    very impressed with this buggy

    I bought this as a replacement for my 15yo schumacher club10 for general mucking about in the woods with. so far had a handful of very demanding forest sessions and this thing is as tough as old boots. traction from the supplied rear tyres is superb on loose ground and it can climb >45deg muddy slopes with ease. i have fitted a higher rated motor than the supplied rs540sh (which gives pretty good performance for a cheap stock buggy) and so far the esc has not tripped out. buy with confidence. kit is very well designed and high quality materials are used throughout by the way.

    Brilliant RC kit thats fun to make and not to hard. Brilliant first kit, I know this as it was my first. Lowest price for this product that I have seen anywhere and is brilliant value for what you get in the box as it includes a good ESC and motor. Shipping was quick and very cheap as it was only £6 and arrived in a couple of days.

    Simply Awesome!

    My brother got a hornet for his birthday, and I wanted to join and race him, and bought the sand viper. Easier to put together than an airfix kit, this thing is sleek, fast, easy to control and a Joy to play with. I upgraded to the acoms racing pack and would recommend it. Charges in half an hour (and from the car too!) and you get around half an hour solid playtime out of one battery. I have a lot of RC stuff - tank, speedboat, cars, helicopter, and this beats them all hands down for pure fun factor.

    Sand Viper

    I bought this after discovering my old Tamiya Falcon in the loft. Wanted to return to my childhood but with a more modern car. Really pleased with the Sand Viper as it was easy to build and ideally suited to someone returning to RC cars after 25 years. The car was delivered quickly and well packaged, after a lot of research on the net Wonderland Models were the cheapest by some way. Really pleased with the service a would definitely recommend.
