Agreed. For bashing or racing, find out what inventory your local hobby shop or track actually replenishes. Then consider durability, performance, and price. If you go with a vehicle that's not supported then you'll have to stock up on parts if you don't want your day of racing to end early. Consider purchasing a second kit up front so you'll at least have a backup of every part.
