New Dromida brand launches with 1/18 scale RTRs

Sep 25, 2013 2 Comments by

The new Dromida (pronounced like “Andromeda” minus the “an”) lineup of 1/18 scale RTRs look like pretty solid examples of the well-proven shaft-driven 4WD formula, but what really sets this new brand apart is price–the BX4 buggy, MT4 monster truck, and SC4 short-course truck are set to hit shelves at just $99.99. And that’s with a 2.4GHz radio system, full ball bearings, waterproof electronics, a 1300mAh NiMH battery, and plenty of scoot–over 20mph, according to Dromida. You even get oil-filled shocks–for the price, and the scale, we figured they’d be friction jobs. Nope.


Naturally, RCCA will have a full review. Until then, you can visit the Dromida site, join the conversation on our Facebook page, and scope the shots below.

    The second time I drove mine the shocks and pinion broke and no one around has any parts. And wasn’t able to find any generic ones for it. Kind of lame. But I fixed it and its working again just has a messed up front wheel now. I can’t find anywhere on the net to buy replacement parts wich is weird.
