Didn't have much money to spend but I have to say I'm pleased with this car for the price. Comes with a remote, just like all the expensive models and even though it doesn't have the fancy finish of the expensive ones it still goes like the clappers. My lad absolutely loves it. I like having the remote, as it means i can take over and bring him to a stop if need be. Only issue is the hard seat, although for a hundred and fifty quid, who cares? We bought a cushioned sportscar seat cover and hung it over the moulded headrest and it works great. £4.99 from the hardware shop!
