Default Looking to get into crawling.

Hey everyone, over the years Iíve been into truggies and monster trucks mostly. Now Iím looking into trying something new and getting into crawling. Has anyone used Billet Works Designs? Found their website donít know anything about them. Anyone have other suggestings on manufacturers? Thanks!

That company looks like metal upgrades. If you want a decent crawler with parts support, look into the traxxas trx4 or the many offerings from axial.

BWD are comp crawlers which are easily 1000$+ if you build them ...certainly nothing to "start" with because you have to build the whole car by yourself!
If you still interested look up RCC forum in "shafty" section .....but like I said these cars you are talking about are really special.

Redcat GEN8 V2! Perfect price point and it will need upgrades, so you will learn to work on it.

+1 for the TRX4. The SCX10.2 is a great truck, but many upgrades are needed to make it compete with the trx4 out the box and the plastics used by axial dont feel as good as on the trx4.

I would waste more breath on this thread, ask a question and never return.
