    if you like speed then its worth every dollar getting one. to some ppl....it gets boring as all you do is go up and down but, to me i find it very challenging to keep it in one piece and be able to run it again the next day lol. its nice knowing that i own one of the most fastest out of the box supercar.

    I really like the look..price seems sorta steep but I like the technology it has. I don't need to go 150mph.. It looks easy to work on. I'm gonna wait till I get some $$$ saved then ill get it.

    Find a used one in good shape. When you get it, leave it on the low speed gear as long as you can 75+ mph wrecks are not fun at all! It is an awesome car if you have a long wide road.

    bringit knows what he is talking about, in this hobby speed costs dearly. I tried to go fast with a rustler for a long time, and ended up wasting a lot of money and trashing a lot of parts. In the end I topped out at 62 mph and I left it at that, never again. I am building an onroad rally now, but not to set speed records just to drive around with. A little speed is nice but when a wreck costs you more than groceries, it's not as fun anymore!

    Good luck with your car hope you enjoy it!

    its a sick car and def worth it for 800 , but if you arnt tryin for 100 mph then id get ofna gt8 car. i got of replacing arms and bearings and turnbuckle ends , every crash would tweak the plastic ends on the turnbuckles and produce so much play

    Be patient. Everyone told me that I would have to spend $800 or more to get a great deal...but guess what? I just spent $700 (shipped) and look at the deal I got. The seller was super nice - I got the exact bundle I was looking for - and I passed up on others that just didnt make the deal happen. Im just waiting for it to arrive (Im hoping one day next week):



    I hope you get one - Ill post pictures and video... I plan to take it slow at first (famous last words)...

    I think it is a great a RC with a a lot of thought put into it. Even if you don't max it out speedwise, it looks good on the fireplace mantel. I have 75km of hi speed travel on mine and the only problems so far have been a lost shaftpin and 1 rear wheel bearing siezure. Considering the speed and distance it has went, I think that's pretty good.

    Make sure you run it in the middle of a wide road or like a parking lot... crashing into somebodys car parked on the side of the road isn't fun... Happened to me, and mine was really messed up lol
