Thanks for the find, Jake

 

the scoop at this time is they are sold exclusively at Rite Aids.

 

not all states have Rite Aids.

 

there are many of us with access to the Rite Aids that are willing to ship these to the deprived.

 

I am one of the ones willing to ship at cost of the item plus shipping.  Here in NC they are 19.99 plus tax 1.55=21.54. 

 

If we can convince Rite Aifd to offer them online, that would sove the access issue.

 

So far the colors are red and blue.

they run on AA's and 9v battery.

 

PM or anyothers that pitch in to send these to the deprive areas.

 

Happy RC smarting!

 

PS They were not on ebay as of last night.

OK,... got my Red RC Smart today in the Mail... Un-pact it from the shipping box, and I thought to myself, NICE...<:-)) Vary nicely made... Its got some heft to it... I fueled it up with 3 AA's and a 9 Volt in the controller... I put it on the floor, and did a safety check.... Blinkers working(ok) ~ Headlights working(ok) ~ Steering working(ok) ~ Forward-Reverse working(ok)... I then Nail the Gas...!!! Oh boy...Hang on...You really have to be a WheelMan to drive this Smart...!!! I'm driving on a tile floor, and she's got enough power to spin the rear rubber...!!! Next up, to see how the smart does in a all out Race for the Money... I get ready to launch... Then I nail it, the smart is behind, but gaining on my two CAT's... They are Fast, but I cut them off in the corner... Hit one in the A$$... I stayed on the Gas, and pushed that Cat the rest of the way around the corner...!!! The Cats are maxed out, and losing their grip, and one spins out, crashing into the wall... The smart is flat out as I pass the other Cat... The smarts engine is screaming as I take the Checker Flag passing through the living room doorway... The RC Smart is a runner...<:-)) Remember first time Driver's, that you have to get right up on the wheel to keep her under control...!!!
Info Note: "Drifting"... YUP you can Drift this Babe on a Tile Floor...!!! Hook her into a Left hander, and keep the Gas Peddle Pinned, and she's going to do the nicest 360's you ever saw...<:-))

Thanks again GetSmrt28277 for getting me the RC Smart... I'm going to Orlando Smart Center tomorrow... Taking the RC Smart along... Going to be Smoking the smart around their show room... I hope they have something to Race...<:-))

Oh, heres a Pic of some of the Race Track (tile floor) in my Big Great Room, and also note one of Cats in todays Race competition when it was a Baby... Bonne's all grown up now, and Race Ready...<:-))


I just got 2 Red & Silver RC Smart cars at the Rite Aid near my house. One for me and one for Jodi because we both have Red Smarties. We can wait to try them out...it'll be fun.
The Rite Aid near us had 8 RC Smart Cars total, 4 Blue & Silver and 2 Red & Silver left after I got my two Red ones.

Cool... Let us know if multiple Red's have the same Controller frequency, and interfere with each other when used at the same time...???

OK,... here's what it L00KS like when your sitting in a RC Smart just before a RACE Starts at my house...!!! Intimidating competition right...!!! Bonnie is the Top pic all grown up now, and L00KING vary confident... Then their's Fluffy in the bottom pic with that Smart A$$ swagger to her walk...!!! We'll see in the next RACE...!!! I think the Red RC Smart Car is going to Blow their Rear Ends right off the Track once again...

Now for the videos...sounds like you are having too much fun!
Got mine yesterday. and the little sucker is pretty good. for twenty dollars it is a bargain! it works on the carpet and flies on the hard floors... Now to paint the trideon black...
After last night's RC races at the Dragon, it quickly became apparent that all reds are on the same frequency, and all blues are on the same frequency (different from red) - so we started with races of red against blue (timed), then devolved into synchronized chaos - running multiples of each color from one controller each. LOTS of fun.
Neon's smart escaped out of the box!
