Yo i have no idea what truck that is but you should of looked into it a little bit more you probably should of got a t4 or xxxt cr but it doesnt matter when you first start out when you start racing competitively you might want to get one of those trucks. the best batteries are the orion sho 4200 they work amazing and they are very realiable.. have fun and enjoy this hobby...

he is just a rookie. Getting a rtr in a sportsmen class is the best wall to go.

correct, as he might want to consider moving to the next class up? a new truck would be needed most likely to stay competitive.

yes, you are moving in the good direction.
