Default How good is the stock kit Micro RS4?

Same as title. Everywhere I go, it seems like all the micros I see are hopped-up. My question is will the stock kit Micro RS4 be satisfying? Also, what are the best spare parts and, I guess, option parts for the car?

Thanks

The stock micro is great, most of the hop-ups are not really required. if you get a 7.2 volt rechargable pack it's plenty fast enough (with 4 AA's it's a bit on the slow side) and handles great. It's the same with most cars, there's always something you can buy to make it 'better' but out of the box the micr is really good.

Id spend money on:
A rechargeable 6-7 cell battery pack
A better motor (elite or big block if you want crazy power)
Some better tires (foams)

I found the stock micro to be alot of fun and well worth the money

honestly i think its is too ssslllllooooowwwwww.

the reason why ppl hop-up thier micros is because its really boringly slow. so the get the elite coreless, speed 300, big block, etc.

BUT remember its ALL plastic!!!!!! the the car would't survive a crash if you use stronger motors or go beyond 4 cells.

That isn't true.

These cars are very durable. The fact that they are plastic is what makes them durable.

Upgrading the micro will make it much more fun to drive and even more durable than it already is.

The micro is perfect stock if you just want something to do on rainy days, if your a speed junky, get a 6 cell, 540 conversion.

The micro is far from perfect in stock form. This is clearly apparent if you actually race your micro.
