I just discovered the kyosho ultima sc truck and it looks good for the price-
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...t-Course-Truck
With a discount it's $163! It looks like a good solid truck... Is this a good first truck? Maybe for some racing as well? I've never owned hobby grade rc. I was looking at sc10 but way too much for me(ATM)... Could it race in stock class with the G20 t brushed motor?

i STRONGLY suggest not buying the RTR that you are looking at.....its nothing compared to the real scr. Buy a used SCR and some used electronics if you want the best bang for your buck....

you would need to do a lot of upgrades to get the truck up to its full potential.. but if its oyur first rc grade vehicle it really is a good truck. if you go this route you will definitely need to upgrade shocks to atleast the velvet shocks which you could probably find for under $100 and the the cvds.. those would be my first 2 upgrades and you would be close to $320.

personally the kyosho can be a better product. i dont understand why they stopped production so early before the release of whatever they are working on. if i where buting a new sc i would get the kyosho and upgrade it.. its that much better imo

+1, I don't know why I ever sold mine! Get the SC/R! Big bores or not, still a better truck than everything else out there right now!
Yes I own a 22SCT....

I couldn't agree more. DO NOT BUY RTR. much better getting a used top of line truck. Trust me, from experience.

Ordered the big bores to replace my powerstroke shocks , and I also ordered the avid springs set but I read that they are to short for the rear . So Is there a spacer I can use , Im just not trying to buy a bunch of kyosho springs and only use 1 set it just sounds like a waste of money .

By the time you upgrade the RTR so can survive the rigors of racing (or even fun running) you'd end up having more invested than had you bought the SC-R from the get go. Even if you don't get one with the bigbore shocks, the cost of the hinge pin braces and hubs and other alloy bits and pieces can add up quickly.

How much does a used-good condition scr cost? If I could find one around the $200 mark.... I could afford that.(sooner or later )

Also. Is the parts on the sc and scr compatible with each other?

I have seen scr's below 200 and then I have seen scr-sp's above the 200 mark. The sp's that I have seen have the big bore shocks on them and everything else is gun metal/brown looking in color. It all depends on what extras come with them.

For parts compatibility, you can go from scr to sc but I wouldn't take parts off of a sc and put them on a scr since they use different thread pitch/type of screws.
