    Great gift, very fun, but kit was off

    My girlfriend got me this kit for Christmas and I finally got the time to build the other day. Like a previous commenter said, the whole control arm portion of the instructions was completely wrong. The entire build took me 2 hours. The control arms alone took an hour after figuring out the directions didn’t match the actual wood piece cut outs. So I just figured it out on my own. I also realized there were different versions of instructions or parts that were labeled wrong? So I didn’t see I had the front and rear diffs reversed until putting the frame together. Got the kit built and it’s really cool to drive. Such an awesome gift. Highly recommend, take the instructions with a grain of salt and try to build without using them for the control arm portion. I just wish the company would straighten out the issues that myself and other reviewers had to make it right. Also the rear body cover snapped on the one side when the directions tell you to gently bend the wood. You can’t bend it at all without it snapping

    Junk

    Bearings different sizes. One fit the others did not. Wood out of tolerance. Nothing lines up. Had to bore and tap some screws myself. At some point, it just became funny. Like, can we get this shit to work at all? Leave the bearings out, bend the wood, cut away at stuff. Just absolute junk. It would have been a few laughs if it didn't cost so much

    Man Crates Response: Hi Brian, thank you so much for your feedback!

    We apologize that this is the experience that you had with the Wooden RC Car kit that you received. Please shoot us an email at guys@mancrates.com and we will do our best to make this right.

    bending the wood.

    ps use a clothes stemer to bend the caling they did what they could to make it easyer but a stemer well let you tie a knot with it.

    Love it

    got it for Christmas . my kit was missing the instruction manual but they were very quick to send me the pdf . had know problem putting it togather.Howevery I did change some things to i mprove it. like real hydraulic shocks that set me back twelve bucks some hard rock maple to beef up the holds points longer screws for them and a rubber like bumper to give it some more protection.ive bought many rc cars in my day but ive never seen a dc motor run like this thing can run. o say it is fast is not doinf it justice. well send pics.soon.thinks for the great products.Terry R Smith

    Challenge to build

    I got this kit for my birthday and have started the build. The first issue was at step 1 on building the control arms. If you follow the directions, you will not get there because they are wrong. If you read pictures you can build the arms but reverse the names on the pictures not from what is shown for upper and lower control arms. Laser cut pieces are easy to separate and go together very well. suggest you use a high-quality wood glue for strength. Looking forward to completing the build, but this is all I have found so far.
