It’s kind of hard to justify spending $15,000 on a remote-controlled toy truck when you can get a real car for that much money. But there are certain advantages to opting for this 1:3 scale monster from Mammuth Works. You don’t need a licence to drive it, you don’t need insurance, it’s easy to park on a footpath, and there’s minimal risk of getting hurt if you roll it doing stupid stunts.
And notice we said minimal risk, because at 80kg if this thing accidentally hits you at full speed it’s gonna hurt. Thankfully, you don’t necessarily have to drop 15 grand on the Rewarron, because Mammuth Works is promising cheaper $10,000 and $5000 versions that come with less powerful engines and simpler options. But when you’re buying an RC toy that’s about 2m long, you literally have to go big or go home.
