Got it cheap, but the motor runs strong, and runs great. I don't have any professional views of how it runs as its my first car. It only has minor issues like headlight motors making a grinding noise when lowered , a small hole in the passenger side fender, and the passenger's window motor doesn't seem to work. I've had great moments with this car already with burnouts and quick takeoffs. Gives me a good feeling when i see heads turn.
