I am pretty seasoned when it comes to RC and I've had my fair share of kits. Currently run a TLR 22 and some F1 cars with a club who runs an indoor carpet track. I bought this truck to bash with the kids outside - my cars are setup for carpet racing and I have a lot of money in them. I needed something that I could allow the kids to run and not be pulling out my hair when they'd crash or drop the transmitter. I can honestly say that the RTR version of the T4.2 is junk. The radio and the electronics included with it are terrible. The Radio should have been binded out of the box. The truck is really twitchy and the light on the radio was blinking (supposed to be solid green). Figured it couldn't have been binded correctly. Tried binding it for at least an hour... no luck. The reverse on the speed controller is supposed to be a two stage, kicking in only after the pulse from the brake is gone. It may activate once every 10 flips of the radio trigger. The slipper clutch was shipped to ridicuolusly loose. Couldn't even drive it on the carpet without it slipping so much that is constantly whined. You should be able to hold the back tires while applying throttle and have the front tires life off the table an inch or two. That's how I have my Losi cars set up. No such luck... the adjustment nut is fully screwed in and I'm still slipping far too much... UGH. Really frustrating for a brand new item. If you absolutely have to have the T4.2 buy in in a kit version and purchase your own electronics. The RTR's slipper is terrible and the electronics are worthless - opt for the Team version or buy a 22T.
