What are the pros and cons? My nieces and nephews all want r/c cars and are working hard to earn them. A couple of them (girl,13 and boy,10) want minis or micros... I prefer larger scales (1/10 and up). Seems that for a couple more bucks they could get 1/10 2wd beginner level RTR that would be more upgrades and availability.
PS The 1/14 Losi mini 8ight is next on MY list
