It's a killer asphalt car, but I'd save your money if your on carpet. The chassis is very flexible.

I drive one and I can't say how it is on asphalt but on carpet I like mine. It is very fast and reactive. As far as breaking it is just like anything, hit something hard enough and you have a good chance of breaking anything. I have never broke a body mount or anything on the car yet. I ran straight into the butt end of a 2 x 4 and didn't break. I know picking out a 12th scale is hard as there are so many out there.

Love mine on carpet it bites nicely in the corners. And yes if you do hit hard in the front you will break that front body post piece. (Like Drew Cat said ) But Overall it gets better for me everyday.

I run the big associated body mounts up front and I have not had any problems.

Yea im the friend Drew_Cat was talking to and the kit itself is amazing love it, its got great handling and everything but if you notice the front where the body posts are it is alittle fragile but it lasts i only broke because I was at a track ive never been to and I got hit a lot by the wall lol but other wise the kit is great I recommend it to anyone.
