I bought one last year and was very impressed for it being a RTR. Of course it had the typical RTR issues like servos etc. but once all the bugs were worked out, it ran laps like a champ. I was also surprised at that Reedy motor. Once it was broken in, it held a tune and made very decent power. Would definitely recommend.

Over the winter I swapped the Reedy for a Nova MITO 4 and built the hell out of it, so we will see just how much better it is with some upgrades.
