    It's a very nice and inexpensive RC, an altered (mostly incompatible) copy of the LC Racing EMB-1/Tacon Soar. Great fun for the price. However, there are some issues with factory build quality and the design itself: shock absorbers are overfilled with oil and need to be drained a bit (easy fix); CA glue is used as threadlock, making removal of the pinion gear and motor from the mount unnecessarily difficult (or even impossible without significant heat on the screws or drilling); camber and toe are all over the place and need to be adjusted (easy fix); the stock gear ratio is very tall, the measured top speed is very good at 48KPH (30MPH) but the motor overheats quickly; the ESC is too weak to deal with that big 550 size motor and overheats even faster; the ESC can't be easily upgraded because it is actually a 3-in-1 ESC, receiver and servo controller so a new 3-wire servo, receiver and transmitter are required to do so; but the biggest issue of all are the differentials, they're made from a very weak alloy and their gears don't mesh properly with each other, resulting in diff replacements being required in less than an hour of driving. Upgraded diffs and gears can be ordered, but that's another 30$ more added to the pricetag. Upgraded electronics to fix overheating would cost even more, upgrade that and you end up better off just buying the LC Racing/Tacon. In spite of its flaws, the 144001 is a good RC buggy for the price. There's a lot of fun to be had, just keep in mind the above when choosing this buggy.

    This is my second 144001. The first one is for me and the second one is for the kids. This thing is really fast. It states that this is not a toy on the box, it is true! The extra capacity battery of 2600 mah is very nice as you can use the car for almost 15 minutes when fully charged. I have also ordered a 3500mah battery. This thing goes 52km a hour. You can make it much faster bu easily upgrading it with a 3s compatible motor and battery.

    Ordered Tuesday received Friday, very fast from Spain! The box is in good condition and the vehicle is running perfectly. We're gonna try to break nothing for a few hours 🤣 The 2600mah battery does not fit into the base bracket but by removing a notch it goes well! Otherwise it's fun. It's literally an atomic bomb!

    I just ordered this car for my 13-year-old son and it looks perfect in every way. Aluminum chassis, metal suspension, transmission by cardan, 4 drive wheel with differential, a weight high enough for this scale. In short, it looks really strong and the pieces are easily found on the net. Being offered for this Easter, I have unfortunately not yet been able to try it, but in view of some youtube videos, this rc looks really great.

    It had been many years since I had run out my models. They still had petrol engines and it was time for a practical and not too expensive new / additional model with brushless drive. After watching a few YouTube videos, I decided on this model. The first impression was great, lots of metal parts, big battery and a good remote control. The first drives confirmed the first impression, super model!

    Extremely good value for the price. I have RC-cars ranging from 1/24-scale to 1/5-scale with a price tag ranging in price from 100$ up to 2000$ and this car was bought for my 5year old son so that I don't cry blood if he recks one of my competition cars. I must confess that I had very little faith that this could be any good and when I saw the battery that came with the car unbalanced and puffed (garbage) my hope of this being a good product was slim to none. I picked the car out of its box and the feeling of the shocks was terrible. Only 1 of them had full movement while the others only traveled 1/2 the way. Luckily it was an easy fix, the shocks were overfilled and not bleed. After installing another battery from Hobbyking I took it for I ride. Its FAST on 2s, it durable, the speed can be set on the controller so it fits younger drivers. I haven't experienced overheating or differentials failing and it’s been driven by a five-year-old boy and still in one peace. That says a lot. It’s now set to 100% speed and been crashed a lot. Never tried 3s and I don't see the reason why you would while still using the stock brushed system when a brushless system is dirt cheap and can take 3s without risking to let the magic smoke out. This is an RC-car that I would recommend if someone asked me what to buy on a budget. BUT!!! You need better batteries AND a better charger straight away. Don’t pay the extra money to get 2batteries or the larger capacity one. Buy the car straight up and buy the batteries from someone else.

    Great car! Bought this for my 6 years old. When speed control at max it go really fast so put it on low so the kids can control it. Some parts of the car is in meta and the quality look great. The kid have crash a few times but every is fine. Only complain is the strap for battery is too short for the battery.
