Fast enough to slide on wooden floor, slower but practicable on the carpet.
Lengh run is around 2mn, and charge is arround 45s. But I have more speed if I charge only 20s. Don't ask me why.
I found mine on a street market for 12 euros.... :)
It's full control (4 ways), I love mine :)

I received two of these as a gift after I subscribed to a CG magazine. But after a bit of racing the novelty had worn off and when I moved house just recently I parked them in the garbage.

I second that vote! I want one too now! Perhaps we could club together and buy the 8-piece set? :) I really like all the extras too, like being to upgrade the engine, add headlights or a Honda S2000 body pack! :)

woooho :D, very cool toy! now I know what I'm gonna give my sisters kids in christmas(I will get the fastest one for myself) :)
but I have a few doubts, they say it will last 5-min on the site, and yours only lasts for 2-min before recharge, facial deluxe? and is the '15 foot range' any probs? sounds a little short to me.

Well must be more than 2mn, for sure ! 5mn, seems reasonable.
Anyway the charge for me is in between 20s and 45s (could be more until the led charge turns off, but as I said, I prefer charge it less, gives better results)
And for the range, the car is so small that too far you can't really see it, specially when it comes back to you (and your left is its right and vice versa, if you see what I mean))
I can drive it in all my 20m2 sitting room with no probs !

I think they are more expensive then the Shen-Qi-Wei Chinese copy I have. Though I've seen on accesories they are fully compatible....



A video here http://fahadkazim.tripod.com/index/id13.html


Sample tracks people have made :

There's also some Microsizer (seems it's only a rename)

Haha, will soon be possible to control them with a PC, via a Canopus usb card. French only (sorry)

hey thanks for the info! I found the model you have here in sweden, at a pretty cheap price. the "Bitchar" looks a little to expensive for a thing like this, I think the cheap model is enough to have fun with :)

Yeah ! I suscribed today to a french MicroRC forum. Seems BCG (bitchar-G) are better. Better for esthetic, and electronic. But I think I discuss with pure fanboys...
For pure fun, the Shenqi are cool enough :)

Glad to see you guys enjoying this.

Tons of fun. :)
