The dark impact is an electric remote control car. It is 1/10 scale, or 1/10 the size of an average car, and is powered by a 540 motor. It was a kit i bought, where i built it from the parts they gave me. It is supposed to be a 4WD car, but a while back when i was driving it, i crashed it into the curb by acciedent and one of the front wheel drive shafts went flying somewhere, and becasue it has a front differencial, it turned into a 2WD car. Besides that it is one of the more powerfull battery powered rc's, todays electric rc's haven't gotten that much better. The battery i bought runs the car for about a solid half an hour, which is pretty decent. It has been a great car, it is just a little higher maintenence than i would have liked. The only other problem i have had with it is i have stripped the main gear, which is plastic and really should be made out of aluminum, the first gear the motor's metal gear touches, so basically until i get a new gear the car doesn't move anywhere. It is really slick if you customize the cover, the cover that makes it somewhat resemble a car, i painted it this green and it looks pretty cool! Overall it is a really great RC car that is cool looking and powerfull! I have taken a bunch of videos of it but i couln't find any except one that i uploaded to ebay, that is the link below.
