Just for bashing? If you got the bread then go for it! I love that thing, i just don't have the cash to shell out for that. I went with HPI Sprint 2 Drift. Great Chassis For the Price, Ready-to-Run, decent amount of modifications can be done. Post some pics and vids if you get it!

I think it looks like a great car. It is just a little pricey

I would rather have too much flex, than too little. Its not a high end racing buggy! I would expext the shocks to suck. Never had good hpi shocks.
