I purchased 2 of these one for myself and one for my son (who's 8) this thing hauls azz, its fast, almost too much for him to handle, i have to keep him in an open area. It's brushless so the motor is not limited. ive upgraded mine to a sky lipo 4000 mah battery and have gotten it up to 50+ mph. my son has crashed his a few times, its durable but not in-destructive, he has bent one of his front shocks and front dogbone, they are easy to repair and the parts are cheap. its loads of fun. i would recommend this to anyone just starting into scale RC's as a hobby. when i get time i will post video so others can make an informed judgment

Wow. This is a fantastic starter car! I bought my son a less expensive buggy for his birthday after reading good reviews. That one has been fun, but has some limitations and needs frequent repairs due to plastic parts (as we expected). This one was nearly twice the price, but I bought it so I could "ride along" and have a spare to give my son while his was being repaired. That turned out to be a great choice!

The Tornado EPX Pro came with lots of aluminum parts, including the shock tower and center longeron. All the electronics are waterproof, and the differentials are entirely enclosed. I ran it through my yard, on the street, and through some snow for about 20 minutes. Snow and grass were literally packed under the shell, covering everything except the ESC fan (see photos). And it had zero problems. A low setting on the heat gun and paying attention to the drip path (to avoid pooling water in the electronics), and it's as good as new.

So far, I haven't taken the Tornado to a real course, so I haven't tested it jumping, yet. But I have run it for another 20 minutes on a dirt field. It's very fast for having a stock 3500mAh LiPo, and very responsive. The steering servo is fairly quick, and centers properly.

The included radio has both steering and throttle adjust, and steering d/r (to set the width of the servo response). I wish it had a throttle limiter on the controller to ease the learning curve, but that just means I have to be more careful while I gain experience.

I'm quite happy with this buggy, and would recommend it as a starter car for those who are not interested in constant repairs or upgrades.

Unbelievable speed and power, Seems to be built well. Control is very precise. Lots of fun. Great suspension almost like a full size buggy. Handles the bumps well. Battery life depends on how you use it.

I believe I've already left a review for this product however my wife and I have put a few miles on it now and here are a few updates:

- 2s LiPo is a must have... toss the included NiCad (whatever it is)
- good on the street however you will need some street tires from a online/local store.
- parts are cheap... buying a extra car for a complete spare is cheaper.
- can easily be changed from 4WD to 2WD by removing the main or front shaft(s)

I noticed 2-3S on the ESC so I purchased a 5000mAh 3S and tested it... INSANE!
This required upgrading to bead-lock wheels and foamed street tires or else they fly off.
THROTTLE on 3s: 1/4 is touchy... 1/2 is steady... and 3/4-FULL is like 100-shot NOS spinning tires and popping wheelies.

For those of you that have NOT YET tried 2s or 3s LiPo I say get one of each... gives you an hour at full-throttle and all the fun you and your car can handle.

This car is so much fun! I've already smacked it into a curb. Front shock tower bent in a little, upper suspension link popped off and dogbones fell out of the hub. I put the dogbones back in, popped the upper suspension link back on, and bent the tower back in place. Good to go! So far I've only used this with the stock 2000mah Nimh battery and it moves pretty dang quick. I just bought a lipo, I'll edit review after I've had a chance to run it.

edit- just went through one run on a 5000mah lipo 2s. Now I have to buy a new set of rear tires! My android phone GPS clocked the car at 31.88MPH. I think I might have to try a 3S XD

The run time was also much greater with the lipo. I went about 30 minutes full throttle. Really recommend buying a better charger, and a lipo with this car.

edit2- I've been running this car for almost two months now and It finally broke. lol. I have beat this thing to crap. Cartwheeled it tons of times. I've reshaped the shock towers a couple of times. Until now it's just kept on going.

I let a friend drive it yesterday and he slid sideways into a curb juuust right. Snapped the rear hub carrier. I just ordered a replacement set (2 carriers) for under 10 bucks and I'll be back on the road!

My ONLY complaint so far is that my local hobby stores don't carry parts for it. Gotta wait for shipping before you're back to tearin' it up.

This is an amazing buggy. It is FAST out of the box, and can easily be a speed demon with a battery upgrade. I bought this for my son, who got it as his introduction to off road hobby R/C cars. If you're interested in this, keep in mind it is not a toy. These are designed for enthusiasts that have a basic understanding of mechanics and a desire to spend as much time working on their cars as they do racing them. Redcat has a strange reputation in the racing world, and many people seem to enjoy bashing their quality and durability. I've owned several of them and like them a lot.

Out of the box this will run, although the battery that comes in the buggy is weak and doesn't last long. They seem to put cheap batteries in the ready to run (RTR) vehicles, probably to keep the cost down. The charger that comes with the car is equal to the battery- basically useless. This car is brushless and capable of a high quality LiPo battery- and with one in it the buggy really screams. One thing to note, the buggy comes with a NiMh battery, but the ESC comes programed for the LiPo. LiPo batteries can not be run down below a certain point or they cannot be recharged. The ESC monitors the voltage and when it gets to the lower level stops driving. It's a great feature and necessary for a LiPo battery. Sadly with the NiMh flooring the accelerator draws a lot of power, and the ESC will shut down thinking the battery is dead. If you're going to run the NiMh battery you need to change the ESC settings. This buggy came with good instructions for Redcat- but they don't tell you anything about programing the ESC. Fortunately you can get on You Tube and watch someone walk you through the programing. It's simple if you know what you're looking at, but without the video it would be impossible.
