I respectfully disagree and believe the big squid review was fake. We have put a total of 30 minutes of relativly light field only running on it, no offrading or bashing. Result = broken rear axle and mount. Sorry but in my specific case this is a $1000 pos and a bogey. I should have taken the advice of a few others but I bought into the last two months of horizons marketing. Better luck to others out there but I didn't plan to get into buying parts this quick! And no...I own quite a few rc vehicles and truth be told they all require maintenance but not this much this soon. Again very disappointed and there is simply no way this is a strong vehicle now that we tested it...baby tested it at that. I agree now with others that this truck is total garbage.
