cool nice buggy i love it
Great RC car. Insane acceleration. Great at jumpsVon lukas4654 August 27, 2013
I have had this car for about 2 mouths now and I have had this car going 43mph i don't know where they got 50mph from... but the battery life is amazing so 43mph and a long play time isn't bad at all. this RC car is also very good at big jumps if the have the skill to land them well, i have had mine jump 6ft high =) All in all I give this car 4 out of 5 because of some little problems i have had with spare parts and cogs getting shredded because of this cars insane amount of torque. A great piece of kit and a hole lot of fun.

I am a newby to RC cars . I decided not to go for an "entry level" buggy but rather opted for the WereWolf which looked pretty darn smart! I don't regret that decision as this buggy is awsome fun and amazingly fast. Perhaps rather faster than my reactions!
Anyone thinking about this buggy should better go for the Pro version and not the standard... The buggy is well built and pretty sturdy (especially when you compare it to similar priced models in many model shops) BUT it is not indestructible and the standard version has a problem with the front wheel drive shafts popping out of their wheel mountings on hard lock causing damage to the buggy - in my case to the cogs in the front differential. I've replaced my shafts with the pro's upraded CVB version and this is completely solved. The other slight weakness is the exposed design of the front shocks and shock mountings with almost naff all for a bumper. I've just destroyed the shock on one side by hitting a fence post just a little too hard. Again the standard version comes with plastic shocks. Maybe the pro's aluminium shocks would have been stronger. Happily Nitrotek do seem to have all the spare parts (or can get them) which you should factor in to your purchase as I don't think I'll be the only one needing bits from time to time.
I saw a few reviews suggesting that the wheel nuts come loose quickly. No joke. You need to tighten these much more than they come in the box. Maybe even use some threadlock. And you need to carry around some essential tools to tighten up a number of the fixings after a bit of racing or you'll end up searching in the grass for ages!
Despite a few niggles, you can't really have much more fun with a buggy than this. It surpassed my expectations, anway. I've had so may people look on in amazement as you hit the throttle and the thing takes off at incredible speed. Do the same on a gravel track and you can have that back end sliding round to do impressive 180 degree turns or incredible doughnuts! Just wish the battery lasted a bit longer.
Anyway, well done Nitrotek. You've made a middle-aged man feel like a boy again!
