Questions and Answers
is it for sure PRO VERSION?
Here Pro Version with 3 batteries: https://www.banggood.com/HBX-16889A-Pro-p-1891731.html?p=QH040332415964202311&ID=45583&warehouse=CN
Can you race multiple (three) of them at the same time or would there be RF interference?
Are the batteries li-po or li-on, please?
Most likely Li-Po. All these cars of which I own a Dozen or so, all take LiPo. You know, the kind which are small and pack a wallop. The kind you better keep in a fire Bag. The kind you keep in a Metal Ammo box as well. Hopefully if the shyt hits the fan the fire will be contained. Out of control, but contained. Nothing is as scary as a LiPo Fire! You can’t put it out and you sure as hell can’t put H2O on it or it will flare up like coco puffs!

Almost left a bad review as the truck didn’t seem powerful out of the box. After going over the truck, I noticed from another picture, the reverse and forward wires were backwards. Runs good now!

Nice little and solid basher. Mine comes with heatsink on it. The headlight are very bright! The tires are a little slippery on road, dont test it off road yet. I think im gonna put my Remo tires on it. Overall very nice truck!!

Great little machine this one was born to drive off-road. Preferably asphalt mixed with sand. It was not made for high speeds and should not be subjected to such. Very pleasant to drive. From the factory the suspension is ok in terms of the necessary lubrication mechanics the bug makes noise everywhere, it came with the original box still well well I don't think the styrofoam is funny because it doesn't mean less damage. It came with all the accessories plus 3 🔋 but it was a waste of money, I thought this one came with 2 toppings but no anyway . another not good point batteries poorly thought out project at least up to the maximum limit of 🔋 2 s would have been great and when cleaning nothing ok small size doesn't help at all 😁 I won't go into more detail. Final rating 4.5 👍

Just received this great little powerhouse today. Package was good condition and no heavy hits at any side of packaging. Shipping was delivered here in Finland at 19 days. Everything was in order as described, worth of mention was that motor had heatsink installed which was very nice update for the whole set. Overall excellent 1/16 size car, for having fun and bashing. 2S lipo gives good punch and playtime in pretty much all terrain. I also installed Dusty Motors cover to car body, for keep things clean, highly recommended. -MW

The package arrived within the specified period (5 weeks from order) without prejudice. The 3 lipos were in good condition at 3.8 V per cell. The robustness and fun factor of the little Basher should be well known.

Amazing piece of kit, my son loves it and it draws a crowd at the park! We've managed to squeeze in 1500mah batteries too. makes a big difference to run time.

this is my 2nd one now, an absolute bargain for the amount of fun they are! hugely capable, I even run mine on 3s, does flips all day long over the jumps, would definitely recommend everyone have one of these to bash about care free. also running different wheels and tyres as the stock ones are a little too firm for my liking

Very excited to get this one out, package arrived un damaged which is always a worry, comes with actual Lipo batteries

It's small and mighty pretty quick for its size it jumps and lands really well. wheelie bar is great really nice quality for the money. The small 1000mah 2s lipo is awesome lasts a good 20mins+ if u buy the one with more batteries u will have pretty much endless runtime. It was also delivered to the UK with in 7days

It arrived to UK in only 7 days! I was expecting to wait for at least two more weeks. Box had a few dents but product arrived intact. The box description is a bit confusing - I thought for a moment they have sent me the previous model - but it was the right thing inside (16889A Pro). I selected the '3 battery' option and I got the right thing. Re: performance and functionality it's too early to say anything but there are plenty YT videos to get the idea. I can't wait to try it - waiting to get the battery charged (it takes forever with the supplied USB charger). You might consider buying iMAX B6 Lipo Smart Charger or something similar while you're waiting for the delivery.
