What We Like:
This car looks amazingly complex (compared to some of the other rides) but also quite a bit more durable. There’s a TON of features, one of the coolest is the floating rear body mount. We’re even diggin’ the wheelie bar and battery mounting system!

What We’re Not Sure About:
I would say the price but, seeing how most of the other premiere cars on the market are close to this price AND seem to be a lot more simple, this seems like a reasonable cost. Still on the high end of the scale though.
