ya don't waste your time with a redcat, they are more problems than they are worth, get a good old OFNA like this one: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...t-w-Macstar-28

you'll be glad you did...

well idk about that, RC8B is PIMP, they are badass out of the box, chassis bling is top notch and you'll be kicking yourself if you go with the OFNA over the Associated, but as far as a really solid beginner buggy, the OFNA is great

You will not find anything better than the Losi 2.0 RTR but its $600-$700 depending on where you buy it, for $270 for the Hyper 7, your dad will have a blast and keep up with you on the track
