Been driving mine for ~3 weeks and after getting over the initial learning curve I absolutely love this thing. I takes a while to get use to and figure out the best way to make these corner and once you do these are a blast! 3 of the local racers here including myself have been running these as fast as the packs can charge. They hold up really well, we’ve hit curbs, cars, each other and they keep on going. Out of the box you can wheelie on demand and power slide them into corners just like the true scale large bikes. These bike are awesome and draw all kinds of attention. We are currently working through various aluminum upgrades available online as well as the option front brakes. These parts are not necessary for racing we are just racers trying to go as fast as possible. Amain please pick up these aftermarket parts!!! I recommend these to anyone looking for something a little different than what everyone else has. These do come with a pretty steep learning curve but once you get it figured out they are so much fun.

The bike is definitely fun and different. Not too challenging where you don't enjoy it, but hard enough to keep you entertained. The unit is far from rtr though, and it absolutely infuriated me. No loctite anywhere....before I went though the first small 2s pack to break it in, it had already had a pinion come loose, axle nut, and frame bolt. I mean, literally less than 5 minutes, and it had parts falling off it. I called duratrax to express my concern, and I basically got the "not our problem". It's a shame, because I like the bike a lot, and would buy another so I can goof around with someone, but I have a bad taste in my mouth. Fun factor is high, qc and parts support is abysmal! Don't believe me? Try to find any parts for this thing....it will be an adventure....
