I've see RTR slash's with batteries and charger for $100-$135 on the classifieds here on RCTECH. Just watch there.

They won't come brushless or with lipo's for that price, but for home fun the price is hard to beat.

Hmmm then why do you have a Ultima SC in your sig??? Be real, they struck out with the Strike, even they know it.

Being an owner of 2 Strike(outs), I can verify, they suck more ass then what you would see at a feltching party.

Bought a used Blitz and now I am up to 3 of them. They are great for bashing/racing and are super easy to work on. You can't go wrong with a Blitz.

I think people might have gotten a little off topic. He want's to use it for.. Cul-de-sac use.

Just saying that a $115 strike should be okay

Can't go wrong with a slash like folks said. It's RTR with a charger (be it a crappy one), 7-cell NiMH battery and 2.4ghz remote.

However, Associated's SC10 RTR kit is less expensive ($259.99 from amaiinhobbies.com) Nice truck, brushless 3300kv I believe and 2.4 remote. It does not come with any battery or charger.

If you are a member of towerhobbies super saver club thing you get coupon codes in your email. I think it costs like $10 to join the club thing for a year but i got a coupon for $50 off any order over $250. I used that coupon code and a free shipping deal they had going and got the SC10 BRUSHLESS shipped to my door for $229 Just something to consider

Have you owned one? They strip the idler gear like it was plastic. The turnbuckles suck, the shock ends break easily and parts are hard to come by.

You know why they are so cheap? Because they can't get rid of them fast enough.
