Hobby King GT-2 2.4Ghz 2Ch Tx & Rx (AUS Warehouse)
I bought a 260S today from a web based re-direction from the International Warehouse to the Australian Warehouse and yet if I look for the 260S via a normal search in the aussie warehouse, its not there.? The 260 is but not the 260S? If I get an email on Monday telling me there was a mistake and I am getting the non-tuned pipe 260 version, I will go postal. I will keep you up to date.
Hitec is the Best or if you looking at something cheaper i'd stick with the ones on eBay as they sell the cheaper ones but i find if you use them alot or leave one turned on for hours they burn out

Well done Hobby King. A 5th scale off road buggy for a great price. I have just got one of these Baja buggy's. And being involved in racing and r/c car hobby for over 25 years this is the best of any car i have brought. That is a great car for a great price. All parts can be replaced with HPI or as i will do, start upgrading at a cheaper starting price. Buggy goes just as hard as the HPI SS. Which it is a copy of. If your looking to spend some of your hard earn cash on a 5th scale off roader, look no further.

part1of3 Aussie warehouse packaging, unpacking. this is my first order from the aussie warehouse. Have to say great service, it was in the post three hours after i ordered it. Great job It was tripple boxed very safe arrived in perfect condition. The only problem i have is why aren't the servos in australia. had to wait two extra weeks for the servos. the recomended servos dont fit straight in, so make sure you have a file handy and a drill too relocate the holes.

arrived fully assembled. installed the hobby king servo combo, took a bit of dremel time to fit the steering servo and the throttle servo was a tight fit. steering is poor, will take some tweeking to get a descent turning circle, long wheel base. had it running well for 5 minutes then it stalled and wouldnt restart. primer bulb got hard to press, found the breather hole in fuel cap was blocked with plastic flap. removed the blockage and its running perfectly. Fantastic baja for the price, Hobby king will put HPI out of buisness if they keep this up. lol Thanks Hobby King.

This is a great machine for the price.
I bought 2 units with the recommended servos. On one unit the steering servo required modification to the housing to get it in. Nothing a file didn't fix and took about 5 minutes. The steering servo for both units didn't quite fit the screw down holes. I changed the screws to larger size and it fixed the issue.
The manual is written well in English, but is missing crucial items such as fuel ratio, running in requirements and even where and how to mount the servos. I pulled the unit apart and worked out that all servos go on to the black humpback unit after looking at it.
The exhaust doesn't suppress sound very well. it is a loud car and I run mine on an acre and I am worried it will annoy the neighbors.
Over a well built unit and runs well. Had to adjust the idle up a little to get it to not cut out. I think when I run it in a little more i will adjust it back again. Both cars run well and are very quick.
I also bought the 2.4Ghz Hobbyking transmitter/receiver combo. This worked perfectly out of the box.
I found that the steering needs to be setup correctly to get it to turn. I used the supplies servo horn (single arm) and used the 3rd hole. This gives good steering. Most of the time I throttle up and flick the back out to increatse the turning radius.
In short- awesome machine and I am having a great time driving it. It jumps gre
