[QUOTE=sa_311]IT seems very affordable, why would I not want to purchase this. I would like to get into this hobby for a reasonable cost. I want something that will take some abuse but won't cost me an arm and a leg. I don't want to spend a fortune, I have too many hobbies.Strong, fast, reliable, affordable.
I don't know who told you this hobby was cheap. in my CHEAPER cars i have at least $600 put into them.
this is NOT a cheap hobby...at all.
not trying to discourage you...but don't buy something BECAUSE it's cheap. people made that mistake with Daihatsu back in the 80s, and more recently with Daewoo. remember them? Daewoos are sitting on used car lots, 02 models, for $1,000 with low miles FOR A REASON.
hands down, the best bang for the buck RC truck currently is the Team Losi LST. around $550-600 for a new one.
At any rate, a good truck, like the RS4 MT2, can be had for a hair over $300. check out www.horizonhobby.com
and whatever you choose, make sure you buy from your local hobby shop.
