u get a truck that is one of the fastest toy grade cars out there, takes only 1 hour to charge, controller takes only 2 AA batteries, range is pretty good for an outdoor truck, can do 180 degree turns by tapping on the brakes while holding turn (this allows u to use it indoors). this truck is gorgeous to look at. turning radius is a little worse than average for toy grade at this size. try not to gun it in reverse as it seems like that would be beating on it. it has proportional throttle which means the more you press the trigger, the faster it goes. so if you press the trigger lightly, you will go slow. it works like the gas pedal on a real car. this thing will work on concrete, streets, kitchen floors, etc. don't try it in grass, dirt, sand, etc. and don't get it wet. it will run on carpet, but will not do 180 turns on carpet. this would make it hard to steer on carpet.
