This is 1st fancy RC car for my son, it took couple of hours to use to it and control it. couple of things, i would say good about it. 2 batteries which help you for long play time, 2.4 GHZ remot control which has good range, personally i like the motor of the this monster which is looks like powerfull for this size of car.
monster truck runs very smooth, easy to use, my sun run it on the track and he is more than happy.
i would say it is good starter truck.
