On-Road: Which do I choose?
Okay, so you’ve got a good patch of thin carpet, or another non-bumpy surface in front of you. You’re looking for a lot of speed, right? The Speed Booster Set has just the right motor and gear combination for you. Although the acceleration is slower than the other motors, the top speed of the orange motor and gearset beats the rest.

Off-Road: Which do I pick?
For your offroading adventure, you can use either the red or the yellow motors. If your course requires more torque, use the red motor and gears. If you can use more speed, go for the yellow motor and gears. Both have an impressive balance of speed and torque, but yellow offers a slight bit more speed than torque and red offers more torque than speed. So it all depends on your wants/needs.

Overall Value
Out of 10 points, I would give the ZipZaps Monster Truck Speed Booster Set a 9/10. The extra motor clip seems unnecessary, and I think $6.99 is just a little bit too high of a price. If they dropped the price $2 it’d be a perfect buy! But it gets a solid 9 because it contains a motor for your every need!
