Jester, expect no more then 35km/h on a stock.

Against other rally cars (Kyosho, HPI) they run great and hold there ground (depending on the driver )

This was my first r/c car. Tamiya is a great company to start out with but if you plan on doing any competitive racing, this kit is not for you. It will hit about 35km/h however getting there it is very slow accelerating, and the engine tends to overheat. This car is bulletproof, you wont break anything! Handling is 'fun' and is not intended for track performance. This is only suitable for baseball diamond rallying or very short hard grass grounds. The ride height is not enough to conquer any 'crazy terrain'.

Hope this helps.
