There are so many brands of these cars that all seem about the same but this one is somehow more durable, faster and slightly more durable than the other 3 I’ve bought in order to retain 2 of them. If they’re lemons, they break almost immediately so it’s not a huge deal.
The cars are ridiculously fun to drive but they have a unique steering concept. The controller is just two sticks that go up and back. One stick controls the right two wheels and a the other the left two. Going straight means pushing both sticks up to move both sides wheels in the same direction. Reverse is the opposite, both sticks down. BUT since the car will flip like crazy and bounce all over the place, it often lands in a position where FWD AND REVERSE ARE THE OPPOSITE. If you only push one stick, it’ll spin in small arc. One stick down and the other up, a super tight spin in one spot.
It takes some getting used to but once you do, the cars are basically un-trappable. You can drive them into bushes and if you keep trying different wheel combos, it’ll work itself free.
I have a 3 year old and a 5 year old. 3 year old gets very excited at them, then frustrated that he can’t drive it. 5 year old took several tries but she has it down and it’s like mad Max, indoor and outdoor.
Batteries last about 30 mins and I dunno where you get a recharge AA with their plug (other than to buy cars that immediately break and, well, “misplace” them when returning. It’s more or less continuous if you have one on the charger at all times.
Do note, they come with a tiny screwdriver that is a must, or you can’t change controller or car battery. Put it somewhere safe.
Bought this for my 3-yr-old grandson, but it's a little above his skill level so - guess what? I get to play with it! hehehe Seriously, this thing is fun - controls takes some getting used to but even that's fun. Once he's a little older I'll teach it to him and I have no doubt it'll still be around and working great.
This was bought as a Christmas gift and it broke in 6 days!! It was played with for maybe 5 of those 6 days for the duration of the battery - which is about 5min of continued play. One of the motors broke and as such only two of the four wheels works. What a waste of money and so sad that the gift can no longer be enjoyed.
Don’t waste your money on this. It’s not much fun for the kids as it’s impossible to control. It’s not your standard remote control car. The controller is very janky and it’s frustrating for the kids. They get annoyed after about a minute and then they’re done. Spend the money on a better one.
This is kinda the perfect thing to have on hand for those birthday parties you find out your kid has to go to with a one day notice. Every kid, boy or girl loves a stunt car. I bought each of my kids one and they laugh and laugh until the batteries run out. Luckily there is an extra battery!
Didn't work the minute it came out of the box. There were no directions, we had to take the remote apart to rewire it, these tires don't fit right.....total crap. Should have know and won't make the mistake again.
My 6 year old grandson had it broken within about a week. Too late to get an exchange, so stuck with a non operational piece of junk. We bought another similar model from a different company, and it is still functioning great.
Purchased this as a Christmas present for my son. However, when I unboxed the toy, the right joystick on the controller was broken. I was able to glue and push the knob back on the stick so that it’s usable but I am unsure of how long this quick fix will last. I feel that the way the item was packaged in the box from the factory was the cause of the damage, not the seller.
