You can have one for that cheap, but the radio is garbage. If you buy one of these, throw the radio in the trash, and buy anything decent that can actually power a high torque steering servo...

Get one of the AE Gt 1/10 scale stadium truck RTR's. Cars been around forever, tough and ready to race at the novice level. You should be able to walk into any LHS and pick it up for that price. It even somes with a rechargeable glow ignitor(one less thing to buy) and a fuel bottle.

ofna is a very good brand. i used to have a ofna mbx 1/8th scaled buggy...and it just kicked ass...had to sell it because i just didnt run nitro anymore. go with the OFNA!

btw, make sure u have part support at your LHS.

A friend of mine just got into the hobby, and that's exactly what he got. So far, we replaced the steering servo, and added a rechargeble reciever battery. It still needs a new radio, the reciever that came with it doesn't seem to give the steering servo full power. It's alot better than the one that came with it though...the stock seering servo could barely turn the stinkin wheels! We upgraded to a JR 650, wich is great, but a 590 would do just fine. Anything with 100+ in oz of torque...

The only problem he's had so far, is the center shaft link to the rear diff slung the set screw. You just need to go through it, like any RTR, and tighten things down, and add lock tite to anything that spins.
