Smile Volvo 350L

I was just wanting to know if anyone would know where I could buy a Volvo 350 L. I had the chance to drive a Volvo 330e. I would like to get one. it is close to the same size. Thanks for the help.

That THS loader in the link looks pretty similar to the RC4WD 870K, as for the shape of the body...... With different performance and details though.
If I had the 870, I would slap some some of those Volvo stickers on it...

Thumbs up Re: Volvo 350L

Couldn’t agree more! I could never justify spending that amount of money on a rc model especially on my salary. My cap is 3K that I’m willing to spend. I’m not about ready to take out a loan and pay interest on a rc model lol. But hey who am I to judge, everyone has different priorities in life.

Were lucky to have Eagle Machinery around or else the rc construction hobby would be out of reach for many

Priorities... THAT is why I started out with a brand new/newly assembled/barely used truck for $300 than pay twice that amount on a new kit.

Justifying that amount before knowing if I'll even like it would scare me (let alone borrowing money on it), even on these construction vehicles.

If your paying $600 on a truck kit your shopping in the wrong place, shouldnít have to pay more than 400 on the most expensive Tamiya kit.
