Reasonable bundle, not great, not bad.
Some of the reviews look like they are for ACOMS kit which is old as this kit is now a predominantly Carson kit. As a starter kit, it seems reasonable, the trouble is I can see myself growing tired of it pretty quickly. The one piece which seems high end is the fast charger which is brilliant. The controller itself does the job it should, but seems less solidly put together than an ACOMS I had years ago. Screwing in the battery cover and the screw (with very light pressure) ripped through the thread and took a fair amount of jiggling to finally remove so now I have a battery cover which isn't screwed down :/ The controller also feels a bit cheaply put together. I also bought a spare higher capacity battery and glad I did. Having 2 batteries and the fast charger is great. The charger also has a car cigarette lighter adaptor. It gets pretty warm while fast charging but not dangerously so and does a very good job of charging quickly. Receiver and servo seem good, fitted a Tamiya Super Hotshot with no problems. If making the decision again, I'd probably purchase just the charger on its own with separate batteries and controller (both higher end than come with this kit). Don't get me wrong, it does the job but the controller just puts me off as it doesn't feel great in the hand.

Well worth the extra for the fast charger
Since finishing the build and using my RC car I'm really happy I went with the faster charger bundle, I would be going insane now if I had to wait hours between playing. Acoms gear works great, no problems at all.

Glad that I paid the extra for the quick charger - charging in 30 minutes or so is so much better than overnight (especially with 3 kids wanting play - me plus my boys !!)

a very good kit
This kit is very good. I incorporated it in a Lancer Evo X from this site and they work well together, don't bother with the little battery box unless your ESC does not have a dedicated connection, the range is great. I haven't gone beyond it, the transmitter feels of quality and has trim adjustments and reversible controls. The servos are powerfull but not to sluggish, I found that I have to have my accelerator trim all they way down, which means no more adjustment, it all comes in two nice boxes and is well packed.

Good Value for Money, but Cheap
This buy was good value for money, but it's a very cheap product. You get what you pay for. Technically speaking, it works perfectly and has all the functionality a simple hobbiest would need, but it's not a nice piece of hardware to look down at. In summary, it looks and feels cheap, but does the job.

I bought this with the Tamiya Rising Fighter kit. This works perfectly with the car and the controller is great. In my mind it's worth paying the extra for this package with the fast charger. I got the best part of an hour of non-stop driving around a forest out of the battery before it needed charging.

Comprehensive package but tricky to programme
Bought this package with my Neo Figthter which comes with the fast charger and everything you'll need to get the car working. The new speed controller does let the package down as it comes set in brushless mode, so needs re-setting if you have a brushed motor. It is also not easy to programme as the plastic cover is too thick for you to press the set button. Recommend removing the cover and using a screw driver to push the set button down with as it still does not like to be pressed with your finger (thats what I used anyway). Even after 8 attempts to programme it still would not make the car go into reverse and bleeped twice when turning on to say the programme was not completed successfully, even though every attempt seemed to complete ok. In the end the very helpful staff at Wonderland suggested I post it back to them so they could try. Which they did succesfully! Obviously it was me, but I still dont know where I went wrong. The items were returned quickly and everythig now works fine. Thanks to Wonderland for their help and assistance!

Good good good
All good really, esc I was supplied with our car is different from how They used to be and I had to look online to see how to connect it all up as it's not clear in instructions but easy enough to find online.
