For $150 I'd say go for it if you are just getting in and want to learn to drive...

You probably won't find much else for that price.

You may want to consider looking on eBay for a used car. You will get a little more car for the cash.

If you buy that car you will be into rc for about 2 days because A)you wont be able to tune the engine or B) you will break a part and wont find any replacements..

Save few more bucks and buy an Ofna Ultra LX One, you can get it for 200$ and you'll find parts everywhere.

Terrible, stuff like this is what makes people ditch the hobby. Never buy the off brand stuff like exceed its just a head ache. Instead spend 400 on a rtr 4x4 slash and no worries and have way more fun then runing this lil waste of time.
