Default pleAse help me,i'm caught in a dilemma!!!!

Hey what's up everyone, I'm kinda caught here in a dilemma and a problem.


Should i buy?

DuraTrax® Evader™ EP ST RTR $ 170

or

Traxxas Rustler with ESC $140


or


Team associated RC10T4 RTR $220



1) Why is it that RTR's are cheaper? Because when I researched the parts that they include, it's actually more expensive when I build the same thing with the kit. Is it because the companies buys those parts in bulk so they can get discount?

2) MY PROBLEM is, I really want to build a medium sized truck/buggy, but I don't want to spend more than $200. What can I do?

3) The assocaited T4 kit is available for $160. That's not bad. But the radio will $50, ESC $50, and motor $25. That's $285! I can buy a nitro truck RTR for that price. What can I do?

It depends. What are you going to be doing more, racing or bashing. All three are good for bashing. The Rustler is pretty durable for bashing and Im not sure about how the evader would take it but the T4 is up to the task. But if you plan to race it the RC10T4 is the best choice. Overall the T4 is the best truck. Get the RC10T4.

I know people who have all 3 trucks.

Evader: Somewhat fragile, it's an OKAY truck...
Rustler: This truck's pretty durable, adjustments aren't a convienience on some things..
T4: Pretty durable as well, adjustments = good. Nice peice of work. If you plan on just bashing, probably the Rustler or T4. If you plan on racing, go for the T4... If I was in your shoes, I'd go for the T4.. Almost all my cars are Associated, they're all excellent.
