Amazon.com

XPV stands for Xtreme Performance vehicle and this radio controlled car is certainly living up to its name. Bringing the pain to all terrain, the Super Terranator is a remote control vehicle for any season, as it performs equally over land, water, mud, and snow. It also has some impressive numbers: two engines, 4-wheel drive, 12 volts of juice, up to 15mph, and working range of 150 feet.

Terranator
This RC marvel tears up land, water, mud, and snow for extreme performance.

The ability to conquer almost any terrain, means the Terranator is actually five vehicles in one. With huge, knobby tires and a unique water skimming hull, this RC is a street car, dragster, snowmobile, 4x4, and swamp buggy combined into one awesome vehicle. The bold orange and black color and a design influenced by real stealth planes give the car an appearance appropriately matching its fierce capabilities. The XPV Super Terranator comes ready to play with a rechargeable nickel metal hydride battery, a full function two-channel controller, and one 9v battery for the controller.

Does not work as advertised, no water, no snow, no fun.

It now takes about 2-3 hours for the unit to charge but I can not get more than 5 minutes of play time.

After following the charging instructions the first car didn't work at all and was promptly returned.

I had to test two of these cars. The first one was dead off the shelf, but looked like it was returned to the factory and just repackaged.

The second car wasn't much better. Out of the box there was white paint smudges all over the chassis of the car. There are two decorative fins near the rear of the car that don't seem to serve any purpose other than to fall off and infuriate the user.

To charge the car you need to unscrew the back panel and hook up the ac adapter to the hidden plug. On BOTH of the cars the plug's metal contacts were bent out of alignment and required careful repositioning to charge either of them.

After following the charging instructions the first car didn't work at all and was promptly returned. The second car ran for 2 minutes and then the battery was drained so much that all the tires would do is vibrate.

I'm returning the second one and taking my money to a different car.

The Super Terranator is a VERY fast and really fun toy RC car. It had TONS of torque, you definitely don't want to run this indoors as it goes from still to full speed in a second! Its very easy to spin in circles, slide turn, and run across just about any surface. Racing lightning speed across puddles of mud and water is really fun and allowed since the case is waterproof, though its not made to float or be submerged in water. This really should be a 5 star toy but...

as the other reviewer stated the battery life is horrendous. Perhaps we are just getting a bad batch of cars but I charged the battery for 5 hours as the instructions stated and was only able to play for about 5 minutes. My second charge, again about 4 hours this time, allowed for less than 5 minutes of play. The unit has a green light that turns off when the charging is complete. It now takes about 2-3 hours for the unit to charge but I can not get more than 5 minutes of play time. I have emailed Jakk's Pacific to ask if this is normal run time but I have not received an answer back from them.

*IF* you could even get 10-15 minutes of play time out of a charge this toy would be worth it. If you could buy more than one battery it would also be acceptable but the battery is permanently encased in the unit. At Amazon's heavily discounted price that I paid (over 80% off retail) I am not too disappointed in my purchase, however, at full retail price I would be sending it back in a heartbeat.

EDIT: I was told my Jakk's Pacific that I should get more play time from this toy, about 10-15 minutes per charge, and that I should send it back for a replacement. I will be doing this and will you you know how the new car goes.

We have 2 of these the green and orange. They both will run for about 15 minutes or just enough time to terrorize the dog , run into the car and fling gravel all over the place . They are fast and you better aim them toward hard objects or things will be destroyed( not the car but things like ankles). I actually bought 2 more for backups and spare parts. I have not had anything go wrong with these.

My 5 year old received this as a gift this year. On Christmas Day, we were outside and he was running this car up and down the street, over the snowbanks, flipping it, and having great fun. It was very surprising to see the poor reviews. We have only run it three times now, but the charge outlasted our tolerance to the cold (15 minutes) each time! And it is durable - he has flipped it over numerous times, run it through puddles, and boy does it fly! My husband got in trouble with it on Christmas day, trying to use it in the house - it is definitely NOT an indoor toy! I highly recommend it.

I agree with the other reviewers that this car needs some improvement, especially on the battery life. Though I can get about 10-15 min on a single charge, the charge can take up to 3-4 hours before the green light turns off. Definitely need to move to the Li-poly thin technology.

The biggest concern for me is the poor design of the antenna. The black antenna wire needs to be placed into a long clear ridged plastic tube cover which is inserted into the top of the car so that it is pointing upward. I found that on the second turn over (which it does frequently before you learn how to drive this machine!) the plastic tube broke right at the car surface, with that part of it still stuck in the unit so jammed in that I could not remove it. This left the antenna dangling down, which cuts back on the distance you can control the car, and the car driving over it repeatedly. I called Jakkx and they want me to send it back to Amazon, which I won't do since it's a design flaw and not a vendor issue. I asked if I could just drop it by their headquarters/warehouse which is less than 2 miles from my home and they said "Sorry, send it back to Amazon, or mail it to us". Since I got this for a VERY good price from Amazon, shipping it back to them would be at least half of the cost of the original unit!

The fix for this is easy, just put in a semi-ridged tube or spring coil on the bottom where it connects, and presto! no problem. I have an email out to Jakkx engineers to see if they will incorporate this and fix my unit after I drop it off (please?)!

Now for the good! This car is FAST and can tear up any dirt, grass or gravel surface you put it on! I would say that the speed of this car easily surpasses 20 mph (though I've not clocked it).
