Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality, I purchased this as Xmas present for a my little boy. Upon first use he crashed, not too hard i might add and broke the plastic front axel rendering totally useless. Have taken it back and have been refused refund and blamed for breaking it. They dont see that its inferior and has in my opinion a design fault.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good remote control car Bought this for my 8 year old son and he really likes it. It is suitable for a younger child - easy to use. It is not incredibly fast, but good enough for a lot of fun to be had. The charge doesn't last more than about 30 mins and so needs to be recharged quite often. Overall a good toy at a good price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast! Great toy. 5 year old very happy and quickly mastered sensitive controls. Excellent on tarmac. Ok on grass. Needs a wide open space. Crashed on day 4 and broke wheel axle. Money refunded but jo more in stock. Sourced another elsewhere. So far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says it should do! This is a Christmas present for my 12 year old son. We never have much luck with RC cars but this one has been great fun so far! It’s has tolerated the being on the beach, doing big jumps & skids!
