Have you liked it, would you recommend it for another beginner?

I think so. There are a few parts that should be replaced, but for the most part, I think it's a good value!

Sweet. It looks like an RC18 clone.

If you don't mind, how much did you pay?

I bought it from the HobbyKing US warehouse. It was a bit of a mistake for me in Canada, as I got hammered by UPS for brokerage. The cost of the kit is $52.99 from that warehouse right now, sounds like about what I got mine for. It is $49.99 from the international warehouse in Hong Kong.

Thanks.

Do you know if the RC18 parts fit?

I really don't know, sorry.

My son and I had the cars out in the snow this afternoon, lots of fun! The cars handled it very well.

Can you drive this car in the snow? I'd assume the electronics are not very well protected?

We didn't have any problems. I definitely made sure everything got dried out properly and then generously oiled the diffs, motor and dogbone connections to avoid any rust. Everything is still working fine!

While these electronics aren't "waterproof", I have rarely had issues with getting them wet. I had a floatplane go in and flip over once, the servos and motor still worked underwater (as did the nav lights!).
