We were watching the ads on TV since they came out. When I went to look for reviews, I was more than a little surprised at the RC magazine positive reviews. When I went to order it online thru Wal-Mart, I was disappointed and thought my odds of finding one in-store would be slim to none. Thankfully, I was wrong and bought 3 of the little cars. Come Christmas morning, Mom, Dad and son were all surprised to receive one (love the multiple radio channels offered for up to four cars running at a time.) Sadly, while it ran well here at the grandparents’ house, the cars couldn't handle the super textured walls at home. Told them they could bring it back over but they will play with them in the tub until their new home is finished with smooth walls for play! (Rats, thought Granddad and Grandma were going to get some wall time!) The batteries have held up well, even so, the parents are planning on buying some NiCad rechargeable. Overall, the six year old, and two thirty year olds are very happy with the little cars. They are a riot! Yes, you have to 'catch' them when going to stop them on the wall (duh! Suction stops, nothing to hold them there). Apparently, even for the grandson the steering wasn't a real problem because they were able to race then down the hall wall, turn and make the trip back within a short time of practicing with them. Don't buy just one! They are racing cars, ya know?
