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.
