I just finished this kit and must say that it would be a tough build for anyone who is inexperienced at building rc kits. The finished product is awesome, and the car drives very well. However, getting to that point may be difficult if you don't have some building experience. The biggest problem is the location of the pinion and how it sits in relation to the belt - out of the box the pinion gear rubs the front drive belt and causes excess amounts of drag and friction. In short, you have to find a motor that will fit in the lower two holes of the motor mount, lowering your motor so the pinion clears the belt. Some motors will fit this way, some will not. You also have to take great care when assembling the diffs and drivetrain. The rear diff case will rub the spur gear if you don't grind it down or shim it away from the spur. The belts can still be too tight if you overtighten the tops of the gear cases, you have to assemble them with great care. This kit was a lot of work for me, but the finished product is awesome. Again, this is not a kit for beginners but it can be a fun car if you are willing to work the bugs out. I am pleased with the outcome, despite the amount of work it took to get me there.
