looked good,1 roll over, broken rear suspension arm,lasted 2 minutes
can you buy spares? or is it a throw away?
Ordered two of these so my wife and I could run them together. My wife had hers set up first and after a few minutes of getting it up and running and the trims all set, the motor burned up. I ordered 2 new motors to replace both motors in either car. I figured I may as well replace mine before setting mine up. Aside from that, these rally cars are great and fun to drive.I own both this and the Extreme Edition. I purchased this thinking I'd put some leftover parts from upgrading the Extreme Edition on this car, and use it to bash around and not worry about trashing the nice body and wheels I installed on my Extreme Edition.
Turns out I should have looked at the pictures, because this car is based a completely different chassis, it uses the same chassis as the 1/18 stadium truck, which has a smaller motor, much smaller drivetrain, and much flimsier chassis and suspension.
The car still works well, though my motor broke after 30 minutes of light use (magnet detached from the shaft, waiting on RMA process to hopefully send a new motor). I also can't get the gear mesh close enough, it seems this varies from car to car after reading the reviews. Everything else seems like it will hold up to light use ok.
Overall, if you are looking for the cheapest car HK sells, then get the 1/18 stadium truck, several dollars cheaper and it's the same exact chassis. If you are looking for a rally car, then get the Extreme Edition, currently it is only $12 more than this car, and is a far better car in every aspect.Best rally and drift carThe day I got the car it was broken took 1 hole year to get them to do something still waiting now for the gear box to get hear hope my nitro one works to be fair buy some other car then this A VOIDis a weak car but nice for kids to initialiseWhile switching between driving modesNormal, Sport, and Ecothe corresponding engine and suspension settings are reflected in the instrument panel. In Sport mode, for example, the IP shows a lap timer, torque distribution, and even a G-force indicator. seems slightly ill-fitted for a car that begs all of your attention. Just kidding The Turnigy 1/16th Mini Rally Car keeps breaking from the esc to the spur gear.I'm writing this to counter my earlier review. Update: it looks like the motor bearings are shot. After replacing the rear differential, the car still exhibited the same behavior: a high pitched squealing noise, and very low power. The good news is that I contacted RobC at the HobbyKing NYC office, and he's going to fix me up. I have nothing but good things to say about RobC. He's a great guy, and he's always there to help when things go awry. He's the shining jewel in HK's tarnished customer support crown. If not for his help, I would probably buy a lot less from HK. Instead, I'm buying even more stuff from them!After driving around for a bit on some asphalt (less than a full battery charges worth), I thought this was a fairly decent car. However, after running on some grass today, the car simply stopped moving. The motor was very hot, running on the recommended 2S 1700 mAh battery, so I figured maybe it was a temperature issue, so I let her cool down for 10 minutes or so. No luck. It appears that both differentials have stripped gears. I won't know until I tear them down, but that's what it appears to be. It's also a major PITA to replace those diffs, and requires almost a complete disassembly of the chassis to do so. The replacement diffs are supposed to have metal gears, but I'm hesitant to pour any more money into this car. I suppose I will order the replacement diffs, but from some of the comments on those replacements, I don't hold out much hope for a positive result.Amazing little car , very fast , has a slight heat issue in hot countries ( greece). When you get it get some spur gears as well since they're exposed and very easy to strip but dirt cheap to replace , and some suspension arms upper and lower since I did broke mine going full speed on 3s and hitting a real car tire .(also very cheap to replace). I have placed a 6 mm 6v fan on top of the esc to cool both the esc and motor ,but I would like a proper cooling solution from HK .The electronics get hot with both 2 and 3s - I will try to do a mod to isolate them and the spur gear from dust and bring fresh air from over the roof of the car. If you're not much into drifting loosen up a bit the slipper clutch , its insane fast when it has enough grip and handles great if you manage to tame the wheel spin .
