    These little cars are awesome! I bought the drift and touring cars and they are fast! I did also purchase some rubber tires and aluminum wheels for the drift car because I enjoy touring cars more. This way my son and I can race as well. Very well made, aluminum chassis and they handle surprisingly well for this size of car.

    This is a fantastic little car for the money, and it definitely has the potential to beat the Kyosho Mini-Z on the track if you follow Beaver Hobby on YouTube. You need to watch the eight videos that Beaver Hobby has made just for this chassis . The car is a solid performer after some tuning is done to the chassis with guidance from Beaver Hobby's youtube channel. Don't let the tuning of the chassis deter you from buying this. Any chassis needs tuning right out of the box to go racing and be competitive. I bought a tamiya TA-07 pro, and it needed lots of tuning and even some upgrades. The K969 and K989 are phenomenal cars for racing in the 1/28th scale racing series against the Mini-Z. The car also comes with everything you need to be a ready to run chassis. My package arrived in under two weeks, and I live in the United States, in Wisconsin.... and it came straight from China. All packages were disinfected before it left.

    Nice looking, fast car. Generally speaking you get what you pay for. I broke one of the rear drive shafts after about 15 minutes, due to a combination of sheer speed, a small floor rug induced jump, soft tyres (on mini Q3 wheels, they fit) and the cars locked differentials. No big problem as I have the original shafts from my fully upgraded sinohobby mini Q3 going spare, which now has alloy shafts. So I used those. You could buy some mini Q3 shafts from Banggood or use alloy shafts for a mini z awd and put wire insulation packers into the diff cups, as I have. The wheels (needs tyres) and drive shafts from sinohobby mini Q3 fit this car. Hope this helps anyone with similar problems.

    These cars are seriously impressive for the price. I don’t care for the stock hard plastic drift tires though. If you are considering ordering one you won’t be disappointed. Plenty of replacement parts as well as upgrades. The radio is better than what it could have been for this price range. I actually like the buttons for steering trim instead of a potentiometer. These are easy to trim and the wheels seem to stay aligned well. They are fast so a large empty floor is ideal unless you are drifting. I used to drive RadioShack Xmods years and years ago and I’ve been wanting something comparable to them and these are a great option if you don’t want to pay for a Mini Z and you can make them look like one. There are loads of videos on upgrades and mods as well. Their popularity makes them a great choice because there’s a lot of support online.

    This small RC car is absolutely amazing. I will recommend to everyone who would like to start with RC drifting, do not would like to send 100+ USD and have small place for play. The build quality is stuning for this money. There are a lots of original upgrade parts available and there is also possible to use parts from same scale cars. You can also upgrade this smal beast with brushless motor and needed electronics. I enjoyed a ton of fun with this small guy :-)

    Really nice car, after i had enough of drifting i converted it to normal RC grip tires, I put around the hard wheels the buggy tires so now it get a really nice grip. Also the servo arm has 2 positions i was on the lower hole, i changed for use the upper hole and now the car has a much more tied turn angle that give better maneuverability. I also adapted the 1100 mah battery from the A959 Rc Car 1/18 who give a crazy run time compared to the 400 mah. Here below the link for the tires if you want to get grip and turn it to a normal RC car : http://www.banggood.com/WLtoys-K989-53-128-Buggy-Rally-Tire-27_58_5-p-1018504.html

    Straight out of the box this is an amazing product, no problems at all works like a charm. I would recommend this to any beginner - medium skilled people. Materials used are very good quality and plus the additional spare parts and adjustable components make this perfect. With a quick look I could see that it could be upgraded easily. And not to mention this car is fast! very responsive, had one issue when I tried to reverse and steer at the same time (forward works fine) but other than that i give this a product a 10/10. Thankyou and I hope anyone looking into buying this i hop this helps, this product is a no brainer. You wont regret it.
