The Helion Contakt 12TR Truggy offers speed, durability and a value unheard of in its class. A 2.4 GHz 2-channel radio system eliminates frequency conflicts, while the 390 brushed motor churns out blistering acceleration and incredible speeds in excess of 15mph. Constructed from lightweight, yet strong material, the fully independent suspension and coil-over friction damper shocks support the chassis through off-road terrain.

The bottom-load battery compartment provides easy access to the 1500mAh, 7.4V 2s LiPo rechargeable battery pack with High Current T-Plug. With the LiPo supplying the power, the full ball bearings throughout the transmission reduce friction and increase speed and run time. The all weather 2-in-1 modular ERS unit and separate servo gives crisp throttle and steering response while the high grip, long wear tires keep you hooked up over a multitude of surfaces. Included is a 0.5A AC LiPo balance charger and charging bag that improves your driving-to-waiting ratio while increasing safety.

I really like this car! It goes through our lawn nicely. It also goes quite fast and it is very durable.

Less than 1 hour on concrete with curbing and 1 motor replaced. The plastic fan piece appears to be floating loose inside. Front right wheel seems sloppy in the steering arms/servo area as the wheel is on tight, so a straight line is a challenge even after adjusting. Replaced with new motor. Apparently tightened the screw to the gear on motor shaft too tight as it is now slipping. So back to the store again tomorrow. At this rate it'll see more down time than my 90's Audi! Car bottoms out too easily in my opinion. So far, I can't say much better built than my old radio shack cars.

I've had this truck for a couple months and replaced 2 servos, 1 motor, and 2 dog rear bones. This is with less than 30 minutes of run time. It always seems to be broken down and I'm waiting on parts. It's a decent beginner RC but don't expect it to last long. Thank goodness the parts are found cheap on Amazon. I will say it is fun to drive and can handle terrain better than the other (2) options from Helion in the same size. This is because it comes with larger tires and bounces well across things. My friend bought the Impakt and has had zero problems with it. He also beats the crap out of it. That car has much smaller tires and is faster.

So far I am rather impressed with this vehicle. Bought 2 for my sons and they love them. I have to dial down the speed for the younger one so he is able to control it because it is fast. Very neat feature which is helping him learn to control it. We are about 4 runs in and so far they have taken a decent beating and we get 30 plus minutes of run time easy. Pretty amazing especially for the price at this point

I am brand new to the hobby of RC Cars and if my first car experience is any indication of the future, I am going to have a whole lot of fun and spend a whole lot of cash!! This car cost me $99.00 and after driving it in the rain, through the wet grass, in the mud and through the puddles, I am ecstatic!!! I get about 45 minutes to an hour of full throttle use per charge. The responsiveness of this vehicle is awesome. This car is fast and handles rough terrain like gravel driveways, grass and dirt with ease. This car does everything good, no need to buy a more expensive car, but I know that I will. Can't wait to get back to HobbyTown!
