Very well built. Heavy and powerful. Easy to work on. Amazing detail. Does not come with a drivers seat. I put a gopro camera in where the seat should be. Shipping was faster than I was expecting. Thank you RC4WD for making these available in the United States. The only real negative I can say is these things are totally addictive and your going to want them all!
