Hi,


Sorry, don't know too much about that frame, but I'd like to suggest the MT2...its a nice, tough truck and it's nice & quick too. If you don't mind getting a used one, you can also look at the AE RC10GT..you can find those hopped up for cheap (and they make good racers too)

It depends what you plan to do with it...they're not very race-ready when compared to the competition, but they'll be fine for bashing around.

Also, check to make sure you have a good supply of parts at your disposal, such as a well-stocked hobby shop or online store. Finding Rush parts can be a nightmare.

The Rush evo is a nightmare to not only drive but to work on...
It gave me nothing but trouble...If I didn't get ti for cheap I woul have been more upset.

Best advise...2WD nitro off road....RC10GT, you can get one for cheap with all the goodies...

the MST-1 is 130 for a roller. you can get an OS CV-R for 109, a starter box for 109, and an M8 system with servos, reciever for about 150. so about 500 total. the truck is really tough and reliable

If you ever plan to race get the RC10GT.....

It will be ready when you are and is still agreat truck.

The evader sill not get you to the top if you ever race it...

Only a few guys I know have ever did...OK ....with the eveader in a race...They mostly got dominated by MF's and GT's

Just trying to help you not have to buy twice...
I know the evader looks like a really good truck adn for the most part it is..
I help out my LHS every so often when they are short handed and I see so many guys bringing in there Evaders and complain they are getting beat left and right and want the biggest engine to help the Evader to win..
The bone stock GT or MF will give you alot more enjoyment and parts are everywhere...Every track I go to has them in stock...
Evader not so much.
I hope you enjoy what ever truck you choose but think long term when buying a new kit.

I made the mistake for you.....I bought twise and even three times...
Save yoruself a headache and a paycheck by listening to those who have been there.............
If you don't ever have plans to race your truck and just want something to bash with then the Evader is fine..
Now I will get flamed by five or six guys who LOVE their EVADERS sooooo much..
I am just telling you the truth and trying to help...Not sell you a certain brand....
Losi and AE are both great trucks.
I race truggy now so Brand loyalty isn't an issue...
