Yes.

It is old though, so getting parts is more difficult. The RC10GT2 would be a better choice. If you are just starting in the hobby though the RC10GT is not a bad choice because it is simple and cheap to operate. The performance will not match that of other popular cars like the Revo, Savage, or Losi 8ight RTR, but the GT will probably cost a tenth of one of those cars.

It is a great car! A two wheel drive and lightweight machine. They have a very extensive hostory in RC racing. Tower Hobbies has any parts you might need. They are durable and fast... Just not the best in deep grass or mud-snow. An OS 18 and a set of paddle tires makes them a riot in sand.....

Oh, alright thanks. I have a Tmaxx, but I want something different and I just saw that on ebay for cheap. I'm thinking about getting a Revo, but I haven't made up my mind yet.

I agree with what everyone else has said about the RC10GT. Being 2wd, balance is important for good handling and getting the backend to hook up. the RC10GT was one of the first 2wd's to be well balanced. It's a pretty easy car to drive which adds a bunch to the fun factor.

I disagree that the performance won't match some of the newer mass produced cars. I believe it will. You'd still be better off if you plan to go into racing with a GT2 though, that way you have access to the latest parts, and plenty of them.
