From what I understand, it is 2 versions behind the SP kit. Nothing is interchangeable at all....I was thinking of this myself, and slowly upgrading to the kit standard.

I would think a Slash would be better for an entry level RTR....unless you have a large 4WD turnout enough for novice class.

Unless it's just a electric class anything goes novice group.

eh... kinda. I haven't seen any noobs come from slash racing at our local track. If anything it promotes hacking. IMHO.

He's 8, I think he would be fine. Most places are mod 4wd anyways

yea, i think i will head in the direction of kyosho. a rtr kit for $209 is good. even the basic speed controller and motor is good for now. i can update later if need be. i would go b44 route, but im not feeling the saddle pack. im sure he will be in the kids class where anything goes. but if i can get that orion powered kyosho soon for a similar price, that would be good to.

how does this basic zx5 compare with the latest and greatest 4wd buggies out now?
