This thing has real speed. It can go over 70 mph. it can go faster than most nitro rc and its water proof so all you mudders will be happy with how it does in the mud I encourage you to buy this vehicle.
I have this VXL and ill tell you it is fast right out of the box.I have since hopped it up with after market hopups from Intergy and RPM.If you want to try LI-Po use a Trinity 3s20c lipo Battery 11.1V 8000+mAh . The VXL will need to be Geared with a 31T pinion 76TSpur from RPM.Have fun and Drive safe
