Real Or Fake feature

Remote control vehicles have come a long way from the days when the controller was connected to the vehicle by a wire. Nowadays they’ve become so realistic it can be hard to tell the difference between an off-road RC car and a real off-road vehicle. Here are a few awesome photos of very realistic off-road RC cars.

The bumper’s 3/8-inch-thick winch plate accommodates popular models from Warn, Superwinch and Smittybilt. The rest of the bumper is precision CNC-manufactured from 3/16-inch steel. Rock Krusher bumpers are shipped in raw steel. Grade 8 and L9 mounting hardware is included, as are replacement steering-box bolts. A stinger hoop is optional.
