Get a Losi. Why Not.

As long as the box has the word TEAM on it, it's a racer.

I'm one of the few who isnt biased by a manufacturer. I like the Associated RC10T4 (10th scale) and the Losi 8ight (8th scale). I have a Spectrum radio and am running a Novak System on my T4. I've ran Novaks 10.5, 8.5, 7.5Light, and the 5.5Light.
I suggest you upgrade the front A-arms using RPM arms. I would also use titanium turnbuckles and RPM ball cups. Quick release rear hubs are a nice hop up. I have them but have yet to install em.

We were all new to the hobby once. Have fun

I never really got the need for a quick release rear hub.....how long does it really take to take off the 1 bolt.....

Then have the pin fall out....

Then have to look for the pin.....

....give up looking for the pin and cut a body clip to replace the pin.....




at least it's cheaper to replace the pin than 10 sets of rear rims.....

Typically I just run the truck 1/2 throttle, and dunk the back half of the truck in the water cleaning barrel the track has.

Spray everything down with WD40 when your done, and good to go.....

The truck is 1/2 under water, so you just get bubbles at the surface.
