Very fun to drive and easy as well.
Eric
Before I even got done breaking in the engine the servo broke (could not steer), and the front drive shaft fell off.

If you get into this hobby, know that stuff breaks and you gotta fix/replace parts.

First off id like to say that i gave it a 4 star on durability because you should come into this hobby expecting something to break all the time although so far this car is durable. an the educational rating again was a 4 star because you should at least do some researching before try to start, break-in an engine, and tune an engine on any nitro rc.

Second off, i know this is lengthy but give it a chance, i wouldn't have wasted 15 minutes of my life unless i could help you make a good decision.

I bought this nitro rc thinking it was gonna be cheap and break within the first couple of runs. I recieved it about 3 days ago now and nothing has yet to fail. I know that breaking things is common in this hobby which is why i expected it to break. I pulled it out of the box and nothing on it seemed to be overwhelmingly cheap and have yet to figure out why this RC is so affordable. (I'm somewhat new to this hobby so i know nothing about all of the high performance parts or anything) but besides that, ive crashed this buggy countless times and it still fires up on one or two pulls of the pull start and nothing is cracked or damaged. The break-in process of the engine is very easy. (the factory recommended one). Tuning the motor was also easy as well (assuming you know at least a little bit about nitros) Many people have complained about the steering servo as well as the throttle servo which i have no complaint about. it turns on a dime and turns really fast as well (i would recommend dialing it down a tad to avoid turnovers). The servo also has sufficient torque for this vehicle. Another complaint is that the dog-bones have to much play and fall out. you can also make minor adjustments to them which are easy as well although i have yet to have one give me the slightest problem.

First off, I've seen this car get ALOT of static, saying is is "cheap" "poorly built" "not durable", ect. Despite all this I still decided to purchase one, and I set my expectations VERY low, and what I got was a pleasant surprise. After breaking in the engine, I TORE IT UP. This car has been put through its paces, and surprisingly enough. After bending the bottom plate in a 30+mph crash, everything else was unscathed, after that crash, the car did a frontflip at FULL speed, I walked up to it, flipped it back over, and took off, no problems. The engine runs FLAWLESSLY it roars. After many flips, rolls, and cartwheels later I've only bent two dogbones and the front shock. In my honest opinion, Redcat Racing is a serious force to be reckoned with, and should not be taken as producing "junk". I recommend 100% to purchase this product.

Let me start by saying I have owned more than two dozen various nitro vehicles in my decade of R/C addiction. My first experience with RedCat was the Tornado S30. By the time I bought it it was the upgraded model with the SH .18 engine. I think that for the price, this is BY FAR the best experience one can have with a nitro buggy! EXTREMELY easy to tune. I would let my son (who at the time was 6) drive it. He must have bashed that thing literally HUNDREDS of times!! The only damage it has ever had was a broken rear wing, and a bent dogbone. That is in TWO YEARS of just straight up awful abuse. So many people blow RedCat off because they do not cost a fortune. I have read a lot of bad reviews that were the owner's fault, not RedCat's! BOTTOM LINE if you are looking to have a blast with a nitro vehicle look to RedCat first. If you want to show up at the track with an eye-turning $700 nitro, buy something else. However I guarantee you will enjoy the RedCat just as much if not more! BTW I have bought 4 RedCat products total, I have a couple Traxxas, and HPI products as well. I find myself busting out the Tornado far more than any of them!!

The Buggy arrived very quick from the seller. READ THE MANUAL!!! The English translation is better than most, but the 2 most important parts of the manual is using thread locking compound (Loc-Tite) on the engine bolts and running-in the engine.

Any R/C Model regardless if it say's "Ready to Run" on the box on not you should very carefully check everything over before running it. I had to give the front end of my Buggy an alignment right out of the box since I could tell it was off a bit.

Another small problem was that the front left drive-shaft fell out after the first couple of runs. This was easily fixed by taking apart the steering knuckle and tightening the ball-ends in (clockwise) a couple of turns each. If either of the front drive-shafts has more than a 1/4" of free-play, this will need to be done.

I put 2.2 inch rims and truck tires with a street tread on this buggy. With the larger diameter tires it is even faster with better turning for parking lot Racing. I also retro-fitted a truck body on it to protect the aluminum parts when it flips on the street.

This is the second buggy I have owned and when properly set-up, will compete with the best!! This Buggy is everything they say it is!!

I recently bought this R/C nitro car. I was reading all the reviews and some did get me worried. But as i costumer is this R/C i have to say no regrets. The R/C car comes exactly how they say. You most do your research about this R/C vehicles if not you will have problems getting it going. Once you mastered this you will enjoy this R/C. After 3 days of having it we decide to get another one... I promise you wont regret getting this car. The price is amazingly cheap.
