err its not rtr... lol

the pro doesnt come with any electrics or engine etc..

it has 7075 copper coloured alloy rather than 60XX purple alloy...that the easiest spotter.

thanks mate , the purple alloy IS the give away , me thinks this person is tring to have my leg up , it does come with radio gear and an engine but the engine is the one supplied with the swift 2 (if you purchased a pro you tend to put more of a race jobbie in it) and being used and having a clear out its not uncomman to sell your pro (swift/hyper whatever) with engine and radio inc ,but every picture i see of the swift2 looked exactly like this 'PRO VERSION' i have purchased , the saga will continue

nope thats a bog standard swift2 with a hyper 7 body on it..i would not have paid that mate..no way.

i would claim my money back under false advertising and send the car back..he said its a swift pro and it certainly isnt..

Looks all plastic with some carbon fibre print to me.

And IMO you should not run an air filter like that!

It looks like their is no oil in it and there should IMO be a covering foam.

Rear wheels look skinny to me.

Nice car though and a snap at 200.

If he has rebuilt it and replaced any worn parts.

Although saying that, looks like the tyres are worn out.

its not a snap at 200...you can pick new ones up on ebay for less :(

thats a stock hyper 7 airfilter...they are single element.

i would seriously reconsider sending it back and claiming a refund as the item is not as decribed.

i do agree with dave on the price ,was looking at hyper 7s but they were tatty or i got out bid . see the swift , see the carbon and the alloy and the word 'PRO' and had to make a very quick decision as it was due to end , i am waiting to hear what the seller has to say about it , we will just have to wait and see , if he has misdecribed it i WILL get a refund and start looking again , nice to see the hyper body fits thou i have one in ferrari race colours ready to fit

if you mean that one its a swift 2 not a swift pro..listen to what people who know about them are telling you not what dumb ebay sellers are flogging.

Cheers technicly mine is a Nanda no purple or Shuie stickers anywhere but that will all change...lol  Any one run one with a TTr .21 Pro like the one in the Fusion....I think for the young lad it will be a good weapon of choice.....Out the Box i was very impressed with the Buggie looks strong.
