What does a Dale Jr # 8Hobby Grade box look like?
More comparisions of the 1-6th scale "Hobby Grade" Nascar Rc cars, "First Edition Base Versions" and "Second Edition Base Versions."
Heres the Dale Earnhardt Jr # 8 "Hobby Grade" and the Base versions 6th scale rc car. This particular driver has 6 different versions.
ALL 6 VERSIONS ARE DIFFERENT !!!
Again, front and back panels of the boxes are different. "Hobby Grade" will be printed on the lower left corner of the box along with the "Hobby Grade" features. Those "Hobby Grade" features are also printed on the box top on the left hand side and on the bottom front edge of the box. Look at the bottom edge of this particular HG Jeff Gordon has the "Added Features" sticker. See the printed "burning tires" ? Also note that the remote control transmitters are in a different location in the box. Transmitters on Second Edition Base Versions (full plastic chassis) are in the same place as "Hobby Grades". On First Edition Base Versions, (foam padded chassis) they are infront of the car. A dead giveaway for ANY BASE VERSION is this lack of "Hobby Grade" on the lower left corners and 100 yard range on the transmitter."Hobby Grade" range is 50 yards.

Do you notice the differences now?
"Hobby Grade" Features are :
Digital proportional steering (variable steering), which means you can turn the transmitter wheel slightly and the car turns a little. Turn the transmitter wheel alot and the car turns alot. Variable speed control this means you pull back on the trigger a little the car moves a little, pull back on the trigger all the way and the car takes off! This also works for reverse gear as well.
Multiple Interchangeable Frequencies
50 yard Range on the transmiter
