I was not expecting a lot for the price I was paying($21.66 at the time). This R/C has got to be one of the best values going in its market. Worth double the price I paid. I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon and this rates near the top of my best buys. I bought 3 of these at Christmas, one for me(52 yrs old) and 2 for potential son in laws(both in mid 20’s). Just something fun for Christmas day I thought. The ad said colors may vary and I received 2 red cars and one blue, so that was great. All 3 cars have been run multiple times without any issues so far. They climb like crazy, much better than I expected. Each wheel has independent suspension. No throttle/speed control. You are either going full speed or stopped, same for both forward and reverse, but for the price I can’t complain too much. These cars aren’t really fast but they’re meant for climbing and obstacle courses so to me the speed seems correct. We have a habit of turning obstacle course racing into crash derbies trying to flip each other over. There’s a lot of running into each other and even rolling over each other. Lots of abuse but they’re still going strong. They all ran on regular Kirkland batteries for about 45 minutes before a noticeable power drop. We get a little longer out of the rechargeable batteries. I recommend Amazon Basics rechargeable batteries. 6 stars for these cars if I could. Highly recommended! Amazon was great to buy from as usual…
FANTASTIC R/C Car for Kids!!
The Rock Crawler Extreme is FANTASTIC. My 7 year-old LOVES it. I chose this one from a list of highly-rated cars because it’s max speed isn’t too fast for a kid to handle. It can also drive over obstacles that I wouldn’t have thought were possible! My kids have a great time building new obstacles for it with pillows and toys and seeing what it can get over. I love it too!
Not Fast but Is a Great Off Roader!
I was looking for an RC car that would be easy to operate, run for a decent amount of time and most importantly, be able to handle our irregular sidewalks and go on grass for my 6yr old. Well I’m glad I bought this. It’s great. I was pleasantly surprised how long it ran before needing new batteries, although I will swtich to rechargeables now. I think it lasted a solid day & a half’s worth, which might seem short but it was many runs. And since it is battery operated, no time wasted to charge and definitely way longer playing time than what a normal charge will allow. It’s easy & straightforward to use the controller. And IT DOES GO OFF ROAD! Went on grass, uneven sidewalks, dirt, carpet, sand at a beach, up pillows and various inclines, even went down stairs (they were low rise with wide tread).
For the price this is a great little RC car.
For the price this is a great little RC car. I ended up getting it for $24.99. It’s 4 wheel drive, so there is a motor for both the front and back wheels. The wheels are big so I don’t foresee this car getting stuck on anything that I would be driving it through. I bought it mostly for driving around in the house. It’s winter, and I was looking for a fun way to chase my son around the house. In the spring/summer I’ll be chasing him around the park, and our block with this little car.
Great little RC car
Great little RC car. Ours is blue, and even though they do say you are going to get a random color, I was happy to see it once it arrived. The body is a very light weight plastic, probably done to reduct weight, as I am sure the motors are not that powerful. My son is 5 and can operate the trigger style controller right out of the box. There are 3 frequencies you can set it to, in case there are other RC cars in the area or if you are planning on getting more than one. It is a little louder than I expected, but considering it’s an RC car, I knew it wasn’t designed to be whisper quiet. It has decent speed and can turn rather well. For teh $25 I paid for it, I would say it is totally worth it for little kids.
I didn’t expect much, but was very impressed
This thing is not going to win a speed competition but what it will do is climb over any obstacle within reason. I bought this as a last minute gift for Christmas and didn’t want to spend too much for an R/C truck. I quickly read the description, looked at the curve of reviews and ordered. When we got it and put batteries in it I quickly realized how good it was.
Maisto R/C Rock Crawler delivers!
I bought two for Christmas. These are pretty cool and my family had lot of fun with them. The crawler is pretty big – about 12 inches long.
For 35$ a great buy. I purchased two for my 3 and …
For 35$ a great buy. I purchased two for my 3 and 5 year olds. They are simple to drive. Both of them picked it up quick. Months after Christmas they are still running great. They have good tourque, climbing small hills, rocks, and roots through the woods. They flip constantly when my boys use them and have had relatively no issues. I’ve had to strip and solder the entennas back on to the remotes, but those are minor things. Suggestions:
OK for the price
This is our second Crawler. The first one lasted about 1.5 years. The issue is with rollovers, the antenna eventually bends and breaks. That being said, the boys still like the car and we bought a second one after the first was nearly non-functional. Just be aware, this is crawler so the speed is comparatively slow. If you want something fast, this will disappoint. If you want to run through dirt and climb rock and parking blocks, this works well.
