See everyone is saying buy a kit so you know how to put it together. Trust me with a RTR you WILL take it apart many times to do general maintenance, cleaning and fix broken parts. So dont believe for one minute a kit is the only way your going to learning to build or take part.

I would go rtr for your first its cheaper easier to get going and you can atleast find out if you like the hobby before you get frustrated with a bad build

In my opinion, the best kits do need to be assembled. That trend is changing though. But still, get familar with your ride people

I guess I'm just o'l school like that.
