I guess I got lucky to get two different colors and frequencies last time.
I gave a couple of these to my kids for Christmas and they like them ok. The steering is either difficult or impossible to zero in exactly (they always drift left or right a little and sometimes it varies from run to run) but they go way faster than you might expect for cheap RC cars and don’t look half bad. The remote controls feel like cheap plastic garbage and the antenna never feels quite right when you screw them in, but you’re paying cheap plastic garbage prices for them so you can’t complain too much.
@bdb In case it was not clear, everything I say about batteries and/or refrigerators is entirely tongue in cheek. With that in mind, please understand that anyone who suggests that batteries may not in fact need to be refrigerated must be banned.
If this comment or the reason behind it is at all confusing to you, please consider yourself lucky and move on to a more enjoyable and meaningful topic.
I have to leave it at this, as the batteries in my refrigerator need to be rotated for maximum freshness.
screw that toy crap…get some real RC cars or trucks and get involved in a real hobby…Build!..Race!..FUN!..been doing it for 30 years…on 2 continents…These are just some of my honeys that took me to England to race in a world finals in 2004…HPI Racing Nitro Stock, HPI Super Nitro and an HPI R40 Pro Hara Touring car…
@fastharry I had a super nitro. Crazy fast cars. The purple anodizing on the frame was pretty slick. Replaced the stock transmission with a nice multi-gear, and ran it until the wheels fell off… Literally.
I was touching up the paint on one of my bodies when a friend came over and asked to see it run. I decided to run it without the body on, and the battery pack came dislodged and flew out of the car around a turn at full speed. All I could do was watch in horror as it shot across the lot and ran into a block wall… cracking the frame, destroying the front end, and sending a tire [who knows where]. Never found it.
Too expensive to fix, so I sold it for parts (the motor was still worth $$$), and never got back into it.
@fastharry Screw that toy crap… Get some real cars and race them. Buy two real Lambos, one for the nephews when they come to the house. Just be sure get two Lamborghinis with different frequencies/channels so you can race them in your cul-de-sac. SON! Was that ever an expensive mistake! I felt so silly explaining my error at the Lamborghini dealership. They acted like I was the crazy one!
@medz cool stuff…I was really really into it with a 300 car collection…still have all my nitro cars i raced, Tamiya collectible RC cars, and what is probably the only last example of a 2002 OFNA Limited Edition Twin Titan new in box…
Can’t pick the color? No thanks. I don’t need one, but for this price it would have been cool to get my buddy a Denali to match his truck. Not nearly as cool: “Yeah, um, I know it’s a different color and all, but it’s still a Denali!”
I ordered the Corvette and the Porche but received two Porche. I don’t know how to check if they are the same frequency. Trial and error will tell me when I put batteries in them with the grandkids. I ordered two different ones so that they can race each other. I received two different colors at least. Great price and I’m not sending them back.
