Agree that this is a great RC car for the money. My kid has gotten pretty good at driving it but it is easily broken. Hit a curb and had to glue front bumper back on. Ran front right tire into a tree (not whole front of car) and it broke the steering linkage...repaired that with a $7 part from the hobby store. Then took it out for a run and the 4WD just stopped working...it is now a RWD car. Looks like the front diff shredded itself. Then the shaft to the front wheels stopped turning so that connector must have shredded itself as well now. No chance of repair without exceeding price of the car. Car is still running as a 2WD and my kid is still driving the heck out of it. The way the rear diff is sounding I should probably start looking into a replacement. But, for the price this is still a great RC. If I paid more I would be pissed but for under $150 I am OK with it.

Great car for money. 1st one I had got pretty trashed. My six year old ran it into a curb & broke front bumper. Then pinned it under a mini van at top speed and broke plastic that secured the shell on the front. After about the 5th charge the battery connector melted into the one on the car. Took it in and showed it to them and they exchanged the entire car. Much more careful with it now and stoked! Great beginner car. My six year old loves it and is getting really good at driving.
