I've had the RTR for around 6+ months now & think its great & haven't had any issues with it, I liked it that much that I also purchased & built the Yellow Edition as well. Like you should with any new buggy, no matter what brand, I hit it with threadlock & haven't lost any screws while driving it. The engine is great, good power & easy to tune & can easily have the Alpha turbo head button fitted for a little extra power if wanted, but as it is it goes real well. The radio gear & servo's have b[More…]

JQ has great technical support if anything goes wrong "not saying anything did." The car is really fast, handles well, and i took it to the track here i Kansas and won the Intermediate class race! It can be upgraded with anything from the original cars and one thing thats always a must is fuel filer and new tires. Other then that this car has been perfect!

I really like this car. I am surprised by how nice the RTR Alpha engine is. It was a breeze to start and break in and has sufficient power for all my needs. It handles very well and it's a pleasure to drive. And the support from JQ company is top notch. I'm really happy I bought it!. If you buy one watch out for the four top engine mounting screws. There were not factory thread locked and came loose, so before you start remember to secure them.

Excellent buggy for the price. The engine, servos, and tires really seem like they are a notch above other rtr Buggies(didn't use the radio). The engine in particular is superb and is the easiest to start and tune nitro engine I've ever had. It's also taken a lot of abuse without any breaking any parts.

This is a great buggy. I typically race 1/10 off road and typically build full race kits. I wanted to get an 1/8 scale nitro buggy for fun and this buggy is fun. Because I like race cars, I have upgraded a lot on this car but the fundamentals are all there out of the box. I would only recommend that you give it a good once over with thread lock. I neglected to hit the screws on the front steering knuckles with thread lock and one of them came apart during a good bash session. I lost one of the b[More…]

There is no better deal than this! Best RTR on the market right now. I've had this buggy for about 8 months and I haven't broken a single thing. It gets bashed on-road, off-road and on the track and it doesn't quit. Best RTR motor available that delivers plenty of punch where you need it. I would defiantly recommend this buggy to anyone looking to get into the sport. All the parts from the pro-kit fit and can slowly be upgraded as your budget allows you. Also, remember even if it's RTR, you shou[More…]

I recently bought this, and i have to say I am impressed. I have had many RTR's in my day but nothing compared to this, of course its still not a kit and going to need some upgrades but that comes with any RTR. The durability and performance of this car is fantastic and for the price you can't beat it. I would recommend looking in the manual and seeing what screws need lock tight and lock tight them right away (I had some issues with screws coming loose, but nothing a little lock tight couldn't [More…]

Great buggy i must say, Nice and easy to work-on, motor was easy to tune and goes really well.. Overall out of the box handling was very good..(cant comment on the electrics as i upgraded mine straight away).. One of the Best RTR 1/8 buggy's on the Market IMO and with the added great backup service from JQ Products it's hard not to like this Buggy & id definitly recommend it..
Brian Romo - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Sunday, October 07, 2012
This RTR rocks.It is the perfect first 1/8 scale buggy.The "Car" RTR is built tough and the alpha .21 is very fast and reliable.Savox servos are included with the RTR.I truly believe for the price you can not beat it.

So far so good with this buggy just finished breaking the motor in and no problems. Went over the buggy with thread lock as soon as opened it and half the car was already done from the factory which is great. The manual is really nice and the included quick start guide is easy to understand. They also included with the quick start a great reference guide with part # on which parts are the same as the pro kit version, and gives you the parts needed to upgrade to the pro version. I recommend havin[More…]
