It honestly dont look too bad for $279 but their parts are expensive as hell. And not everywhere. I say you call up Stormer hobbies and get a D8 kit for $309 and start from there, if your trying to race thats your best bet RTR's just dont cut it well $400 RTR wont at least in my book. That new Losi rtr coming out or is out looks like a killer package and I am not even a Losi fan.

i heard that the cen truggy is pretty good the matrix buggy i dont know
if u have a hobby store around u they proberty dont sell cen parts.
a jammin rtr or a jammin truggy is around $400 , a hot bodies lighting truggy is around 400 and your hobby store proberty has parts for it.but the hb d8t is a lot better but its a kit but its 100 cheaper
