General Comments:

A super rewarding hobby car.

The 107" wheel base pick up body makes it useful compared to the shorter models.

The 2.0L motor is torquey at low rpm, weak at speeds above 35mph.

Kid's favorite play structure!

Pick up cab is warm in winter and can be removed by one person alone.
