FUN & FAST RACE CAR DRIVING
~ What ~
Weighing 2.7 pounds and measuring 11.75 by 7.5 by 4.25 inches, this bright lime green and black racing dune buggy is 1/14th the scale of a real vehicle. Using a 9-volt battery for the remote control, the toy car made of engineering nylon comes with a remote control, USB cord, 6-volt car battery, and instructions in a gift box. It is recommended for ages 8 and older.
~ Why ~
I like that this electric car can be enjoyed by both our young grandchildren, puppy, and visiting friends with teens (okay, our 2 adult sons will most likely fight over it too). Able to be recharged via the USB cord (it takes 4 hours to completely charge if empty), runs up to 20 minutes, and can go up to 9.5 miles per hour. It is easy to turn its wheels with the remote control by moving the trigger back and forth with one hand and turning the wheel with the other. I found it maneuvered better than a larger one we own.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like racing small vehicles may not be interested in this item. Some may want a larger or smaller car, although this one looks somewhat realistic with the added figure wearing a white helmet. Although it is plastic, it is heavier than our other one too.
~ Wish ~
It would be nice if these were available in different color options.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for a fun way to remotely drive a small race car on the driveway, sidewalk, dirt, gravel, low-profile grass, and Berber or short carpet, this one does the trick, bouncing back with its 4 spring shocks when it is whacked into a brick wall or furniture on purpose or by accident.
Thanks to Best Choice for this product that I am freely evaluating.
