Looks like a good deal. What makes you think it is the old version?

Great deal. One of the questions in the Q&A section states that this is the FS-53910 model which has the brushed motor. Only the version with the US plug is currently in stock though.

Later in the results you see an almost identical one but it's about £200+, it has a different model number that when you Google it goes on about waterproofing and slip diffs etc. Also the ESC? or Radio cover looks different (no wire coming out of the top)

Just get a nitro car. A proper rc car.

I picked up a second hand (£100) one that had been upgraded. Something about brushless, suspension and diffs. I don't really know about them, I just bought it for me and my kids to have some fun with...
It's very quick and hard for the kids to control. They are getting better at it and love every moment.
You will need a few more batteries to make it worth while taking out.
Like I did say, I don't know much about these so this is more of a comment from a noob :)

Nitro just sounds good, brushless electric can't be matched for speed and torque. Same with the Tesla situation, a tesla p100d can outperform supercars

5000mah battery and 1800mah battery What?

if it has 2 batteries, one will be for transmitter, one for car
#14
Is this just a case of buying a US to UK adapter? And could someone advise if Gearbest are reputable please.
#15
looks great! I've just placed an order, wasn't looking for one but used to have a few cars as a kid. this'll bring back memories.

I bought my current phone from them and more than happy with the service. Even when I had an issue the support was great albeit a message a day so not particularly quick.
#17
Only online retailer where you enter a discount code and the price more than doubles. oO
#18
Looks good. i assume remote control unit comes with this?

I went with one of these for £54.00 off fleabay

wacked in a more powerful s2 battery and it really does fly.
plastics really good so durable.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/282274692707
takes a beating, its 1/12 but imo well worth it, it cocks a front wheel up on acceleration also, and power difts, check the vids. a more powerful battery for £8 just makes this serious fun.
even has a 540 motor same as he hornet mentioned below.

BAD company to order from.
They spend ages processing orders and then when they do send them out you're even lucky if you receive it.
My first order never turned up and I mistakenly decided to try them again, wish I hadn't, because a week after placing the order its still processing.
#24
I have grave digger from tyco, its 1:6 scale but without transmitter or battery, honestly i can't even test if it works. What should i do to it ? How much should i sell it for if worth anything

Bullocks. I've ordered plenty of stuff from them and never had a problem, everything is tracked. Pay with PayPal if you're worried about stuff not turning up.

Granted you don't get a realistic guarantee but I'm happy for that given the brilliant prices, and not had a 'quality' issue with anything I've bought. (Phones, torches, RC models).

Oh that is amazing. Just tried to find a Terra Scorcher but no joy!
#27
I ordered twice from them without a problem, but then on the third time they sent me a DOA item. When raising this with them they offered me just 10% of the value of the item to just go away. After raising a case with Paypal, I finally go the original cost refunded (5 months later!) and this was minus the cost of sending it back to China recorded delivery. Everything that people say about Gearbest is true. Do yourself a favour and avoid them.

Mines arrived, seems the charger has gone pop already :( got warm when charging the battery which is the norm I think unplugged it and put the other battery on overnight and its stone cold and showing 4.8V as is the charger output, it does come with 2 batteries for the car, one is a 3600mah and the other a plane one with nothing on it at all. Will buy a cheapish charger off amazon or similar to see whats what. The car itself seems pretty decent quality for the money and certainly good enough for my sons birthday :)

Got mine too, though possibly the charger is duff too because the car struggles to move or steer despite being on charge for a day.

Great car though so am gonna persevere. :)

mine arrived yesterday. likewise the charger on mine seems to be faulty but I've bought a better one from Amazon along with a lipo battery. hopefully will be good now. car otherwise looks great and appears well built.

I didn't realise you could put a lipo battery in, can you show what you bought?
#32
yeah you can upgrade to lipo. there's some videos on YouTube about this car upgraded to lipo. apparently 2s lipo is fine but 3s can make to motor burn out. I went for this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B06Y5HWZ86/ref=mp_s_a_1_36?ie=UTF8&qid=1495144711&sr=8-36&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=2s+lipo+battery

and to charge it I bought an IMAX b6. I'm just waiting for some deans connectors to come tomorrow so I can try my lipo battery. on the ESC there's a jumper to set it up for a lipo battery so just be sure to change that and should run great.

The issue with the supplied charger is that it's 120V, so when it receives 240V it doesn't like it and outputs 4.8V. No Biggie as it's only a trickle charger and Gearbest gave me a couple of dollars back. :)

For now until I get some proper dual channel charger/discharger with display I've just bought a SkyRC eN3 one.

Overall I'm, err I mean the Son, is very happy indeed with it. ;)

Will do tomorrow, look on YouTube (something like Aussie RC) there's some dude who's put a 4s Lipo setup in, looks a bit too wild for me (flips over with the power) but another video shows 3d and looks great.

Ah I never thought of the 120v bit, but even so mine was on over night and nothing in the battery at all
#36
quick question, on the lipo batteries why are there two leads? I'm guessing some adapter needed to connect to the car but wonder what the other is for?

the other one is for charging. it lets the charger check voltages of individual cells and keep them all balanced.

Any idea on what mAh rating I should be getting?
#39
higher the mah the longer the car runs so I went for the 5200 which makes it go for about half an hour.

Think my next purchase is this brushless motor and 60A ESC combo for it:
