Then buy a kit, just choose the one you like better
Dingo or Honcho is a matter of taste (+the Dingo is a little shorter).
You cannot go wrong with an SCX10.

I bought a Dingo RTR and have had lots of fun both driving it and gradually upgrading it.
The Dingo kit sure looks really nice...

Mine looks like this now:

the dingo kit has alloy lower links and steering links + the wb8 driveshafts, so if you have the radio gear and electrics the dingo might suit you better, but it is a personal choice.
i like the kit, cause you get to know how the truck works as you build it.

I like the honcho better,mine started out as a dingo..Added the 4-link to get it longer, and ditched the bumpers and body cuz I got hung up on rocks too much

The honcho is longer and fits most all of the nitro monster truck bodies... That's what I like.
My honcho is running a ford bronco body for a tmaxx 2.5 and I love it...
