I purchased this vehicle for my son's 5th birthday. He is really into cars and trucks and remote control vehicles. It has been three days and we still cannot get this thing working correctly, it dies out almost immediately after playing with it for a few minutes. Maybe the battery is a dud or maybe it's the vehicle. But one additional thing is the box gives you the impression you only need to buy the batteries seperately which is two 'AA' batteries. But in all actuality you have to buy a 30.00 flex pax battery too. Very misleading. Very not worth it.

Buy another car. Anything from traxxas is great and will work awesome. Do a little research because there is more to these RC cars then you would expect. Don't go gas powered, it's expensive and they break down too often. A great starter car would be the traxxas slash, it will reach 20mph with a nickel polimer battery and a brushed motor, with the brushless system and a lipo it can go 60mph. The original set up is just as much and it is better.
