Abuse friendly design , an excellent time pass with little modification
23 December 2018
Built is decent, able to withstand moderate abuse from 4 year old. Unlike the claim of waterproof , a 10 minutes drive in the sand dunes got the front wheel totally stuck. Sand dunes made way to the front motor casing and gear system got stuck. No big deal though, a clean up brought back everything to normal. So forget about driving in slush or water . Another flaw observed was steering, irrespective of directional trimmer adjustment, the car seldom runs on a long straight line. This was observed after 5 hours of usage.
Now to the biggest draw back, the battery back up. The provided NiCd pack mentioned 700mah, but in reality it will be close to 1/8 to of it. Hence the 25 minutes run time. This was taken care a small diy - used 4 of Panasonic enloop batteries and the car runs for 2.5 hours nonstop for a single charge. The diy is easy, one would need a battery case which nicely goes into the current battery compartment. The positive lead was soldered to the switch and the negative directly to the pcb. The existing battery and it's connector was removed completely. If one happenes to have the rechargeable batteries, the additional expense is about Rs.100.
