I am a complete "noob" to RC cars and I tried to do a lot of research on YouTube to find an appropriate beginner RC car. I am not disappointed with buying this car. Again, I am a noob, but the controls were very responsive, the speed trim is very useful for me getting used to the steering, good fun using the car and no problems encountered so far. I think I have made a good purchase to start out in RC cars. Thank you!
