Toy State Test DriverRadio Controlled vehicles are always a big hit here at Rock Father HQ, and one of our favorites arrived here earlier this year in the form of a Road Rippers "Motor Muscle" 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. Just in-time for Christmas gift-giving, we've got a companion in our collection with the arrival of the Road Rippers Mobile Command Dodge Challenger from Toy State. Styled after the 2013 Challenger, this thing is a fine-looking ride, and it is fast! If there wasn't six inches of snow on the ground and some sub-zero wind chills, we'd be rockin' this thing outside for a proper road test. While it's cold outside, we've still been burning a little rubber on the laminate, and once you see this thing, I think you'll agree that it's a must-have gift this season...

Toy State Dodge Challnger

With scale speeds of up to 130mph, it's been hard to contain the power of the Challenger inside our home with limited space to set it free. It's so fast that it drifts like something out of the FAST AND FURIOUS movies as it zips around our kitchen. The controls are simple, and while it's recommended for ages 7+, younger kids should have no problems with it under grownup supervision. 

Rock Father-Approved!In addition to the Dodge Challenger, Toy State has produced a Dodge Viper and a Ford Mustang 5.0 as additional vehicles in their Mobile Command series. These are Rock Father-approved, and should be available in the toy department of your local Walmart, Toys "R" Us, Target, and Kmart Stores.
