Redcat Racing Rampage XB 1/5 Scale 4wd Buggy w/30cc Gas Engine & 2.4GHz Radio (Green)
Chancerific - Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! Friday, February 15, 2013
UPDATE to my previous review: After running four tanks and having my fair share of fun with it after break-in, I absolutely love this vehicle. Fast, powerful, and loud. I still haven't had much opportunity to get a good tune on it and am currently still running a little rich until I've put another good tank through it for a full break-in. If there's any cons I can think of, it's the lack of a closed transmission/differential. There are gaps in the chassis, under the engine where dirt and small rocks could possibly get in and cause problems, but fortunately, running with the cover on can counter this. Besides that, my only qualm would be that the color the body came in was the blue color of the other XB on this site, rather than the green. That being said, expect a random color scheme. All in all, I'd give it a five, were it not for the small issue with the receiver battery as stated in my earlier review. Easy to tune, rips through dirt and tears away asphalt and takes whatever you throw at it, I can attest to the car's durability, having just finished an around-town run through every terrain this place has to offer. Small note on breaking-in out of the box: My model had a very erratic idle when I first started it up that was akin to an air leak. Throttle would go up, down, idle, and for the most part fluctuate randomly and occasionally dip low enough to die on me so I would have to get up and restart it. This problem continued through my third tank of break-in, until I realized that the choke lever was actually not locked in to the fully OPEN position, and was being thrown up and down from the vibrations of the engine. That being said, don't make my mistake and make countless calls to customer support about a damaged vehicle when it can very well be your choke, ha. Good luck, and happy bashing.
