PLEASE MAKE MORE UPGRADES AVAILABLE! Such a great idea for an RC car. if there were more upgrades available for the 1/16th scale model, I would buy them all. Unfortunately there's only 2 upgrades and I have them both. I would have given it a 5 star if there were more upgrades. Upgrades upgrades upgrades! Please make more available

    Comments about XMODS® Custom RC XMODS Custom RC 1:16 Scale Buggy Starter Kit:

    Honestly i was hesitant about buying this after the reviews for my 9 year old brother birthday. I'm glad i did. It is an amazing car. A lot more durable then i was expecting! I've drove it a bit and smashed it drove it off about 3 feet off the ground slammed nose first and just kept going. Put some soap and water down and do some often drifts and doughnuts. Its a blast! Only con i have is that the radio shack near me doesn't have the battery pack in stock. They offered to order it but its still nice to have all the parts to something in stock.

      Comments about XMODS® Custom RC XMODS Custom RC 1:16 Scale Buggy Starter Kit:

      This car is pretty good in terms of speed/handling, especially when you invest in the additional parts.

      The part that is surprising is the off-road capability. This car is fairly water-resistant. You can drive it in shallow puddles, snow, ice, mud (it gets very dirty very quickly), dirt, gravel, mulch, sand (it gets in the nooks and crannies), and grass that isn't taller than the wheels. The car will be virtually unphased. The car is a fairly large size and the turning circle isn't too great, so indoor driving isn't recommended. It has a 2.4 GHz radio system, which means no poke-your-eye-out super-long antenna on the car or the controller.

      I've only had one serious problem with the car, that is the steering glitched out and will no longer turn left or return to center. It will turn right, but it won't do anything else. The unfortunate thing is the warranty expired a few months ago, so I have to forfeit $60 for a new one (unless it is on sale, fortunately they usually are).

      I would recommend this for people who will be careful with the car. As other reviews mention, the car doesn't take crashes very well, the plastic parts can flex around with a finger's amount of force.

      Bought as a Christmas gift for my child. Just driving on the road, driveway, or grass the car has broke twice. I had to do a third exchange because of an electrical issue which prevented the car from turning. Very disappointed with this product.

      Comments about XMODS® Custom RC XMODS Custom RC 1:16 Scale Buggy Starter Kit:

      Front end should have been made of something stronger than cheap plastics. I hit a small rock in the middle of my street with my first one and broke the turning assembly in the first 30 minutes returned it got another one. had that one for 1week now the shock hanger is broke. mabe they should use something stronger like metal. just a suggestion who knows it just might last longer than a couple of minutes. days. In fact I have a radio shack rc that is 2years old I've jumped it I've hit curbs with it and guess what. it still works and nothing is broke on it and i only paid half of what Ipaid for this piece of junk.

        hey this car was great.. bought it for my 10 year old son.. this is the best rc car we have ever owned.. easy to switch out the parts. very fast, seems durable, good response. We raced this outside on our street and through the grass. Batteries lasted pretty long considering we used it for about a half hour at full speed, and didn't see any performance drop off. This was awesome. highly recommend.

        Comments about XMODS® Custom RC XMODS Custom RC 1:16 Scale Buggy Starter Kit:

        All my my nephews wanted for Christmas was a 4WD remote control car...

        This appears to be a great entry level to hobby cars, with interchangabel features and upgrades available within a reasonable price point. out of the box, the cars required some assembly which gave it the feel of building the car, although there was not much technical ability needed to complete. running on alkaline batteries meant that the car was able to be used as soon as it it was together, - no wait to charge the sucker up!

        Thus, my nephews and I headed out to the street to test them out. They performed well, easily going over small obstacles, and even getting a little bit of air going over the ramped curb. My brother and I were talking about getting cars for ourselves. until the crash...

        at relatively low speed, my nephews accidentally turned into each other, and collided head on, and the front end of one exploded...plastic parts all over the street. upon close inspection, the second car had also broken, just not as catastrophocally, however the failure was in the identical location.

        Radio Shack was great about the return, but in the long run, the durability was a let down...the loser gift of Christmas...
