the associated 1/18 buggy,truck,truggy is a much better deal than the mini-t but the mini is a blast since its only two wheel drive and there are a tons of upgrades out for it. but for 20 bukcs more the ass. car comes with like battery for the car and a charger only need 8 AA for the radio and you on it. its 4 wheel drive which also could be fun to depending on what your doing with it. for a beggining driver the 4 wheel is better since it wont spin out as much.the kyosho mini inferno is good to but would have to buy a charger and a battery for the car just like with the losi, well the losi can run on four AA though but very slow with them. a good nimh pack for any of the cars is the way to go and the team ass. comes with one. should be able to get a team ass. for 189.00 to 199.00. maybe even a bit less brand new on ebay if your willing to look hard for one.

good luck

DONT BUY THE MINI INFERNO! its about the slowest car ever until u put some money into it..and get a BL. i say....check out ebay for awhile..and look for a xxx-t or if u can afford it...get a xxx-t BL rtr. otherwise...id go for the new rustler or stampede if she was just bashin around.
