The HobbyPlus CR-18 1/18 RTR Scale Mini Crawler brings unrivaled performance to the micro scale world.

Truck is very powerful for its size and has good climbing ability also has detailed body shell and lighting. Very good suspension articulation very fun to climb pillows and piles of hot wheels.
The not so good
Truck has a loud electrical noise when accelerating i think this had a defective motor from beginning. On the second charge I noticed the truck was surging and it still had a lot of battery left. Also noticed the motor took on a different noise not very good kinda grindy sound.
I called hobbytown and expressed my concern and I was told a service tech would call me back. I did get a call back from a tech he was very understanding of the problem and told me it was likely the motor which I kinda already figured. He said he would send me a couple replacment motors but alas they are on backorder so I will wait.
So all in all I like the truck wish it was more durable like my scx24 but the motors are cheap if you can get one.
So three stars for truck 5 for customer service.
Update i have changed my review to 4 stars got the replacement motors they gave me two of them thanks. The motor was the problem the little truck runs nicely me and my kids were playing for a good hour with the little trucks tonight it works great now.
