Default Need opinions...

Hey guys, I've found something I'm fairly interested in.
This is it http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...?&I=LXLKY7&P=FR

I plan to use it around my neighborhood out in front of my house, jumping curbs riding through the grass and hitting some built ramps. I'm new to R/C. Almost thinking of going RTR at first. I'm thinking a buggie style or mini truck would be good for me starting out to be kind of rough on.

Let me know!

Hey youre on the right track i know if you want to just use it for fun thats a really good one i would suggest the traxxas rustler though its really awesome and when you get into gas if you do the jato is the one for anyone a bit fast but awesome.

Tree95z-Dont go with the Duratrax.Their parts are becoming harder and harder to get.Not sure why.

On the Traxxas if you have a local shop near you the parts are readily available at most shops.

Goodluck and have fun with it.

Is the traxxas rustler pretty quick? I mean, is it okay fast wise? Could it do some fun jumps off of curbs and stuff?

My stampede (the monster truck version of a rustler) is pretty fun. I don't know how well a rustler would take landings though. I guess you'll have to ask someone who has one.

A RTR T4 would be a great truck. The Traxxas isnt bad either. I would never own a Duracrap car....... But they do make nice chargers.....

Stay away from the Duratrash. The Traxxas Rustler is a great beginner truck. They actually are pretty durable. Both of my kids and several of their friends have the Rustler or Stampede in both electric and nitro. Almost every hobby store has parts readily available for them, and can be modded and upgraded in many ways.

Well I'm thinking the Rustler is probably what I'm going to go with...

Can you get like faster engines and stuff for them? better wheels? etc? I don't know much about this stuff hehe.
