I previously owned the Backfire G2, and since late may I own this board. To me it is the perfect little commuter board, it's fast at around 35km/h, it's easy to handle with it kicktail and the remote I love. The acceleration is smooth and braking as well. The only cons I've found are the board being heavy, it cannot hold position on a hill holding the brakes and with the remote/esc cannot change speedmode while going faster then 3km/h. These things I take for granted, that's why to me it's great!
Keep in mind I can only compare this to the Backfire.
