Is this Remote Controlled Rock Crawler built to last ?

Well, I certainly can say it seems to be very well made. It has been used for a lot of off-road driving madness and has so far come out unscathed. It does have a few marks and scuffs, but these were expected.

In terms of design, it’s rather basic and comes nowhere near the likes of the much more expensive Metakoo Storm RC car that I own. It’s missing things like the removable fiber body and fancy looking motors and fancy looking suspension systems. Its design is based on that of a beach buggy, so it looks awesome, it even has a cockpit area that includes two seats and a steering wheel etc.

Crossrace Remote Controlled Rock Crawler

At the front and rear ends, the wheels are mounted with an extra bouncy suspension system that really makes this remote controlled rock crawler quite the off-road buggy. The system allows the suspension to the tilt the car sideways, forwards and backward for the ultimate landings over big jumps.

The shell of the car consists of plastic with panels made of thinner but strong plastic running around the outside of it. This material is excellent as it has good properties which make it survive even the worst of head on wall crashes and mid-air flip overs, of which I have had a few.

This car comes with a rechargeable battery that takes between 4 and 5 hours to charge (6 hours for the first charge). Unfortunately, a full charge only lasts 30 minutes, which isn’t all that long when you consider it takes 5 hours to fully charge the battery.

Normally with RC car’s I often find they come with a generic controller, which is usually black and bland, but this remote controlled rock crawler comes with a rather nice looking controller that is finished with a green and black color scheme, that really does make it feel like the car and the remote control are made for each other. The controller is powered by three AA batteries, although none of these come included so you will have to provide your own.

Crossrace Remote Controlled Rock Crawler

The driving experience

While most basic RC cars are built for smooth surfaces and get boring very quickly, this one is built for small off-road tracks such as the private walkway at the side of my house, which consists of trees, a rough ground full of mud, stones and sticks. This makes this area the perfect place to play with this remote controlled rock crawler.

The car is amazing on this track. It’s fun, fast and responsive, which is all anyone really wants from a remote controlled rock crawler. It handles the bumps and rough ground really well, which makes it so much fun. There even a slightly raised bump in the ground that gives it some awesome air time. It lands with quite a bounce thanks to the amazing suspension system on both sets of wheels.

It also performs well on smooth surfaces, but lets face it that’s a boring use of such a fun product. Simply put this is built for having serious fun and to use it on a smooth surface is just a waste of what it has to offer.

Overall

With only a few little flaws I can certainly recommend this for anyone who wants a cheap but extremely fun off-road remote controlled vehicle. It’s well made and very fast, the only downsides are that the design isn’t the best and the battery isn’t that good.
