nothign wrong with that truck. if you want a good truck for on and off-road thrashing that will handle good on both, thats probly a good one to get. i would personally go with a nitro rustler just because im a huge traxxas fan and have never had a bad one. but thats a good truck. im sure you wont be disapointed.

i was seriously thinking about gettin that truck but then i got caught up in the revo and just like streetracer745 im a BIG fan of traxxas. and they do have mods for it. go to the HPI site and there is the MT 2 SS it comes with a .18 and it FLYS. im pretty sure that you can put the .18 in the MT 2 with no problem.

yea, sounds like they only allow 2wd's. a 4wd will easily outhandle a 2wd. the XXX-NT is a great race truck but wont stand up to bashing like an MT2 will. but it has alot of optional parts available. hope you enjoy your new truck!
