Compare this to what you get for a $75-100 + dollar Walmart/toys r us RC, there is really no comparison.

[...]
<a href="[...]>embedded link if it works</a>

-it is ready to go out of the box
-it is really quite durable except for servo/shell,
-it has bounced off curb at speed and only cut tire
-it has rolled at speed cartwheeled and flip dozen times straight and is fine (except for brittle shell)
-on big jumps we did eventually blew out a shock, but more oil and Teflon tape and back in business
-replacement parts are available
-its 4x4, got through 3" lawn grass fine
-they do warranty their electronics
-the ESC is programmable which is cool, you can set punch, brake initial and full brake and other things
-has oil filled adjustable suspension
-with the nimh battery it goes about 28 mph
-the range is really far, I've gone out so far I can't see front from back and it is still in range

Not great(fix these and it would be a 5 star):
-the shell is way too brittle
-the steering servo is junk, it's warrantied but don't bother , Just get a metal gear replacement and you will be happier.
-the remote works fine, but it has a cheap look/feel to it.

If you find this review helpful or not, please use the indictor. Reviews are time consuming and amazon is getting free intellectual product, however I have found other's reviews very helpful; therefore I am doing the same. In theory, if everyone would leave unbiased feedback good/bad it would help the manufacturers provide better products.

I am not part of the vine program getting free product for "unbiased" reviews.

I am a first time buyer in the RC world so I wanted something I could learn on but still keep up with my friends who have the Traxxas, HPI, and Losi brand sc (short course) and mt (monster trucks) vehicles. I probably spent a good 3 weeks researching the right truck before i made my decision. After reading extensive forum reviews and weeding through all of the Redcat haters out there I finally came up with right truck at the right price for me. This SC10e Caldera is AWESOME! I have raced, jumped, smashed, and bashed this truck and it keeps on going. I've even taken it through puddles and mud (i dont recommend doing this unless you upgrade to a waterproof esc motor) which had no effect on performance. The only minor hiccup so far was a rock wedging itself between the pinion and spur gears which made a clicking sound but was fixed immediately when the small rock was removed. I also love that this truck can be converted to more of a monster truck style very easily. You basically just need some new shock springs, tires, and body which you can find all at a pretty reasonable price right here on amazon.

At half or even a third of the price of the "higher quality" (more like well known) 4x4 sc1/10 scale trucks you cant go wrong with this Redcat Caldera. I was skeptical to buy this product as would any new buyer due to the abundance of information and reviews about RC cars out there, but this thing rips. All of my friends cant believe it keeps up with their $600 short course trucks. I have kept the entire thing stock for now but when i purchased the vehicle I bought some extra goodies (upgrades) for it just from all of the bad reviews about this truck's steering servo and tires.

I Love This Truck. Head To Head Against My Slash 4X4 Its A Winner, Out Of The Box! The Only Issue I Didn't Like Was The Sluggish Steering Response, But It Still Does Well And For The Price (Half Of What I Paid For My Slash) It's Rock And Roll Time.
