no brand name in title=bad idea. you'll have no parts support whatsoever, unless it's a clone. clones are typically bad as well, cuz they'll break and you have to replace everything with genuine parts making it actually cost more!

Look for a brand name out there, HPI, Associated, Xray, stuff like that. You can put whatever body you want on any of them, and LEDs too if thats your thing. Main thing is replacement parts, when you break something, because you will sooner than later. Trust us on that.
