Fun littel car but the motor gets very hot so I would recommend a heatsink. the shocks are very brittle and need the alu ones BAD!! parts also have alot of flexibility in them so it jump steers a LOT!!

What a truck! I love it, so much fun and alot faster then I thought! Battery lasts a very long time too I didn't expect that out of 1100mah but I suppose it is a small truck! So underestimated! Been jumping it in the garden dougnuting in the living room it's solid still in one piece! Unlike my other models It works everytime I switch it on and runs perfect I love the styling and the controller! Everyone needs one of these trucks! So fun for when it's raining outside, unleash the mini recon! MS!

Very nice little model. Tough enough for bashing in the garden. I like it very much

This is a quick little car, but I have only used it round the house and already, I have had to rebuild 3 of the shocks and tighten the differentials front and rear. only this morning I managed to pop the steering servo off the arm. This may have been to my driving but when I had my Blackfoot all those years ago I never had to rebuild or maintain it as much as this thing, it requires a lot of maintenance to keep it running at its best! But it is an entry level car. 3 stars for this from me

Great little truck to get started in R/C, BUT the front and rear differentials realy let the whole package down, Both of mine started slipping within a week (Running it around my garden), HPI recomend tightning them but that only solved the problem for a couple of hours and the parts are very expensive. On the plus side, The rest of the truck seems nearly indestructble and its super fast for such a small car. I really love it, But it'll sit on a shelf broken unless HPI bring out better diff's

This is a great little car! Ideal for messing around in the garden but no good indoors as its to big. Iv had mine for a few weeks now and iv only broken a plastic pinion gear. All in all I would recomend this to anyone

Got one delivered today and just had a blast around the garden and it is so much fun and really quick for the size.

Exellent little truck. got it for my son to get into rc cars and he loves it, takes jumps well and is very quick for its size. Only downside so far is one of the shocks fell apart while on tarmack, steering went abit haywire. anyway a bit of superglue and fresh oil sorted that out and it hasn't spoilt the fun my son is having.
