It's actually a little under $500 when you buy all the other things you need... the Yokomo Drift cars is the car only - you still ned a radio controller, speed control, battery, charger, AA batteries for the radio controller, paint for the body, super glue for the tires, I think you need a motor too (not sure - didn't check their website for specs), plus you have to assemble the thing. I tell you though - the chassis used is based on a world championship winning car... I used to work for an R/C magazine and an R/C manufacturer for a few years and I was all into the competitive R/C scene. Very addicting, especially if you're competitive and you get into local parking lot racing

BTW these aren't referred to as toys anymore, they're referred to as R/C models, since you build them, upgrade them, etc. I think the XMODS car also fits into this label IMO, unlike those other Radio Shack "disposable" R/C cars

Nah... I sold all my R/C stuff about 2 years ago when I got out of the hobby, although I'm thinking of buying the Yokomo car because... well, I miss the hobby
