If you watched me drive it, you might think that I am trying to destroy it. But it hasn't broken yet. It just keeps going and going. :)
It handles pretty decently on the clay track I run it on, but does not take hard landings well. You really need to be efficient at hitting the landings on jumps. That's why I would not recommend this buggy for a beginner who does a lot of bashing. The antenna housing snapped the first time the buggy landed on its roof.
My biggest criticism is that the connecting wires for a racing transmitter are tucked inside a protective plastic case. It's a royal pain to keep taking the cover of the case off and putting it back on to move the transmitter around if you're using one transmitter on multiple cars. I accidentally stripped some of the wires stored inside this "protective" case from taking the cover on and off so many times.
Overall I would say it's not a bad car for the price. But I'm pretty sure the new B5 is currently priced for less than what I paid for this buggy, so not sure why anyone would want to pay more for this older model. I would recommend this buggy for experienced to advanced RC drivers and racers. Newbies stay away!)
