Default Are there any RC kits that come with everything?

I'm pretty new to this hobby, Are there any kits out there that require assembly and also come with all the electronics that you need?

No. Most kits are meant to be raced and most racers have electronics that they prefer or moved from their old car. Too many options available to make a "one size fits all" car kit.

Best advice is to get a Mechanical speed controler not these electronic ones they all talk about...

Even RTR (Ready-To-Run) vehicles don't come with everything you need. You'd still need batteries, charger, etc. Also, the electronics that most RTRs come with are pretty low quality. If you plan on racing, the RTR motor may not be legal in the class you want to run.

This one comes with everything including a battery and charger:

there are many tracks that run a Cyclone S spec class where you must run the battery, esc and motor included in the kit.

I think he's looking for kit though. I think the cyclone comes assembled.
