Default Hot Bodies Lightning 10 stadium questions

I'm wanting to get my step sons into rc(11 and 14)...Been looking at these trucks and thought it's be cool to get 3 of them so we could race each other and I figured being 4wd they would be easier to drive than say a Gt or NT and I'm kinda afraid to turn them loose with a 1/8 scale buggy.Considered the new Crt .5 but getting 3 of those up and running would be a bit too pricey for my pocket
How good are these trucks?
What's the difference between the sport and non sport versions?
What aftermarket bodies will fit them?

To be honest, 1/10th scale 2wd is realy the best way to get in to r/c. You can set up those trucks so that they will have gobs of rear traction if you are worried about them being able to control them. 1/10th scale 2wd is just a much more precise class which means that it will teach them throtle control. Not to mention there is tons of support for the well known gt2 or the xxx-nt. A simple way to put it, while they are learning to drive you can set up those trucks to be very forgiving and require a heavey finger to be fast, however once they get a hang of that you can set them up to be more agresive and require a softer finger. Just be sure you have a good air compressor and a good means to clean the trucks up, they are normaly a little harder to break down then 1/8th scale buggies for cleaning.
