Default Sprint 2 Flux?

Imma be gettin' $300 soon and Im torn between getting a 1/118 offroad truck or a 1/10 onroad car.


Is the Sprint 2 Flux any good?

Also, I hate Mustangs so where can I get a new body that fits it? And what size?

The Sprint 2 is a race-worthy car and should be reasonably durable. If you do plan on racing the Sprint 2, make sure that the motor/speed control combo that comes with the Flux will be legal for the track/class.

Check out HPI for their body selection-(http://www.hpiracing.com/hpibodies/). If you aren't a Ford fan, they also have a Camaro and 'Cuda body if you want run old school. You can even buy a pre-painted 'Cuda body.

So for $310 its a good vehicle?

I have the E-Firestorm Flux and that thing flies so this should be just as good.

if you plan on racing it make sure you get the ball diff option part. The gear diff tends to unload in a funny way under alot of power and funky throttle control.

Hey guys im thinking of getting one too, do any of you know if it would last if I drove it on slightly rough ground/tarmac? e.g. like the road.

I have one! It is FULLY UPGRADED. What are your plane with the car? Are you going to build a T/C or a Trans Am??

I have mine build for the T/A class. I do say, You should pick up the Front one Way diff.
