    I think that just is the 4X4 version, Whats avaliable now is a 4X4 conversion for the original truck.

    its a 4x4 wheely king, previouslly the only way to get a wheely king in 4x4 was to buy a seperate kit, with this one, it comes pre-installed, and RTR.
    look on ebay.com, you can buy a brand new one for $199(US) plus post.

    well, its blue, so its kind of different i guess.

    but yeah the red/original one is RWD. this one is apparently using the rear axle on the front with an extra drive shaft and hey presto! watch the RRP magically raise $50!

    well you still save $25 instead of buying a standard one and buying the kit, dont have to install anything, and have a cooler shell. im gonna get one of these later, just for some rockcrawling mini-fun!

    probably wouldn't need too many...try it, buy one, lock the diffs, and give it a few runs...mod it from there.
