I think it's a great set, and if it isn't as fast as the Outdoor Challenger, the fact that it's compatible with Standard LEGO makes way more than up for it... Now I'm gonna have to find one more to try and make a 4wheel drive... And those four steering wheels I've just thought of earlier...

Driving the set is a blast, due to its speed, and the ability to use the set outdoors, where said speed can actually be used. The set is actually much too fast to be used indoors, unless you have a large house or an empty gym to use (or TLCB Executive Washroom and Sauna, Ed.). Unfortunately, the center of gravity is a bit high, which could cause a flip if you're not careful. Luckily, controlling the model is easy, as the controller is not only quite ergonomic, but the joystick for drive and steer are proportional.
