Why the hyper ST? there's much better out there for the $$ imo.

My recomendations:
Buggy - Associated RC8 , Very easy to drive and parts are plentiful.
Truggy - Jammin CRT Pro , Very rugged and parts are plentifull.
Monster Truck - Traxxas Revo , Very rugged and the setups are endless plus a very wide range of parts.
2WD Nitro - Associated RC10 , very easy to drive and parts are plentiful. Very easy to maintain.

I would further recomend starting with a 2wd nitro until you have the basics and then some downpat. Jumping into a buggy or truggy can get expensive very fast if you lack the basic knowledge. Just my two cents.

The pro is the Kit, it comes with no servo's. The pro will cost you Over $1000
by the time you are done. Stick to the RTR. You can upgrade a little at a time. The Hyper ST RTR is a really good starter buggy in the price range you want. Are there better ones, yes, do they cost $150-$200 more, yes. Can you win races, and have a blast bashing your Hyper ST RTR. Hell YES!! Go for it. You'll love it

Yes. In America the Hyper ST Pro is the Kit! The Hyper ST, is the RTR, and I agree with you! The Ready to run is a good deal, very much worth the money, and definitely needs a better steering servo. Peace, Jaz

Are you in the U.S.?

Right now Nitrohouse has the Hyper ST Pro kit for $349, that's a pretty good price for a "pro" kit.

The reason I went with a buggy was that wheels and tires are considerably cheaper and when racing you'll want to have several sets on hand. If you are bashing, it's not such a big deal. Just run them until they are slick, then replace.

One last thing, If you've got the funds I think you should go with the ST Pro kit. IMO, Ofna RTR accessories are junk - radio, servos, and engines. YMMV.

Good luck.
