The truck has one speed, and turning is full turn or straight, it would be nice if the product description would mention that. At the "compare at" price I would expect more. Especially longer driving time, 2 - 3 minutes of full speed just is not enough. It is not "off-road" it will bounce on uneven terrain rather than drive, and the differential is great for driving on a flat surface, but on uneven terrain, you my end up with one wheel spinning and going nowhere. If you drive it on a relatively flat surface it may be ok for the price, but it is definitely not an off-road car. If you can find a 2000mAh battery that fits in the car, you may get a better experience.
