The XLF F16 is a Ready To Run (RTR) 1:14 scale 4WD off road Radio-controlled racing buggy. It notably includes a very large 550 sized brushless motor and a number of 'upgrade' metal components including suspension arms and knuckles. The brushed version as reviewed here retails for around $100 and has options with one or 2 batteries.
The F16 is the second RC car platform that XLF have released in recent times with the first being the 1/10 scale X03, X04, X05 which share the same underpinnings. The F16 as reviewed here is my first XLF product and I must admit it has more than a passing resemblance to the WL Toys 144001 both in scale, function and design.
In this article I'll look at the XLF F16 as a standalone review and then the inevitable comparison to the WL Toys 144001.
