if radio signal is lost. Plus, the DRX VE is compatible with the DBX/DST platform and shares 60% of its parts with its nitro brothers so parts availability is not an issue. The Orion Vortex ESC/Motor system is pre-installed and features a smoother power band and more punch compared to its predecessor, with a 2400kV 540 Motor that can handle up to 11.1V LiPo power. The package is rounded out with big bore, plastic body oil filled shocks, a digital steering servo, and a variety of setup options that allow the car to be setup for any condition.

Kyosho DRX VE Demon 1/9 ReadySet Electric Rally Car
this thing is a blast .. i have several rally cars {wr8 being one} and this thing out handles in a very fun way .. i can be a basher ..does just fine on 3s{but like all rally cars on 3s you will eat tires.} but the big selling point for me is the handling . super fun .i havnt broke a thing on it and i have beat the heck out of it . my buddy has the blue/silver subi body and it is alittle brittle . but the yellow kyosho is just fine.
two things i would do ..
1:replace battery holder for wr8 straps .
2:buy and add the extra gears for the three diffs..super cheap and helps keep from breaking down the fluid on long 3s runs.)

Kyosho DRX VE Demon 1/9 ReadySet Electric Rally Car
Let me put the review in as few words as possible, I like the looks and finish of the Kyosho DRX VE Demon and the lexan chassis cover to protect from dirt and dust doing component damage is nice. But there are area's that give me great pause and concern considering the price:

1) Really? Plastic Shocks at this price?
2) The batter "cover" only lifts on one side, you have to bend it to get the battery in?
3) The thin Dog-bone wheel hex drive shaft look like they're made with the same stock as thin Hex wrenches and won't last long. Come ON!
4) Tires are too hard for legit dirt Rally tracks.
5) Recycled chassis pan from other Kyosho RC trucks and it's not even Carbon fiber as this price!
6) Come on, is it 1/8, or 1/9th scale? The chassis and some components are from their 1/9th scale truck. How about standardizing at a real 1/8th!)
