Default Redcat Rockslide

I pretty much have my mind made up I'm going to get one I just need a little push off the cliff..
This will be used for very light duty crawling.to put that in perspective my first course is pretty much pillows to couch to couch to coffee table back of pillows with a few cat attack obstacles.
I just don't have a crawler in my stable and not looking to spend a lot I figured the rockslide might fit that bill..any opinions from owners our someone that knows what there talking about would be appreciated.

The rockslide is not a bad beginner rig. I've had a couple myself and they worked good. If I was looking for a budget rtr crawler I would pick up a redcat everest myself. More and easier upgrades.

I was checking out the Everest but the rear steering of the Rockslide looks pretty cool.
