If you want a scale truck - solid rear axle - long trailing arms - realistic action etc, then you should grab this truck!
This thing REALLY utilizes the locked rear axle to maintain traction during fast acceleration.
If you just want a fun larger scale short course style truck to rip around with and ramp etc then I’d point you towards the Mojave. But for scale realism and tons of power out of the box, this is a fantastic truck!
The directions or instructions that you get with this model RC is its biggest Problem, they are not very thorough or very detailed and that’s why I believe this is for someone with experience in the Rc Hobby. I had to call the manufacture because I was unable to turn off the truck with the speed controller and I was unable to program the truck for my grandson. The current model of this truck the batteries have to be unplugged to get the electronic speed controller to turn off that is because there is a drain on the batteries because of the previous firmware or programming so they decided to just have Us unplug the battery that is Not Ok for an $800.00 Rc vehicle. They send a reminder in the battery storage area stating that you should puncture the tires so that dirt that gets trapped in the tire can be thrown off during normal operation, at the very least each update or change to any of the operating features for this vehicle they should have paperwork that would explain what to expect when purchasing this vehicle for proper operation.
Last but not least I have decades of experience starting from Estes rockets and hand built Rc planes to our current RTR variety of Rc vehicles. This by far is the most accurate most detailed RTR RC truck that you can buy on the market. There is no other truck that you can buy that shows the kind of detail and or that has the ability to upgrade that this vehicle has, if only I had something like this growing up! This by far with a few exceptions is probably the best way to introduce a young man or young lady into Rc modeling. The only thing better would be to build this as a kit so that the builder would understand how everything functions and operates in My Humble Opinion.
