  1. Great first time item for newbies. Review by Adam
    Fun Factor
    Price
    Quality

    This is without a doubt a great first time buy for anyone looking to dabble in the world of RC cars. putting it together took around a week and without only a few annoyances where the car nearly met the wall.
    Pros:

    Great value
    good for a project
    loads of fun and interaction whilst building it and after
    All round a definite buy for first timers like me

    Cons:

    A lot of the pieces are plastic therefore relatively easy to break when driving it around (I have already had to replace the front suspension with the metal ones as it snapped).
    Some extremely fiddly DIY at times where I had to get more than one pair of hands involved to get the job done.
    Been running it now for nearly 6 weeks and I found the engine is a bit fiddly to find that sweet spot. I am still playing around with it and it is getting a tad annoying as its not as simple as starting it up, having a 5 - 10 minute fiddle then off you go. If the carburettor isn't set properly then it will either die after a few seconds or the car will want to go before you even get your finger on the accelerator, which brings me onto the carburettor. I am now experiencing problems with the screw holding the air cover in place meaning I have no way of setting the carburettor correctly until I resolve this...which I will.

    So in summary; a great buy, just what I wanted (something fiddly, and time consuming with a lot to get out of it), a way to get slightly more mechanically minded, a long term hobby, but one that I would recccomend upgrading certain parts of, i.e plastic suspension to metal etc.
    I highly recommend it but if your looking for something a bit more reliable I would go for the already built models.

    Don't let the little issues put you off, after all, there are going to be set backs and if it wasn't the way it was then it wouldn't be worth it. You wouldn't discard your car if it suddenly annoyed you for any small or large reason.

    NITROTEK SAYS - Thanks for the great review. If you are having to adjust the carb before each use it means that probably one of your screws on the engine or exhaust are loose. Because if there is a loose screw then air starts to get into the engine which messes the settings up. Tighten the loose screw and then no air can get in so the carb settings will stay the same.

  2. Worth every penny!!! Review by Nathaniel Watts

    I bought this car 3 years ago and have had some fun with the car. It's very quick and fairly straight forward to put together. I've had a few problems with it, like the servo braking but there cheap enough to replace. I've put the upgraded exhaust on along with an upgraded servo and it runs like a dream. I would highly recommend it to anyone who's new to nitro cars. (Posted on 04/01/2014)

    I was that impressed with the quality and price of this product after building and using for a few months I also bought the cyclone car kit for track racing. Both cars are quite fast and responsive to controls. Good upgrades availabe especially the electric starter, ive fitted one to both cars. Brilliant product. (Posted on 08/12/2013)

  4. Brilliant Review by Dad and Jake

    I built this with my 10 year old son. We had a great time building this together and, being new to Nitro cars, it gave us a great insight into how they work.

    Took about 8 hours in total, mainly because the instruction manual was so good.

    It took a while to get it started when it was built but now we've got it running it's great fun.

    If you're looking for a father and son project then we can highly recommend building a nitro car. (Posted on 06/01/2013)

    Bought this kit a week ago, took a few days on and off building had one or 2 problems but sorted it. Well worth the money and instructions very detailed. Had problems with break in tho couldn't get setting right, but will get there in the end.

    I Bought this buggy off here last month and as i am a novice to this i saw it come in parts i didnt know how i was going to do this. But looking at the instruction manual is brilliant it is crystal clear, the break in procedure is tough because you may need to make alterations. But all in all once you crack ths part the fun is endless and the price of it makes it that little bit more special. (Posted on 01/07/2012)

    very good product and extremly good value.
    all parts there and easy to read instructions.
    only thing i would recomend is to get a rechargeable glow starter since the one which is supplyed eats batteries in no time.
    over all a very good product. (Posted on 09/08/2011)
