Excellent remote control car, works in water and will handle most terrain. Got my son one a couple of years ago and he loves it. Price new is £47, but there is a amazon warehouse on at only £19.45. Got to be worth a punt.

I have purchased a few amazon warehouse items, and most are just damaged packaging.

I wasn't so impressed.
Even though the tyres look like they have great tread they are smooth plastic so they don't grip anything, wet or dry.
The battery doesn't last long at all and the tank type controls are terrible for kids. You control both left wheels forward or back and both right. I struggled with them.
Lastly, when does This ever get used on water. The short answer is never.

purxhased. reviews say otherwise to comment above. looking for a cheap rc for a while that doesnt mind getting wet and is 4x4 as our 2wd is poo

We have a stream nearby, and it works well in it. So we are obviously the exception to the rule.

Deal is expired, but It is still available, just gone up to £20.42.

Strange thing is that my comment pretty much was a review. So your dismissing my review because reviews say otherwise. You'll find out when you get it.

And just to add, it's not 4x4 n the conventional sense. Only drives all 4 wheels when going in a straight line. hence the tank controls.

My son enjoys this but the car itself chews through batteries, even the 'good' ones.
