I've got a couple of 1/10th 4wd trucks. A CEN MG10MT that I converted to brushless with a Nemesis 7XL, yes it is crazy. I also have an HPI Nitro MT2. For $119 you can't beat that academy, it would be a great starter car for a beginner.

Yeah, as a beginner I would go with that rtr. Getting it that cheap is good just incase you mess anything up....you won't be as hard on yourself..where as if you bought a $400 nitro.

Got to wonder how long parts will be around if they are discontinueing it though. Still a good deal.

My thoughts exactly If anything breaks wither it be 100 or 500 $ if you can not get parts or it takes forever to get parts it is not worth nothing to me just my .02 cents

Buy another truck for parts then, even if you do that you will end up cheaper than the competition.

That would give you one of everything but my luck I would break the same part twice

Hey guys... I know this is much more money than that stadium truck, but I wanted to post this here because THIS THING IS BAD!

http://www.airlandhobbies.com/catalo...4454345945.htm

On the parts note you can get Traxxas parts just about anywhere in the world. These new Slayer trucks are also super tough and I'm sure they will have a race class very soon just like the Slash's do now. You gotta love the Traxxas marketing machine... LOL!

Jump in with both feet and get one of these bad boys...
