Thumbs down

Sure, minus the motor and esc. I'd change the shocks as well because they aren't easily adjustable. The stock am radio is junk and there is a ton of slop in the steering. Actually, other than the tires and maybe the body shell, it's not really that well suited for VTA... or any other racing class.

here in Nashville 90% of the 40+ VTA racers raced this car, minus the esc/motor...

I would check with your club and see what rules you are running 1st....if they allow newbies to the class to run whatever, get some rpm turnbuckles and ball cups....

when you step up to swap out the esc/motor...I would recomend getting the Novak 25.5 system....

or you could get this....and swap out the esc/motor when it goes bad...
