Last year’s arrival of the Team Associated SC28 ($49.99) had me chomping at the bit to get one, however, after the first batch sold-out, my interest in this vehicle cooled. Thanks to a guest-review by Zach, “The Inconsistent TechDad”, I felt that I had a solid understanding of this vehicle and decided to hold onto…
