I like the Hyper 8 or the Jammin 1X Cr FT kit. I guess it's really a point of preference.

Good choice on Kyosho, CEN spare parts are hard to get if only your local hobby shop carries it.

I've got a matrix and I love it, its built like a tank, goes throguh the roguh stuff like nothing else i've driven, jumps awsome, its super controable in the air, fit and finish is top notch, parts are very durable, its deffinatly worht looking at,

parts are easy to get for it, any shop that deal with Horizon can get stuff, or you can buy direct from horizon, or there are a bunch of online shops that carry them, www.carolinasrc.com is one,

but if youve already got the kyosho, it is sometimes a good idea to stay with the same brand just for parts swaping, or you could get the matrix truggy when it comes out too
