    Looks a little too “toy-ish” to me.

    this truck is awesome and takes a beating . my son is 7 and beats the crap out of this truck .i was very shocked to see a mini truck do 25 mph out of a box . and i learned that there is a huge number of parts that can be put in to make it a 45 + mph truck . very cool and fun for the price
