I do not understand the point of owning any of the RC Cars Futureshop Sells. I've looked at a Bunch of them and they say the Run Time is 10 - 15 Minutes at most. That is a Joke. I have a 24 year old TYCO RC Car that I can use for 4 hours. sure it probably doesn't go a Mile an Hour but I got it when I was 8.
$700 and Under is too much for 15 minutes of Use. I would require at Minimum 60minutes of Use on a Single Charge.

But they are just beginner kits. So upgrading a battery pack might be the first thing you do.
All the ones I had maybe lasted 5min before I could tell they were running down. Definetly recommend the gas powered ones.......

Another thing I find odd is how fast these things go. you would need access to a race track like they show in the trailer. it would take no time before the car was out of your sight. Especially going 100kmph

they are diffidently outside toy's I run a E-MAX i get about 20 min out of a charge, the speed is nuts for what they are but you have to also remember that a Traxxes are upgradable and the electric are a lot quieter that the gas units
