This is my first experience with this type of car, I was very impressed with the quality of the parts in the kit. It is a very easy and fast build due its simplicity and low parts count. The kit comes with fulll bearings and stock motor which provides more than enough scoot to satisfy me. I built it using the optional oil dampner, aluminum motor heat sink, a Futaba magnum junior and an old Novak 410-m5 esc. It requires a very flat area to run due to limited ground clearence, but it is a simple direct drive so run times are amazing, I used 3000mah packs and was running for nearly 30-40 minutes. The car takes some getting used after driving 4wd touring cars but it is actually more fun as it offers an added challenge and teaches throttle discipline. Overall I enjoy this car and have had no problems in a few hours of running it besides worn down tires.
