Happily surprised that it came with a 3200mah Lipo battery, although that wasn't mentioned in the description.
BAD: The included lipo charger did not have the correct plug to charge the battery but fortunately I had already purchased a lipo battery charger with tons of connectors that fit the bill. Would have been a show stopper if I had to wait for shipping of a charger/connector.
TIP: Althoughh the included lipo charger has the balance plug to keep both cells balanced, I'd buy a better one with programmable features and safety options.
GOOD: I've had tons of fun with my kids so far. Went to the park and it was wicked fast.
BAD: It only lasts about 15-20 on the 3200mah Lipo. But I've bought two 5000mah lipos and they are being delivered tomorrow. I also lost one screw that holds the wheel hub to the frame. Luckily I found a replacement in my tool box that fit. Use loctite on the screws to avoid this.
TIP: Learn how to handle and charge lipo batteries properly. Setting the charger to provide the correct amperage and voltage is crucial to your safety and the longevity of your batteries.
Example: The 3200mah lipo that came with this car, would be charged at 3.2amps, 7.4volts.
The 5000mah lipos I'll be getting would be charged at 5amps, 7.4volts.)
