Right out of the box, the car is ready to go — just put
batteries in the radio and install your pack in the car and
you’re o;. Everything is easy to use and includes well-marked switches and knobs for easy adjustment. ;e
radio has no antenna to get caught on stu; in the woods
or around the house and break o; like many other models on the market. ;e car also comes with large plugs on
the speed controller and battery that cannot be accidentally plugged in backwards. ;e power switch is mounted
so you don’t have to take the body o; the car, making it
much easier to get your car ready to run. My first impression after driving the Bug around was how well it drives.
With the narrow scaled track width you would think it
would be tippy, but this cannot be further from the truth.
It is very nimble and forgiving, which for me, is a big plus
because the fun is to drive your RC car — not have to flip
it over every five seconds. ;e electronics performed
flawlessly with higher-than-expected results from the
super-smooth speed controller to radio and servo. ;e
tires I found to have great o;-road traction whether in
the dirt or the grass and o;ered great ground clearance.
;ey were a little lacking on the asphalt and concrete,
but all in all, a great package when you consider how
realistic they look.
