What We Like:
The VESLA.5 is quite an amazing feat of production – huge, 1/5 scale ride with a monstrous amount of power tucked under a caged Class 1 looking buggy – it’s a very cool ride. We’d love to give something like this a go and see what driving a big ol’ 12S-powered ride is like.
What We’re Not Sure About:
Although it’s expensive, you get what you pay for – to us, it actually seems like a great deal seeing the list of items it comes with!
