It's fast enough with the stock motor to get out of control, but its still easy to drift. I love the car and have never broken a single part even when I put rally tires on it and ran it on the track.
However I wouldn't buy a Redcat version. Exceed and hsp sell the exact same thing for a lot less. You can get the brushless pro version from exceed/hsp for the same amount as the Redcat.
I say buy one. I you're looking for one to have fun with in front of the house they are great. Plus they offer all the upgrades that others do with the exception of ball diffs. That's my ONLY complaint.
Well I bought it today and turns out it is the exeed version, and it's got a dtx 3900 motor so I think it's fast lol, and it has aluminum knuckles I got it for 80 so I guess it'll work for that cheap a price lol
