    How fast will it go on a lawn?

    Sure they go 30mph on pavement but how fast are they on the average lawn or grass? 15mph?

    That depends on how high the grass is. Biggest issue with grass isn't so much that it will run slower (which it will to one degree or another) but that it will heat things up more because the motor has to work harder. Cars this small aren't really meant to be run in grass anyway but that said, it should do ok if the grass is cut pretty short.

    How tall of grass we talking about. You don't want to push it to hard on high grass as you might burn it out.

    It will do 5mph

    You think the mini Revo will be able to pretty much keep pace with this?

    I doubt it.......... it's gonna be quick in a straight line, but more than likely flipping over more than you'd like.... I'm sure just by looking at the size of the tires vs. the 1/16th Slash, that the Revo would do better on grass, but it's not gonna blast thru it like a 1/8 buggy. Those dogs would be chomping on it about 30 seconds into the video.......
