First of all let me say that this is not a toy. Its very fast and requires a good amount of skill to controll. I do not recommend this as someones first Nitro R/C car. I actually got mine from a friend, it was his first and he kept crashing into things and couldn't keep it running so he gave it to me.

The first time I took it out I was amazed at the power. It would easily do wheelies with a short blip of the throttle. I found that the JR XR2i radio that came equipped with it was a great addition. It has the option for two user profiles. I set one profile to allow the throttle to open all the way unleashing the beast that this R/C truly is. The other profile I set to limit the throttle to 40%. That kept the wheels on the ground without limiting the top speed. I found myself always using this setting as the wheelies bot a bit annoying after a while.

Since I have had it I have only broken two parts... One was a front A-arm which was my fault when I hit a stack of bricks. I hit it pretty hard and am suprised thats the only part that broke. The other part is the rear differential. Sadly this is a weak spot on this car and as far as I know there isnt much alternative to it. I would have gave this car a higher rating if it were not for that one part. It has broken three times now. The first was a stripped gear, the second and third time one little washer broke and the differential just unscrewed itself and fell apart. Dont worry though, if adjusted correctly and maintained properly it will last a long time. Its definately not something that should stop you from buying this product.

My conclusion is if your looking for something that handles well, is fast, and relatively tough you should look into getting the Team Losi XXX-NT just make sure you keep up maintenance on that rear differential.
