buy the MT racer (trust me on this one I have a MT)
get a good engine and good electronics and you will be set for long hours of fun.

DO NOT GET THE KIT OR RTR! the more you spend now is A LOT less in the long run.

The first Nitro I bought was a NMT. My son also has one. Although the NMT racer has a lot of option parts, I found that half the fun of going nitro is upgrading the truck. My son has the slipper clutch on his, and he keeps striping spur gears. I have the stock spur gear and it is working great. The racer does come with MIP CVDs, however I only run CVDs on the rear. The front kept breaking. I would go with the NMT, Great truck.

I will agree some of the fun is in upgrading but that is big $$$! It is easier to get stuff that you wont have to/want to replace soon after you buy the truck.

they are all basicly the same

just depends what you want to spend your money on and when.

If I had to do it over again I would buy a MT racer and get nice parts to start with OR personally I would buy used and get all the common hop ups and the truck for a cheaper price.
