This is a great rig. I've owned several HG products in the past and they were all great trucks. Do they have there flaws,yes but so does every brands including the big brands 'rtr version' (occasionally kits) rcs. While this is an 8x8 wheel drive with 4 wheel front steering,this is not a crawler and should not be used like a crawler. I seen people use a few HG trucks the way they were not intended to be built for such as crawling,bashing,etc. and then break these (it's mainly the axle and transmission gears) and other HG trucks, then complain about it and say HG products are junk. HG are infact good trucks BUT you have to treat and drive them as they should be driven. If you do this and not put heavy strain on the gears by driving the P801,P802 and P803A like a rock crawler then you will be fine. This is a heavy truck so the gears will have alot more strain put on them if not driven correctly. The HG P803A is more like a trail truck. If you drive it sensibly then it will last you. 1 of the things I like with this P803A and a few other HG trucks,they come in a nice foam carrying case. Though I found that the P803A version has a much tighter fit then usual and you will have to unscrew and remove the mud flaps every time to get the truck back in the case so I will most likely not use the case. Not saying all cases are like this,but the 1 I received was a little snug to my liking. 1 thing I recommend is to drive this to your trail spot as this is not a light weight rig. I have a 1/6 capo sixer that is lighter then this. The HG P803A is about roughly 27-28 lbs (12.5-13 kgs),but that's due to the fact that a large percentage of this rig is metal. The only thing I plan to change is the radio as I'm not a fan of stick radios. I recommend the standard version over the upgraded version as I'm not a fan of the red,white and blue colored police lights on a military rig. If you like military rigs then I definitely recommend this for you.

blueovalboy94 I've order at least 8-9 rc's from banggood and never had any issues. They always came in a timely matter,about 2-2.5 weeks being I live in the United States but never had any customs issues either.

This is my 4th HG P407 rc truck that I owned and the 3rd 1 I bought from banggood. I've owned many of the original and re-released version that this truck is modeled after and these run just as well as the real deal tamiya bruiser. As unlike most I actually ran all my bruisers (og and re-re) and used them,afterall they're meant to be used and enjoyed not sit on a shelf to look at,lol. These are great trucks for the money and run just as well. Unfortunately the truck I bought had a little bit of rust on the chassis and on the rear lower control arms. I will say this though,I've owned several different HG model trucks and this was the 1st and only 1 that had any kind of rust. While this might bother some it doesn't bother me 1 bit as this truck will be used and enjoyed. It's not a shelf queen. I upgraded the radio system and once adjusted the truck drives,steers and shifts really smooth. Though if you do want to mod this truck,the 1st mod you should do is the front servo mod. Once done,the truck turns so much better. If your looking for something to compete with say an scx10,then this truck is not for you. If you want something similar to say a trail finder but without the trail finder price,then this might be for you. Just remember the axles do not use a 12mm hex,swapping wheels is not simple. You have to to either buy a conversion kit or do your own custom mod. Overall I recommend this truck to anyone. It's a great rc for the money and with it being say 85% metal it's a great value.

blueovalboy94 If a box is marked 1/16 scale then that's what any and all companies will advertise it as. It is up to the manufacturer of the product to determine scale. So everyone quit bitching
