For the size and price of this remote controlled car it is ridiculously quick, capable of speeds of 70KM/H! This is thanks to its lithium polymer battery and powerful 540 motor that are usually reserved for bigger more expensive models. This is the newer "B" version with bigger and faster motor.
The 70KM/H speed claim from the manufacturer has been checked and the model reached over 72KM/H! The 540 size motor is big and powerful for a model of this size as is the two cell lithium battery that gives the buggy all of its speed. To handle the high power the model is fitted with upgraded aluminium drive shafts, drive cups and central shaft. To help keep it under control at the high speeds it has front and rear differentials, hobby grade suspension and 4 wheel drive system. The RC car comes fully assembled and complete with everything you need to get outside and hit the road apart from 4 normal AA batteries for the remote.
I bought an RC car for my sons 5th bday, it arrived after a few days which I was happy with, and the car itself was very impressive and fast like it said, was that pleased with the purchase I've ordered 2 more RC cars for my nephews and ordering a petrol one myself. Highly recommended this company no complaints..
