However, upon opening to put in NEW Duracells, the temporary batteries had leaked.
NOT ACCEPTABLE! My son "clean out" the acidic residue, but how long will it work?
Failed batteries are a major issue for ever

I was hesitant when buying as I read some reviews about it breaking, but it has taken some heavy use and serious crashes and seems rock solid. Some people mentioned wires or aerials breaking and having to get refunds but as far as I can see there is no aerial on the car that can break. When you open the packaging for the first time there is a wire connecting the car to the controller but this is just so the car wheels move in the packaging without batteries so people can ‘try me’ test in shops. You need to remove the wire completely and put 6 Aa batteries in the car. Reading the reviews I wonder if some people are just trying to use the car in demo mode with wire attached and when it falls off they think the car is broken maybe, never actually putting batteries in it.
First things first though, I would recommend getting a good set of rechargeable batteries. Something like the 2500mAh Duracell or Eneloops, or anything along those lines. Having said that, the batteries lasted a good long time, even when my daughter left the power on for days at a time. I am writing this from the perspective of someone who used to have Tamiya RC cars in the 80s, which would run out of batteries after about 10 minutes and take a day to recharge, so from that point of view this Kart seems to last forever!
Controlling this Kart is easy and fun, as you'd expect. It works a little different depending on whether it's in standard mode of anti-gravity mode. When in standard mode, it works well on both hard floors and soft carpets, and it's nice and grippy and responsive. In anti-grav mode, you do need to stick to a hard floor as it'll struggle to move on anything even slightly soft. That's not something I'd consider a negative or a design flaw, as they'd probably have to design actually anti-grav to get round it.
I would also recommend using this in a good sized space too. It is very very nippy and whizzes around very quickly, so if you're using it in a smaller room you might find yourself crashing quite often. But it also seems very robust, and we've had no problems after banging it into solid items of furniture.
And at the end of the day, this Kart is just fun to mess around with. My daughter loves it, but I'd probably say that I love it more! Heck, I'm just a big kid at heart anyway! And trying all the little tricks is lots of fun too, doing wheelies and donuts and all sorts.
Overall, definitely something I'd recommend for kids, and fun for those of us who are still big kids too. I just wish they had a full range of all the Mario Kart characters, it'd be great to get some proper races going with a few of these.
You’d be better off buying normal little MARIO cars. Or a normal RC car.
