I originally got this as a birthday gift for my daughter, but of course, mom had to play first. I took it out of the box and that is when it became my Camaro. I can't afford a car like this in real life so this is the one I have to drive for now. It handles pretty well for an RC car. The charger is USB which is great, I can charge it on my laptop or plug it into the accessory plug in my car. The remote is shape like a mini Xbox controller so it's comfortable and the toggles are easy enough to steer. I'm still debating whether to put this back in the box for my daughter or if I'm going to get her a different present because I am now hooked.

My new sports car
This car was built with quality parts. The USB charging function is great! It's definitely full function. Absolutely love this camaro! Would definitely recommend!
Lots of Fun!
This New Bright Chargers Corvette Grand Sport remote control car is a lot of fun. My husband and sons were huge fans. New bright is a great brand, we have had previous remote control vehicles by New Bright and they have always been good quality. This Corvette Grand Sport is the best remote control car we have ever had. My favorite feature on this one that I have never seen on a remote control toy is this one has an internal battery that you charge via a USB cord which is included. I really like that way if charging better than most other remote control toys that have the large battery that you have to plug into the wall. This USB way of charging us a lot less hassle. I also look the detail on this corvette. The body is metallic charcoal gray color & it has stickers and every little detail down to the door handles and lights. The tires are very cool with wheels and rubber tires. They really pulled out all the stops with this toy. The remote control is very easy to use and smaller in size so fits well in child's hand as well as adult. The car reacts well to the remote control and is easy to turn and stop. It also has quite a bit of speed! I would definitely recommend this for any one that is young at heart. It's a lot of fun!

New Bright 1:12 RC Chargers Camaro SS - Red
Absolutely love the speed of this remote control car!! This car is so fast!
The style – Charged Camaro in Red is an eye catcher. This car comes in other models/colors.
The car is built on a great concept of using an USB cord for charging, not installation of batteries. Like a Tesla car, just smaller scale. The car does have an internal battery which cannot be removed once the battery has gone through its shelf life. It is important to read the manual for charging. The charger car is made out of very lightweight plastic and drifts on turns going at a high speed.
Little fast/furious action here…
Opinion: It would be nice to have lights or a horn installed on this model. It would add to the effect of the charger.
The charger car has an off/on switch. Must be in off mode for charging.
The hand held remote control does not have an off/on switch. The remote control is always on and uses batteries.
Overall a nice super-fast remote control car. My kids love it.

Good remote control car
Good remote control car my son loves it. It's a good size as well and the quality is great as well. The god thing is you charge it with the us. It don't need better you charge it with the usb cord which is easier
Fast and super fun!
The car is fast and super fun! My boy had no problem with the remote, he loves his red camaro! This is a hit and has held up well. The best toy ever! Ready to use, so easy to charge and no extra parts to care about! The best. The charge holds perfectly well and by the way car took too many bumps into the wall and still runs!
Runs great, but exterior looks cheap!
First, some stats. Car is 15 1/2" long, 6" wide, and 5" tall.
Exterior is lightweight plastic. Headlights, license plates, and so forth are stickers instead of functioning lights. Doors do not open. The inside is not visible because the "windows" are black. Tires seem to have good tread, however.
The good thing about all that, is that my ten-year-old son felt free to really put this car through its paces outside (he would have been more careful with a more high quality car) - run it through puddles, ram it into walls, drive it on gravel and concrete, etc. Does not drive on grass, as you might expect.
From photos, you can see that the car will get beat up if used outside.
But, the "engine" is pretty powerful! After a full charge (90 minutes), the car consistently ran for 40 minutes. And it's fairly fast - my son could jog alongside it. However, the range is long. He could run it from several hundred feet away.
My son was pleased that he could make this car "drift" and spin.
It drives fairly straight and turns sharply; however, if it gets out of alignment, wheels can be adjusted by turning the little red knob on the bottom of the car, by the front axel.
Back to the process of charging: simply remove the charger lid on the bottom of the car and plug in the attached 15" USB cable to computer or USB charging device. There is an on/off switch on the bottom of the car.
Remote control came with two AA batteries, not rechargeable. Remote is very simple to operate. Two mini joysticks: left controls front and backward motion, and right controls turning. No antenna, but still seems to have a good range. No on/off switch on the remote, but it does connect within a few seconds of turning on the car.
Altogether, a great toy! Just don't expect much from the exterior. Ours is looking pretty dinged up after a few weeks of regular play.
Fun Toy - Very Lightweight
This is a great looking, fun toy to play around with. It drives great, even on carpet in the house. Charging is easy with the provided micro USB cord and the remote is easy to use. It is, unfortunately, very lightweight and I would never take it outside for fear of crashing it into a curb or anything hard at full speed. Even bumping into furniture, the stickers and corner received some damage. The outer body is a really thin lightweight plastic and I don't think it would withstand a heavy hit. Keep it inside and you'll have fun scaring the cats.
I know that I could never be wrong with a remote controlled car, they are always fun! This one even more the camaro style stands out and with the red color even more so! Easy to use for hours of fun.
Good Toy Car
It was fun to play with. The controller is light with a really simple two button function for going forward and reversing. You can try cool moves with it. If it had breaks instead of a reverse button it could make an awesome turns. It has an ion charging time it needs to charge for an hour but the power runs out fast. The car drives at a good speed and is good for kids and indoor use.
