Edzachary!!! Get what ya want the first time out even if you have to save longer. Very worthwhile to do, so you aren't out 400 bux or whatever and still wishing you had something else.

I will say I've seen some severely tricked out revos and they are fast as shiznit on the track!! But they also have at least a 1000 bux in em at least if not 1500!!!

I've had truggies and I have a Revo now, beleive me, the Revo is WAY cheaper then a truggie. If only since the engine is 1/2 the price as are pipes, etc. Arms, shock parts, and alot of other items are less expensive too.

You can spend an obscene amount of money on either if you REALLY want though....
