I have had this buggy since they came out and it is the best E buggy TLR has come out with. The buggy has more steering than the 4.0 and handles the bumps better. The updated motor mount system should be the new standard in 1/8th elec buggies I just love it. I upgraded to 17.5 Alu caster blocks right away and I have broke a shock standoff and a rear gearbox (rear gearboxes where updated to fix the issue) This has become my favorite car to race. Well done TLR!

Assembly was smooth. I like that they went metric. Buggy handles very well, big upgrade from the 4.0. For me it corners, jumps, and handles rough spots in the track with more forgiveness.

I owned this buggy for close to 1 1/2 months and it is a great buggy. Did some few modifications such as changing the diff oil weight and found that front and center at 10000 weight and rear at 5000 is perfect. Handles great. Have not broken anything and improved my race lap time. I only hope someone will make a thicker lexan body for this model as the stock feels a bit too thin.

I heard all these reports about broken shocks and front spindle casters breaking, never had any problems. My guess those guys drive their car too hard that's why theirs is broken.

I love this new motor mount set up and it is a better buggy compared to a lot of brands.

The kit is a very fun build. The build was smooth and all the parts fit like a race kit. This car will be fast and competitive. I would not second guess this kit.

I love the way the challenger body looks and love the new design.Losi is a great brand. Now with that said, their quality control has nose dived. I was missed 2 critical bearings. One between diff and driveshaft at both ends. and in the first run the front diff failed. So this will be the last Losi I ever buy! What happened Losi?

Good quality parts in the kit. Expect the few screws that are NOT metrix. (Shock piston)
Other than that really good kit.

But..
First time i've run it, i had a LiPo fire. Reason? Straps went bad. Battery hit Spur. Boom. So.. TLR should address this!
(No the battery was not to wide or to big)
Luckily minor damage.
Just hope TLR will make a new battery mount for this buggy. And better battery straps!

A very fragile whale model kit, for 1 output stage of races broke 3 right hands of the front part, also bought 3 bags of spare parts to repair the model, not reliably
