Nothing wrong with this kit. great tool. Just make sure you change your tip and filter pads regularly. Tips will wear out quicker than you think. Also always use the rod cleaner after each use. New guns are pretty economical to

fullsizeoutput_cdd.jpegfullsizeoutput_cde.jpeg

Love building these things and upgrading them with all the cool hop-up options available. Then me and my daughter go to town on the body shell/custom paint job/stickers etc :)

Gott some proper ball races. plus i have oil filled aluminium shocks (green), sports motor and some other chassis upgrade parts coming.

Its all about the building of them for me. Once its all done, we'll most likely sell it and start again :)

Used to love them as a kid, could never afford one back i the day. But my mate had a Ninja.

I've since bought The Hornet and a few others.
