Just as a heads up, when buying this RC car, you will also need a few other things:
-12 AA batteries which can be rechargeable or not. I have been having a good experience with some Eneloop ones.
-You will also need an starter kit for the glow plug which comes with an igniter, a wrench to take the glow plug out if you flood the engine or if you need to check for power of the igniter, and a fuel bottle.
-Since this is a nitro powered RC car, you will also need nitro fuel (not regular gas). Good brands are recommended further down this review.
-Blue Loctite is highly recommended to keep metal to metal screws in place.
-Oil for the air filter to prevent dust from going inside the engine.
-After run oil is recommended by some to put inside the engine after use. It is relatively inexpensive at 2.99 and gives you a piece of mind.

Let me start by saying that this is a great first RC car. It has decent power and there are a good amount of upgrades that can be done including engine, shocks, aluminum parts, and many others. One of the draw backs of buying this RC car is that parts can, mostly, only be found online and not at most Hobby shops. It is pretty easy to break some parts when you have a little car going this fast, especially if you like to make it jump and other more demanding tasks than just have it run on a smooth paved road.

The good news is that Exceed, Redcat racing, and Himoto all make very similar cars with very comparable, if not the same quality parts, which can usually be interchanged with each other. This allows you a bigger selection of parts online. There are forums online of people who own cars from these brands that have tried parts from all these companies as well as from other more known companies like HPI, Traxxas, or Losi.

I bought this rc for my sons first rc thinking it was a cheap entry level rc it would be ok for him to bash it up and learn on, then as he became more experienced to buy more expensive and better brands.....Well, now I bought this a little over a year ago, when we first opened the box it was sweet, although I could not get it running for him, I had to call redcat and the customer service was excellent and within minutes had the little buggy up and running. However when you first run these you cant take off on them, I had it setting on a brick for the first few tanks to break it in and tune it---YES i read the instructions and checked online for proper break in of a new motor. We then together drove this thing unbearably sloooooow for a tank and pushed it more with the next tank and by the third running tank we were jumping, spinning and having a blast with it. This redcat buggy over a year later is still alive and kickin although the trans was a bit bashed it still goes. we have only spent money on the upgraded starter called a roto start. The pull start totally stinks on any nitro imo. So this little buggy has seen better days the wheels are finally balding, the trans a bit messed up, we bent the front and just bent it back, totally a basher, and we can NOT kill this thing!! we have jumped it flipped it, had the neighbors out to watch us in awe, I would totally recommend redcat to anyone wanting an rc. we have since aquired quite a few rc's including hpi, traxxas, mugen, but this redcat is always our goto and we are getting ready to jump into an s30 made by redcat.
I dont know if this review will help anyone, but we have had a blast with it. just make sure to break in the engine right, and it will treat you right.

I picked this up on a whim after I sold all of my darkroom equipment on Ebay. I have never owned one before, but always wanted one. I bought from the Warehouse Deals section, and it arrived about a week later. When I opened the box, I saw that bumper was broken off of the back, which it was why it was a reduced item. It was only cosmetic, so no problem. Also, the factory defaults are not suitable for cold weather running (16 degrees this morning). I broke in the engine as described in the manual, but in a warm environment. Once I tuned the idle and low speed needle setting for cold weather, it hauled. My daughter and I used it this morning and she loved it. Fast, responsive, and easy to run once it was tuned. A lot of the parts are plastic, but since I don't plan on racing, I don't really care. Also, I looked at replacement parts on line, and they are pretty inexpensive. I suppose if I wanted to, I could upgrade to aluminum, but I am not too worried about it. If you buy a Nitro car, do your homework, look at videos on line and make sure that you have the motivation to tinker with the settings. Nitro engines require tuning and maintenance depending on conditions, but are way more fun than electric, I think. This is a great car to start with, and we could not be more pleased. Also, if you buy this car, YOU NEED THE STARTER KIT WITH IT. It contains the glow plug warmer, fuel bottle, wrenches, etc. and is a must have.
