Default What brand to buy?

I'm looking at buying a rolling chassis. I want AWD. I also want to know if any rollers come with brushless ready tranny's. I looked at a few on ebay, used ones, and noticed they are about 100 bucks for a roller, but i dont know what brands are good, and which ones i should stay away from.

associated tc5, tamiya, xray are probably the best choices, get a belt drive

If you are just getting into TC AWD cars, you may want something a bit durable but doesnt break the piggy bank. There are cars such as the Hot Bodies Cyclone S, Tamiya TA05/TB02 series, Associated, and Losi cars. Losi is the only one that comes to mind with a BL system already installed. If you want something cheep to start with, Tamiya USA is blowing out TB02 kits for $85, but require building and all necessary electronics.

I agree with not home. Belt drive is the way to go. Any T1 Xray is great for a beginner, very durable and will handle any brushless with ease. The Xray website offers the best support services bar none. http://forum.teamxray.com/
The T2 Xrays are not as durable for a beginner and not as cheap.

also what you want is the part availiability, if you break it you want a place to have that part thats broke in stock, see whats in and what might be in because i wouldnt want to be frustrated with a new car that you cant fix!
