    Product seems to be very nice. BUT: I bought the upgraded version. I got a carton stating I got Pirates 2 MT-8. In the carton box there is a manual which states Pirates 3 MT-8. The manual tells that the car is not water splash proof. I think I bought the upgraded version on which the ESC is splash proof and motor totally eater proof. As there are no any markings on motor and on ESC there is marking of "ZD" it is impossible to verify what I have got. of course on videos I can see that there is blue colored motor for basic set and I have black motor. So this is very confusing! I would be happy to have the markings/labels on upgraded parts to tell that ESC is 120A and motor is the upgraded version.

    The 9116 Pirates 2 is a great value 1/8 scale RC monster truck. Great looks and performance for a good price. I've been playing with this with my son and he loves it. It's very fast so supervision with younger children is highly recommended. I would have given 5/5 stars, but there a few minor things which let this down: - The supplied batteries (2 x 2S) have a complicated wiring set-up, with the balance lead (type JST-XH) connector soldered to the detachable wire looms rather than directly to the battery. This is messy and makes balance charging difficult - you'll need some crocodile clips to chain the wires together to complete the necessary circuit for charging. - The supplied charger is an ImaxRC B3 Pro Compact Charger, which is very basic but should work. However mine was DoA, and at the time of writing I am still waiting for a resolution from Banggood. - I had a medium impact crash within the first few days of owning this and the right-hand steering cup (part #8135) broke. This does appear to be a particular weakness with this Pirates 2 RC truck, an issue that has also been picked up in a number of youtube reviews of this RC car. It's an easy fix, but I've had to order new parts. Overall this is a really good basher for the money, but some good advice is: - Buy a separate bag of replacement body clips - they are easily lost - Buy separate metal steering cups (replace part #8135 with part #8052) - Buy your own separate batteries and a half-decent charger (note optimal battery dimensions for the 9116 chassis are 139(L) x 47(W) millimetres)

    Llego bastante antes de lo que ponía en la fecha de entrega, un mes justo, la caja que lo contenía llegó bien y todo lo del interior perfecto. Dentro de la caja está el coche con su mando, cargador, varios repuestos, tubo antena y un manual super completo. Viene con dos baterías de 7.4v y de 5000mah y 3000mah, da un total de 8000mah de capacidad y trabaja al estar en serie a 4S. Emisora sencilla pero completa y buen alcance, el coche corre unos 70kmh testados, sale de caballito si quieres.

    Well done quite reliable monster truck for unbelievibly low price. What I actually received inside this RC car - 4274 motor (ZD racing) , 120A ESC ( actually seems to be 60-65A non waterproof, 2x2 in a row (4s)- 4000ma max hard box LiPo, 2ch ZD transmitter good qualtiy, enough power servo 0.9 hard screws What was broken and repaired(replaced) - front wheel strike at 30 km/h, ESC burned after 5 days due to ride on wet grass. Changed grease in all 3 diffs (they arrived almost empty and leaked), enforced cover, splited 2s batteries Max. speed in stock 3s GENs 25C - 53.8 km/h, 2s ZD 25c - 37.7 km/h. Overall impression - great car for the requested money .

    I arrive in Spain in 31 days. Came in an unprotected box inside for the car, a little weird this... I came with the manual of zd racing pirates 3, so I will have to complain to them to send me the one of my model. The car gives the feeling that something is going to come loose at any moment, it makes a lot of noise the transmission and there are screws that have to be tightened... Bad feeling in this respect. It came in a different color than the one I ordered. The charger pretty bad. It also seems to spin little, but I guess I'll have to play something to adjust (I don't mean the transmitter) The positive thing about the car is that it runs a lot and aesthetically it is very beautiful, the size impresses and the price it has is difficult to find anything better on this scale. The batteries ok

    To be fair, I got the car but I haven't got to use it outside yet (fuck you coronavirus). I tried to use it on my veranda but, hell, it is too fast to test anything. I changed the connector of the battery from T-plug to xt60 so I can use my own charger. With the T-plug I desoldered from the battery I made an xt60 adapter. Because I wanted to use my own charger I had to "merge" the two 2s batteries balancing wires. You have to use a 5 wire jst connector and put the cables like the 6th photo (you don't use the one wire from the series connector). Remember to tighten ALL the screws and use Threadlocker. One of the screws that I checked was one that locks a metal bar in the front suspension (last two photos), I tried to tighten it down but it was stuck and now I cannot tight or untight it because it is destroyed... I don't know if it is going to be a problem when I make jumps, I will try to find a spare part.

    Been wanting to have these for quite some time already. After I have found out Banggood is selling this really cheap plus adding a discount code making me unresistable of not buying it. Awesome RTR truck really good value for money. I am really happy to have this in my collections😁
