Kyosho Scorpion XXL VE/GP 1/7 Scale 2wd Buggy Kit
What makes the Scorpion VE/GP unique is the multi-compatible design that allows you to build the buggy in a "VE" electric motor, or a "GP" nitro engine configuration! The kit includes all the necessary chassis componenets, allowing you to pick the power system you prefer. Plus, the design allows you to convert back and forth between nitro and electric power! Each power source has its unique characteristics to be experienced and enjoyed. All you need is the radio system and power system of your choice (electric motor, battery and accessories or gas engine, receiver pack, fuel and starting tools).
Additionally, the kit includes a range of performance parts that were previously optional such as universal swing shafts, high grip SXT-003 and SXT-004 tires, with the high-strength steel spur gear. These option parts boost performance and fun even more. Plus, a special spare parts pack made from limited edition neon blue color plastic is included. So for example, in addition to the standard black wheels, blue wheels are also included. This adds a stylish color coordinated dimension to the sharp racing performance unique to this 1/7th scale buggy.

On 6S with a Mamba Monster system it has heaps of power.
On the sand it performs the best and is a lot of fun.
I have had problems with the diff. The diff cup has failed twice now and destroyed the internal diff gears.
I am attempting to find a solution. Hopefully soon!)
