Let me first say - what a toy. On a solid timber floor its a weapon, and great fun. The tyres are solid rubber, and the torque is crazy. I've driven it on both Solid Timber and Carpet - and yes it drifts on both.
And uncharacteristically - the manual is fantastic. Includes exploded diagrams, every part detailed, which gives beginners a great feeling of ability to pull this apart, replace a sprocket (which the kit includes spares for) and put it back together without any trouble. Great purchase
- strongly recommend.
Serious players - check out the 9XX series - you can buy metal replacement components for those.

that you gotta have a boring or useless toy. This little thing zips around, drifting around anything in it's class. Buy extra tyres and batteries; one is NEVER enough...

Received this car from Banggood after only about 10 days which is pretty good for transit from China to the US. Opening the box I noticed that it seemed to be hastily packaged since it was in a box labeled "Desert Buggy" and it's clearly a drift car. Not letting that discourage me too much I pulled it out of the box and charged up the battery.
This little guy tears on the right surface. On hardwood there is absolutely zero traction, and on high pile carpet it bottoms out pretty badly. On a
very tight low pile carpet or smooth concrete however, this little guy drifts far better than expected. There is a bit of a learning curve since it is light and likes to spin out more than my 1/10 cars, but it's really a hoot to drive.
Pros... FUN! Seems to be well put together, comes with a more or less full sized transmitter. More zip that anticipated. It looks like it could be pretty easily modified.
Cons... setup is lacking. No lube in the differential, pinion is crammed into the spur among other issues. Easy fix though. This is closer to a 1:18 than a 1:24, with no replacement body selection I have been able to find. Comes with non-standard (US) charger, but banggood did include an adapter. Battery will be difficult to find local replacements for without modification to the car.
All in all completely worth the money in my opinion.
