A Pretty Random Smattering of Crap

Sometimes we get clear, concise themes for a Woot Plus sale. Sometimes we get a panicked plea to just offload a bunch of stuff with no real rhyme or reason. This is one of those times.

I'm a little confused about the ZD Racing ZRB-2 Off-Road Buggy pictured here (the red one). The picture is of one with a nitro engine but the description talks about a brush-less motor and battery. A quick search online shows that the ZRB-2 is a Nitro buggy not an electric buggy.

I've had friends who had good things to say about the topsy turveys, so why not?

Galaxy 10...I'm waiting for a cover for the Galaxy 10. Not the 7. [sigh] I continue to wait.

There's a great write-up on the Stories of War DVD collection in the review section at Amazon. Oh, and it's running $49.97 over there. Seems like it would make a great gift so I got one for myself.

I own the gaming keyboard (but not the keyset, I dont play MOH). The keyboard itself is great. The keys were bulky compared to my old scissor switch keyboard, but I got used to it pretty quick. There is nothing mind blowing about it, and it wont make you better at games, but it is a decent piece of hardware at a great deal. I paid $84 for it on amazon (after doing weeks of research) and have yet to regret it.

The only keyboards that can beat this would be a mechanical keyboard, but those are impossible to find for <100 unless you get a razor one on a deal. However, I read reviews about sticking keys and bad ergonomic design on it. Realistically, to get close to the same quality, youre looking at $150-$250.

This is ideal for the moderate to heavy gamer, and at this price point even the light gamer. I only game about 1-1.5hr a day average these days (not much compared to a lot of people). I don't compete in tournaments or anything like that, I just wanted something more reliable and professional.

I have also never had to return or had any issues with a steelseries product. I am a huge fan of the company and to date I have their keyboard, mouse, mousepad, and three sets of headphones. Again, no issues with anything. They are a Danish company though and relatively small (they cater pretty exclusively to hardcore clients), so service might not be amazingly fast, but still adequate.

I've googled around on the buggy and every site I found has the exact same specs as ours including the mention of a brushless motor.

Do you have a specific info that says differently?

If you look at the pictures it clearly shows a nitro motor and pipe.

When i do a search the ZRB-2 comes up as nitro and the ZRB-1 comes up as electric.

If it really is a nitro i will be all over it (not that I really need another).

Can we get an actual clarification of this before we purchase one?

thanks

ducky is right, the picture shows a nitro motor but the description is for an electric RC...maybe the model number matches the description, but the picture doesn't

Will the Galaxy Tab cover fit the Galaxy Tab 2? Did they change the outside when they changed the inside?

Does the Diamond Weather Station function as an alarm clock as well?

Hey TT,
Did you ever get an answer on whether the specs and photo are correct and this actually has the nitro motor? Or is it the electric motor in the description? I'm in for two if it's the nitro motor :-)

Thanks for the help

I've emailed to see if we got a sample in on this item. It might be Monday before I hear back though.

Thank you for the reply, I will keep checking back here for your confirmation and keep hoping that if it is actually the nitro model they don't sell out in the meantime. :'(

If you look under the spec instead of the features tab below the picture it says:
In the box:

ZD Racing ZRB-2 Large (1:8 Scale) R/C Off-Road 4WD Nitro Buggy

So the two descriptions are not matching. But the specs do mention nitro.

In for 2 of the keyboards. I bought a Shift when it was on sale for a small business and it's been fantastic. They primarily want more because it's great to be able to pop the keyset off for cleaning. The anti ghosting is useful as well especially when you're typing 120+ wpm which oddly will sometimes overwhelm keyboards. The usb and headphone ports don't get used much but it is useful to have them right there.

They got hold of the vendor. It is a Nitro car and our specs are wrong. New specs are on the way. Stay tuned.

Edit: features are updated to state "Nitro" glow fuel powered engine

I received my ZRB-2 nitro buggy yesterday. The instructions don't have any break-in information or nitro requirements. Anyone have any suggestions or maybe a link from zd racing that gives the proper info.
