Here are a few links on a few trucks.... Use the code (016R4) by Nov 30th and spend another $5 to get $50 off the price of the T4.

Oh yes they are slow, May be a copy but you can literally bend the plastic on the shock towers 20deg with your fingers. Tires are terrible. etc. can go on and on.

Junk.

Can't go wrong with a T4 RTR, the parts are cheap, plentiful (depending on the Hobby Shop), easy to fix and upgradeable. If your son finds out he likes his truck, you could always buy a radio/esc/servo from the For Sale Section and upgrade as you see fit.

Although, your 200 bucks will get eaten up buying the misc parts that will break!

With the duratrax you can. He will be spending more time and money on the evader. Get the T4 you will love it. AND dont get the duratrax you will have nothing but problems.

Nothing personal against the Evader, but my friend bought one of those awhile ago and on the first jump, the front a-arm broke. He fixed that and on the next jump, the other side broke. After he fixed that, the front shock tower broke. It went on and on. Finally, he got a B4........

But for 130 bucks you can't go wrong, but like the old saying goes you can't polish a turd.

Not sure, when I ordered mine, it looked mint, there was maybe a slight scratch on the bottom of the rear shock tower, other than that, you couldn't even tell it wasn't brand new... The chassis looked brand new, body brand new, tires looked brand new, everything...

Not like you can warranty it after you start throwing all your parts on it anyway
