The Best Way to Have “The Talk” With Your Kid

30 December 2015

Somewhere in the world, some father is on his hands 'n knees in the driveway teaching his child the ins and outs of the family rig. How to change a tire. Clean the engine bay. Check the fuses. Y’know: car talk, man.

But don’t you think it’d be better if the young’n had a clunker of his own to work on?

Enter Hong Kong’s Capo Racing and their flawless 1:8 scale model Jeep Wrangler. Yes, it’s a toy. Yes, your kid will absolutely love it. And yes, it’s as real as a scale rig will ever get.

Teaching ‘em the 101s of car maintenance couldn’t be easier, what with completely replaceable body parts, a three-speed drivetrain that can switch from 2WD to 4WD and a full body metal chassis. Under the hood: a meticulously recreated and detailed engine compartment.

Them’s the big details, but the little details are just as faithful: reclining seats and monster tires with doors — including the tailgate — that legit open and shut, just like an honest automobile should.

Best part? It’ll cost ya only $2,300. Head on over to Capo Racing for all the details, but check the pics below first.
