I think this guy should be a fiction book writer..lol The Truck is not the problem, just the driver. Losi makes excellent quality products and I'm a happy owner of multiple Losi products.)

Losi 1/36 Micro Desert Truck RTR
the truck with the lipo and brushless is about 30 mph stock motor/battery maybe 12 mph -//- this little truck is the best investment ever once you upgrade it to brushless its so fast snd the acceleration is amazing! But if you want brushless dont buy an expensive spektrum system use the reciever from the hpi micro rs4 because it fits perfectly on the chassis.)
