These are small and quick and fun !

They are great but overall must initially say that they are Lightweight and won't take being pulled around.
The car will not take being trodden on.
They will not, i suspect ,last long if you let the kids charge them up without supervision ( Mine are 5 and 8 )
I made sure that I took them out of the packaging and set up, as ham fisted treatment "straight out of the box" would leave a wheel behind..

Charging is by way of a cable from a battery pack which has a small "fiddly" connector that must be put into a small fiddly socket on the top of the car. To access the port you have to take the cover off each time . The cover is secured with some pretty grippy Velco and I think that repeated uses will cause the body shell cover to stress facture.. I'm going to trim the body shell so that it will not require this process. ( Have uploaded a picture showing the charging port and scale )
Batteries 4 x AA and 2 x AAA are required

The Charging process as discussed has its drawbacks but have to commend that if you follow the instructions :
Turn off car
Insure that the Charging lead is orientated the correct way.. have a good look or its game over..
Then press the charging button on the battery pack ... A green LED flashes whilst charging and then goes constant when ready to race a nice touch I think ..

Now lets address the lightweight construction.. This does not make it flimsy for purpose just potentially delicate when handled. But when put to purpose the construction is adequate to take signigicant crashes and yet light enough for these puppies to fly .. Literally.

They really are agile and quick, really quick . I have a sunlounge 5m by 2.5m and the tiles are pretty smooth.

Every bit as good as it is advertised, I'm happy to recommend it.
It is very fast even on carpet, as it says it has another slightly slower speed setting and I'm not sure how common it is nowdays but the throttle is adjustable meaning its like a leaver rather than a button so you can control the speed how you like in theory (in practise you normally go too fast and crash :) ) Also the little self righting mechanism does work and helps to protect it. And the controller is very nice to use.
I havent had it long enough to review the durability but its been bouncing around a lot including in a bath tub and its still fine.

I bought one of these for my 8yo son's birthday as he had seen the adverts on TV. It has become his all time favourite toy over the last 2 months. The car is small, and compact, ideal for racing around indoors. The car has been used nearly every day, no parts have broken, and the RC skills he has acquired have been so impressive he is after a Tamiya RC car from Santa to race outside.

The car is very popular in Japan, it has been designed by one of the leading Pro RC car designers at Yokomo and this helps make you realise why it is miles above the standard of the average toy RC car.

The car lasts a good 10minutes from every charge, which only takes 15-20 mins. The cars controller uses 2.4ghz, not infa-red or 27/40 mhz like most childs cars. So his friends can come over and race their cars all together.

The steering is digital, either straight forward, Full left or Full right. The throttle is digital proportional like professional RC cars. So the control of the throttle becomes crucial to control the rate of turn of the car.

The speed is amazing, faster than any TOY rc car available, even much bigger ones that cost £80 in Tescos.

Overall a fantastic car, very fast, very tough and incredible fun.. infact so good I had to treat myself to one.

The only maintenance I have ever done is to get hairs out of the axles with a pair of tweezers, as they can cog up in the front wheels and stop the car running straight. You can check by just spinning the front wheels, if they spin freely you are ok, if they dont, just pull out the hairs and spin the wheels. It takes about 2 mins and it hasnt happened very often over the last few weeks.

A would recommend this car to anyone that lives near a park or just wants to have fun driving it around their home.it arrived before the due date and came well packaged, the only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was because the hairs on my carpet get stuck round the wheels which means it goes a lot slower but overall a fantastic buy for only £9

For £11.99 don't expect a smooth ride as you won't get it. However I have had fun with this with my 14 month old son (and cats) chasing it round the house.
The only reason I've knock 2 stars off is that cat hair got wrapped around the wheels and it is impossible to remove the wheels to remove it. With that it's sluggish to the point I have stopped using it.

For £30 you can have just as much fun with the GX BUGGY than with a rc car that costs £200. This little car is sooooo fast! And the only way you could really damage it is if you where to tred on it. I will be getting 2 more of these babies for my boots!

For the money I was sceptical but this is a really fun little car. It fits in the palm of your hand and goes like a (RACIST JOKE INCOMING) mexican with 5 kilo's of coke in the trunk with 6 border patrol cars after him. Charge takes 20 minutes and the charger takes 4 AA batteries, don't reccomend hard wood floors for this because it spins outta controll when you put your finger down.
