We're big fans of R/C cars here at Autoblog, but we obviously love actually driving vehicles, as well. 3Z Scale has what might be the marriage of our two passions with its Bulldog R/C Rider. The Bulldog is a 1/3 scale remote control vehicle that sports a stadium truck body, 110cc four-stroke engine, disc brakes, automatic transmission, independent suspension and aluminum wheels. You can pilot the big R/C all day long behind a 2.4 GHz radio transmitter, but when that gets old, the Bulldog converts into a rideable ATV of sorts. Unfortunately, as the video after the jump demonstrates, controlling the vehicle by remote is not possible when there's a rider on the back of the Bulldog. In that mode, the rider controls the vehicles with handlebars. Nevertheless, imagining the fun we could have with an R/C car that's 4' 2" long and weighs nearly 200 pounds makes the mind reel. And when we're done we can just ride the damn thing home! Follow the jump to watch the video and see the Bulldog operating in both modes.

      That is... what's the word I'm looking for...

      Retarded.

      Completely retarded.

      110 cc... not 1100 cc.

      I'd get one if it was 1100 cc for sure.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I was gonna say...
        • 6 Years Ago
        Make one out of a Honda CBR engine and make it look like a F1 car. That would be too cool.
        • 6 Years Ago
        wouldnt 1100 cc have made it the higheset-displacement quad on the market?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Would Hamilton's F1 car not be the first rideable RC?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I like it. It's a giant RC car (who doesn't like those).. and a vehicle to drive around the campsite or wherever.

      Sure, you could get a 1/3 scale RC car... AND a separate mini bike or similar vehicle... but this is still pretty cool.

      Only in America!

      Why would a car need to be RC if you can ride on it and control it directly?
        • 6 Years Ago
        It's an RC so you Don't have to be on it to drive it around.
        • 6 Years Ago
        In case you're too lazy to walk over to it.

      I think a powerwheel Barbie ferrari would take it easily.

        • 6 Years Ago
        my little cousin had a pink Barbie Diablo that i wanted to steal soooo bad, i would have gotten a paint job of course : lambo yellow with purple wheels (it was early 90's)

      if only I was a kid again, I would of loved to ride these then instead of those plastic electric Tonka's lol...
        • 6 Years Ago
        well, I'm guessing then that "if I was a kid again" is a grammar error either as you dont seem to have gotten past that point in development.

        but I see now. 4 letters are twice as hard to type as 2. and everyone should text no matter the environment.

        Since I see so many folks using 'of' instead of 'have' in text lately as well as using the wrong homonyms, I do assume its a phonics thing and a pretty sad state that it is so widely accepted.

        its a sad state that mediocrity is so accepted by today's yutes. ah well, the ramblings of a 30-something OF.

        TAFN

        OBTW: NRN, LTS
        • 6 Years Ago
        would have loved, HAVE, not of

        stupid phonics
        • 6 Years Ago
        Just when I thought people couldn't get any more anal you prove me wrong....correcting a small grammar error that didn't even take 3 seconds of thought to type plus being irrelevant to the subject at hand, and on Autoblog of all places????hahahahhahahhahaha

        I take it u dont lik textng lol u must spend hours correcting them rofl

      Dumb!
      • 6 Years Ago
      It just looks kinda stupid. It looks too big and bulky to be all that much fun as an RC car, and looks ridiculously small and tiny when converted for a rider.
