For the price point, this is one of the better RTR vehicles you can buy. The truck has loads of power on 2S and is an absolute rocketship on 3S. In fact, if you're newer to the hobby, you should probably avoid 3S on this truck altogether until your driving skills improve.
It isn't bulletproof straight out of the box, but it's a durable platform with a lot of potential for upgrades. At $250, you can afford to make upgrades to this truck without breaking the bank. After I discovered its weak points through bashing, I was able to fix them through upgrades, and now the truck is my go-to bashing vehicle.
If you're willing to put a little bit of time and money into it, this truck can be an extremely capable and fun basher, for much less money than what other RTRs cost.
