If you go here (http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...=LXRUS2**&P=ML) you can see the price, and parts under the link "Replacement and Optional parts" to the left of the screen.

I'd check out the gt2 rtr, it's just a hair cheaper at tower. Plus the associated .15 is a more reliable easier to tune engine than the traxxas engines. Not flaming traxxas at all, but that has been my experiance.
The nitro rustler looks like a nice truck. I just don't like traxxas engines.

plus I personally think the gt2 is easier to work on ,has a pullstart, and all around a better beginner truck easy to work on, the rustler rocks but is kinda a pain to work on, and the easy start is a piece of sh$t.

check it out, also its only $294.99 @tower and with the code you can get $30 knocked off
