love the look! it's pretty fast, the range is great. It doesn't have crazy clearance and its not a rock crawler but it does fine with grass, road, dirt. I was reading the reviews prior to purchasing and was not sure if this had the oil fill shocks and it does have it! My son is too young to play with it but he does like to chase after it and I really enjoy playing this so its a win-win situation. If you are on the fence about buying this one, do it! get this over the cheaper ones if its for yourself but if it's for the little one, I would go for a much cheaper one.
I've had this car for a week so I can't speak to the long term durability but so far this thing has held up to the abuse of my kids playing with it. We've built ramps to jump and have drift challenges. I've owned several RC cars in the past and this one is the best. Keep in mind this isn't a $1k car but at this price point it has exceeded my expectations. The shocks are very absorbent allowing the car to handle different terrain. As with any RC car, I expect over time I will have to replace parts like an axle but again, that's expected. The battery has been good so far - about 20 minutes on each pair of batteries and that's with the peddle to the metal most of the time. Speed is good and again in line with what I expected.
