The MJX Hyper Go 14209 is another excellent 1/14 scale brushless RC truck from MJX with a unique look and slightly better handling
MJX have been absolutely hitting it out of the park recently, especially on their range of large 1/14 scale RC cars like the onroad basher 14301 on road basher I reviewed here and 14210 off-road truggy I reviewed here. Both were so good I had to award them with on and offroad cars of the year respectively. The MJX Hyper Go 14209 I'm reviewing here shares the same chassis and parts especially with the 14210 truggy, so where does this leave this car in the hierarchy? Read on to find out more
The MJX Hyper Go 14210 is a bigger badder version of their excellent brushless 1/16 range. It is fast, handles great and has good battery life and the attention to detail is on point
Each MJX RC car I have reviewed is a substantial improvement on the one previous. The Hyper Go H16E (reviewed here) was a 4wd 1/16 scale truck that had built in GPS speed but was overly complex and a little expensive for a brushed car but it performed well and was very durable. The Hyper Go 16208 switched to brushless and took out the expensive GPS and remains an excellent budget option that is fast and durable, better even than the super popular HBX 16889a pro. Their first larger 1/14 released is the on-road Hyper Go 142301 basher and I chose this as my on-road car of the gear - driving (and drift) performance is hard to believe for a relatively low cost RTR car. Now we have the Hyper Go 14210 as reviewed here which uses the same core chassis but wraps it in big suspension, big grippy wheels and a lot of fine touches that make this my favourite offroad RC car of the year.

The MJX HYPER GO 14301 (and 14302) are brushless 1/14 scale on road cars that are equipped for grip style bashing and drifting. They are not only well featured but well built making for a solid driving experience with a lot of thought having gone into the build. In this review I'll look at the car in close detail and of course offer a full review of the driving performance.
MJX are a brand that are quietly going about building a solid body of work in the budget RC car scene. I've reviewed the MJX HYPER GO H16E here which is a very durable small scale brushed monster truck that outperformed my expectations. They have also made a brushless version of this truck, the MJX 16208 which I've driven but haven't reviewed. It is my belief that MJX have even been contracted to make the WLToys 124008. It is my appreciation of these cars that piqued my interest for the 14301 as reviewed here and the 14302 by association. These are an onroad version based around the same car but with shorter arms, a discrete gyro and altered bodywork which makes them a solid onroad basher. First, lets look at what is included in the box.
The MJX Hyper Go H16H (monster truck shape) and H16E (truggy shape) are 4WD offroad 1/16 scale trucks powered by a 390 brushed motor. They have a smart battery that is simply charged by USB cord and has a built in GPS that relays data back to your bluetooh enabled phone so you can measure instantaneous throttle position, speed and maximum speed.
MJX are a Chinese manufacturer that have made popular camera drones like the MJX Bug 19 B19 GPS for a few years now. They have taken some of this knowledge and have used it to make a 1/16 scale RC monster truck with a rather unique and easy to use battery and of course full GPS speed measuring functionality. Instead of getting carried away with bells and whistles though, the car underneath is actually very good - chunky metal drivetrain, nice aluminium oil filled shocks, really nice looking wheels and tyres with great tread and a clever body fitment which should make it much more durable. As usual well look at what's in the box first, a closer look at the car and the a review to see how it actually performs.
