Jack Ford - 4th March 2016

Great vehicle :P If you are looking to start out with RC then this is for you because this car has 2 cousins and they can share their parts so its good for customisation to . With my car iIcurrently have a vantage main but installed carnage body posts and bumper and a bugsta body . The parts are fairly cheap so don't worry drive full throttle also they offer upgrade parts from stronger materials . All in all i highly recommend this car to anyone

Could you please tell me the speed of the FTX vantage brushed?
Asked by Kelly Edwards on 10th October 2016

Speed isn't quoted for these, but we'd estimate around 20-25mph.

Could you tell how long battery will run for and how long it takes to charge?
Asked by Jason Goodhead on 12th November 2016

The stock battery should last around 10-15 minutes or so depending on how you drive.

Charge time with the included charger is around 5-6 hours.  However, we do list several combo packs with faster chargers (under 1 hour charge time) and longer lasting batteries (up to around 30 mins runtime).

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

If I buy the battery upgrade (fast charger and higher cpacity) do I still get the original too?
Asked by Andy on 9th June 2017

Yes, the original battery remains included with the car.

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Is this suitable for a 9 year old and also can it be used on wet sand/beaches?
Asked by Nigel Allcock on 12th December 2017

With adult supervision it should be fine.

This now includes a waterproof ESC, so should be fine in damp conditions - please note running in wet/sandy conditions will require additional maintenance however.

Can u ship electronics to ireland?
Asked by Francis on 26th November 2019

Answered by: Anthony @ Wheelspin Models

I’ve read that this model is compatible with both NiMH and LiPo batteries. If I were to upgrade to a 2c 7.4v LiPo - which connector would the battery need?
Asked by Jo on 11th July 2020

Yes you can run NiMh or 2S LiPo.

The car has tamiya connectors
