Product was shipped fast and was the best price on the internet! Highly recommend if you are looking for a budget crawler that gives you top of the line components. It is great as a starter or upgrade it and make it even better for much cheaper than other top of the line brands.
The body is a killer, components are good. Low speed crawling seems to be addressed, it’s a lot smoother than before. Perhaps, they properly lube the portal axles now? I haven’t torn this apart because Im having so much fun. Watch Redcat Racing University channel on YouTube - how you can make the inner foam tires softer, also how to adjust bumper mount mods for better crawling - free mods! Even without them, this truck is more than capable straight from the box. For $270, this is the best crawler you can buy and it can definitely hang with higher up price crawlers. Great job, Redcat and BRS ships really fast, I love it!
Arrived pretty quick considering the Covid-19 restrictions and out of the box a great crawler. It was well put together and mounted properly. Great RC, I definitely recommend.
