If you do get a rtr, the xxx-s would be a great car. The sealed drivetrain is good for parking lots and it is durable car.
Losi just released a updated version of the xxx-s rtr with a novak 15t limit esc and a 19t trinity motor. It also has a very good radio for a rtr and the new alfa body looks pretty good.
