Kyosho ReadySet MAD Bug VEi 4wd Buggy

We’ve reviewed this same platform as the Rage VE, and it’s got the three Fs you want in an RTR: Fast, Fun, and aFfordable. Orion brushless power, a really slick set of aluminum shocks, and extra cage detail for the Bug body set this ride apart, and the Synchro radio is a cut above most RTR transmitters. Full details from Kyosho below.
