My son bought this with his Xmas money and couldn't be happier. Really easy to set up and with a bit of coaching (he's 11) he was away. We bought a fast charger and two extra batteries which was lucky as the battery and charger included aren't up to much. Overall it's a quick, all terrain car which is great for the beginner and good value for money.

I got it out the box and used it straight away and i was really impressed with it and but how ever after about two weeks of really hard use it did snap in half and the left front shock doesn't work properly anymore. The battery the comes with it is good but it doesn't last a awfully long time but over all it s a good first car but you get what you pay for

This is my first RC car and I am supper happy with it, only prob is the batt does not last long so get a few bigger batts like I did. 5 stars from me

Truly brilliant service - arrived in 24 hours with very reputable carrier. Service is excellent with friendly and helpful staff. Packaging was a bit suspect with old torn cardboard in box. One small part missing but shop sorted this straight away. I will be buying more from them as loads of spares for this model. Highly recommended shop. Very well build buggy - solid construction.

Incredible, especially considering its "toy" priced. Things really moved on since my Wild Willy's Jeep back in 80's - what really amazes is the value & ease of use. Superb present for my boys (7 & 5) but glad I tested before wrapping for Xmas - they are much too fast to learn with, for a young child. Solution is easy & cheap; bought 55t crawler motor (10), so they can learn basics of driving at "walking speeds" & even learn driving indoors, plus batts last 2x & won't smash them first time out!

This is an entry level car which should be good for beginners, but beginners need more info including, in this case, the fact that the battery lasts for around 3 minutes and it takes hours to re-charge. I new the charge would take a long time but 3 minutes of use? This car is next to useless unless you upgrade the batteries. The response to my query was "The battery supplied isn't the highest of capacity and normally only last in the region of 5 mins". My son looks forward to those xtra 2mins

Disappointed to find the protective covering on the shell had been removed and some of the decals had been applied. A far as I was aware I wasn't buying a display model (or is this how they are supplied by the distributor?) Can't comment on the driving/handling characteristics as it was bought solely as a spare parts donor for the Vantage Pro roller I've just bought.

Admin: Hello, Yes we can confirm some stickers are already applied in the factory and this was not an ex display model. Regards,

Brilliant car for the money, pretty quick too. Had a faulty transmitter so i informed modelsport and the day after i had a new one at my door. I cannot fault modelsport for their top notch customer support. Thanks

Firstly, WOW to the service received from Modelsport - only ordered standard delivery but even so was here the second day after ordering (via DPD, who tell the hour slot within which they will deliver - they are excellent). Car is a beautiful thing to behold and well made. Very easy to put together and get going out of the box. It is fast, not amazingly fast, but fast enough and has no probs with small jumps / climbing small kerbs etc.. Only disappointment is range from transmitter.
