What reviewers didn't like

However, it’s still difficult for beginner robot DIYers to figure out.
The tires have a lot of grip. As a result, turning wasn’t very good out of the box. My solution was to simply add a strip of plastic tape to each front tire, so the slick side was in contact with the ground.
