The ready to run Turnigy 1/18th 4WD Mini Stadium Truck is great fun and blisteringly fast considering its diminutive size. The Mini Stadium Truck is supplied with an 18A ESC and a 2030 size brushless motor which provides plenty of power for the 4WD drive system. This little 1/18th scale truck is small enough to thrash around indoors however it’s also tough enough to handle your favorite outdoor track or bashing spot.
The Mini Stadium Truck is a true RTR and is supplied with a unique and extremely lightweight
2.4ghz pistol grip transmitter and receiver so all you will need is a 7.4v 2S 1000-1500mAH Lipo and 4 x AAA batteries and your ready for action.
• Brushless power system pre-installed
• High torque micro steering servo pre-installed
• Permanent 4WD system with twin differential

• Suitable for indoor and outdoor bashing

Great little RC car, good speed, great fun.
Only lasted a few good runs and now the rear transmission is busted, with the required spare part (rear transmission) seemingly perpetual on backorder .
Should have lasted longer before breaking down, and would expect the spare part to be available.Hi,
bought this fun little car and used it twice outdoor.
Both twin differentials (front and rear) are now down : no more power is transmitter to the wheels. I checked the hardware, the system is clever but made of small plastic parts, way to fragile.
In the exploded view, the differential is the only part unreferenced !!!
Don't buy it or stay indoor.
Truck is great.... spares are not... You will break bits and lose bits.
Some ...not many, are easy to replace, others nearly imposible.
I love the truck but would not buy another because of this.https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=42718Bought this mini for my kids to learn the hobby.
Out of the box it aint bad. Not super tight, very basic suspension.
Good on pavement. Freaking quick on carpet.
Not good on grass. I run 2S LiPo and run for 10-15 minutes is not more. Great power! Don't go with 3S batteries! I did it once and stripped the rear differential gear. Too much power. But with 2S LiPo perfect! Bought a second truck to make race :)
And now i'm ordering spare parts! RTR little 1/18 that's worth it! My kids approved and daddy too lol.Out of the box this car was useless. They shouldn't say it's RTR as it's so poorly put together you'll need to repair, reassemble it in the first few minutes. It's actually quite fun once you sort it out though, but it's far too fragile for the speed it does. My daughter broke it the first time she used it as there is no protection for the front wheels.
If you want it for kids, you can swap around the speed and steering controls (requires some soldering skill to do this on the included controller) and then you can limit the throttle control. However, I wouldn't recommend this. Instead spend a few more dollars and buy a latrax or traxxas model that can actually take a bit of punishment.
Also, hobbyking did not support this at all. I tried to get a return authority after the first run and it's been sitting there for 6 weeks awaiting initial evaluation. Ended up modifying it to make it work for me.This truck is sooo much fun works very well..
Its good on grass,gravel,concrete it goes very fast right out of the box.
I would say this is recommended for beginner to medium skilled RC driver.Great little truck. Very well made, very fast, goes over almost any terrain and is heaps of fun. A serious little machine!???? ?????? ?????????? ??? ??? ? ?????????
