I’ve bought three so far. Four if you count one that was completely DOA. My son broke a drive shaft, suspension bar and decorative pieces in the first month with regular use, and all three have shipped with horrible 700mAh batteries that need to be replaced out of the box. Broken pieces can sometimes be fixed with a plastic welder, but don’t count on it. These do work, but don’t expected them to last if they will be driven hard or dropped more than a few feet.
Battery lasts about 2 minutes. Vehicle runs not fast, but somewhat quick, then slows down to a crawl, then stops after a few minutes. Left to charge for six hours and still the same terrible battery life.
This is a total piece of garbage. Don’t waste your money. This is not up to the usual high quality of good available on this site. Makes me start questioning their other stuff. Whoever approved this for sale should get a demotion because it’s hurting the company’s reputation.
Bought this as a gift when Monoprice was running a deal. The car runs for about a minute or two at regular speed and then slows WAY down (and won't even move unless on a flat/smooth surface). If you turn off the car AND the remote then turn them both on it runs at full speed again for a couple minutes. Tried recharging the battery, adjusting the remote, etc. Unfortunately I cannot file an RMA because it is beyond the 14 DAY return :(
piece of junk. The design was terrible as you had to unscrew the battery compartment every time you wanted to charge the battery. It didn’t even matter because the battery only charged once and then wouldn’t work again. I wasn’t expecting much for the price but i figured it would work more than once.
