Pre-order on Hooben's website for $580. Looks like they will leverage their 8x8 running gear for more similar vehicles, ie BTR-4E.

It seems they are quoting all the RC Kootai specs and using the RC Kootai pics. They seem to be reselling that version. I brought those points up to them on FB and they said some BS about Hooben making it better than RC Kootai.

I was surprised to see this appear out of thin air & have to think they're simply reselling under their own brand. Certainly nothing wrong with that but at least say so.

Unless they designed this better than they did their T-55, you will just get a huge pile of loose parts... I'll wait a while, a LONG while before I think about buying one of these.

My point was Hooben DIDN'T design it. They just contacted RC Kootai and offered to sell their product and made the ad look like it was Hooben product. When I called them out on that fact, they said they made theirs better than the RC Kootai version which is complete and utter BS on Hooben's part.

Heard from Stanlley this week and they are saying my Stryker is heading to RC Tank Legion now from the factory. He should be shipping it out within a week hopefully.
