I've heard some horror stories about the air over hydraulic brake system. Mine has a full air brake system so everything is pretty standard.

I've been using this truck alot lately and so far so good. The powerband of the motor is very narrow but if you keep it in the sweet spot it pulls nice. This thing gets pretty good fuel mileage too.
