I have no positive first person hands on reviews of this car...but
In my opinion, Duratrax has been coming out with a better line of rc cars performance and set up wise. The Evader Pro, Vendetta, and Warhead are all a sign of overall improvement to me. Traxxas has taken a similar approach to compensate it's weaker line of vehicles with the revo and jato it would seem.
I wouldn't place as much doubt on the newer vehicles duratrax has to offer. I've seen a few people on these forums throw around the word duratrash, but hopefully those days are in the past...?
