Out of the box this thing has been great. My 4 year old has been driving it now for about 6 months. The motor has required some tightening but that has been about it. Been running 2S as I prefer to have it last. I still have to put a block in the throttle so my son doesn't have 100pcnt. :) . Only part that has broken was the right rear tire support linkage. It pulled out. not snapped. after full reverse into my planter box.
Parts are hard to come by from HK. get on their waiting list and buy it when you get your notice. Otherwise you have to figure out which main brand manufacturer they cloned and order the real one at 4 times the price.
Over all great. Don't know how it would race, but it has been an absolute pleasure to bash around.Wow is all I have to say, this was my first and absolutely not my last car from hobbyking. Now when comparing this beast to my SC10, revo, and slash, it blows them all away! not only with performance, but durability! My 9yo slammed a curb full speed several times before he broke an a arm... Oh no an a arm? Hmm Kyosho DRT, DBX, hello and thank you for easily available parts that fit!!excelente buno bonit y barato comprenlodbx 2.0 copy and can take most of the parts. quality is good for the price but parts are out of stocks for long times. I'd love to see all parts available in case I ever needed some.I've been waiting for part for months now, there are no spare part available. DO NOT purchase this car, even if it's cheap, my recommendation.Got this car the other day and I am loving it. Car is fun to drive especially on 3S.
Would have been good if the shocks were aluminum bodied shocks.
Car has good speed and has a light feel to it.
Suspension was OK out of the box. Was under dampene for bashing.. I replace the shock oil with 40 weight and it's much better.
The idea of a dust proof box is good. But if your ESC will overheat when running on 3S then why have it for 3S. Either remove the Dust proof box or sell with a higher amp ESC.
TIRES ARE OK. SOFT GOOD GRIP ON GRASS AND DIRT. Alot of plastic on this car but so far I haven't broken anything.Initial use seems like a great buggy, missing a rear wing screw on box opening and ESC fan has stopped after first run. Is quick and handles quite well. 4.5 starsExcelente size for a very good priceFirs gues was great...fast and durable on 2s. A have som good times with it.
But few thigs:
- Slow servo - you probably can live with it
- slow trust response on ESC - also not so bad in most moments
- esc is s*#!t, beeter replace it - becase of heating
- bad airflow in sandbox...that is realy bad bad idea, need some customsation
- motor cooling - better add fan on it
- bad wheels disk...its break fun, if there stuck some stone in because of small inner diameter...and this was pretty often
- chassis get realy fast stripped by dust and stones getting from front wheels
- last and worst thing -car is useless for more than 2 months because of no or lack spare parts in stock !!!!!!!
Please all of you, think twice....yes its cheap and super fun car...but if you broke some parts (aarms in my case), you can throw it to trash and buy another car :(I received my rattler and this thing is unbelievable. I put in a 3s 3000 zippy and I got over an hour of time on it. It will absolutely smoke the tires. It tries to fly when you hit it hard. Very responsive and stable. I love this thing so much, I am going to buy another soon.
