Car is a great gift for a teenager that keeps them outside instead of inside. We had a major issue connecting car to remote. I contact customer service and was told it’s my problem went to two different local stores and was treated horribly!!! I left the store crying! I spent several hundreds of dollars on a toy that I could not get assistance for. Thank goodness a man and his daughter was shopping in the store they overheard how the store rep and manager treated me and my son. He offered to help us. Explaining that the experience RC guys hate newbies. To not take it personally. He contact Traxxas customer service and figured out what was wrong with my sons car. He was able to fix it.
The car itself is a fun project. Great for a newbie. Easy to handle and easy to upgrade as the driver improves in his skill. Such as going brushless. The con of the car... the battery that comes with this kit. Is a 7cell but only 3000 hrtz. It will only give you 5/10 minutes play time! If you don’t have a fast charger. (Another $200 expense) the charger that comes with the kit is a car charger and can take two to three hours to charge) we purchased another battery pack. A bigger pack.
Also if you decide to buy an additional battery make sure it’s the hump battery pack!!! A flat pack does not fit. Also, don’t buy an off brand the connection will not fit and you will need to buy an adapter. Also, there is NO returning items!!! Customer service for HobbyTown is horrible and will refuse to assist you.
