I got this beautiful Pontiac GTO at my local Walmart only 2 days ago. My first impression was that the RC vehicle looked great straight out of the box. It had easy assembly, you only had to apply two AA batteries in the controller, and 5 in the car. You did not need a screw driver. Then, you slip on the antenna tubes and you're ready to use this bad boy. I immediately noticed that this car was a little on the fast side... for the first 10 minutes. It starts getting slower and slower as the batteries lose power. Also, the turn radius is very large, you need to start turning about 10 feet before the turn. One of the biggest things I hated, was that there is no multiple-channel system. A kid across the street is always out using his New Bright RC car, and because it has only 1 channel, his controller can control my car, and mine can control his, so only one of us can use it at once, unless we are 50 feet away (the radio's distance) Now, I'll get to the cons and pros. Pros: Great body and stickers
Decent battery life, I got an hour of use, with breaks in between.
Fast at first
Nice slick and squishy wheels for off-roading
50 feet radio signal distance Cons: Huge turn radius
Starts losing speed after 10 minutes of it in motion
No suspension, what so ever
One 49 Mhz controller can control as many 49 Mhz cars at once as you want My final thoughts were that this is a great beginner car for a toy-grade RC driver.
