Depends on what you want to do with them.

If you're just running around a parking lot or in fromt of your house, it's a decent car. Good straight line speed.

If you're thinking about racing them, you might want to sell them and get something that will handle better. The suspension geometry doesn't hold up to take corners at speed.

Also, one of the worst braking systems ever. Just a fiberglass disk and 2 metal "pads". Tons of fade and no power to slow down for the turns.

It's not really a bad car for playing around though.
