Doesn't seem like a bad price but they don't make them anymore so parts might be hard to come by.

You can get parts on ebay really easily.

If you think you can get parts easily I don't see why not but IMO I would get a MGT for $25 more.

I think its a good deal for an Aftershock. There are still plenty of LST chop shops on ebay and when did they discontinue the AS??? The LST platform is virtually the same from the AS to the XXL. All u really need to do is convert it to a LST2 or a XXL if you like the stretched look or just rock it as is.

I say pick it up!

I wouldn't get the aftershock based on the guys feedback being limited .

I'd buy it for $200. You can part it out and sell it then buy a savage.

I'm a big Losi MT fan - but not the Aftershock.. Thin arms, 14mm hexes, a bushing instead of a bearing in the 2-speed, and on and on.. It can be a good starter truck on a budget, but ultimately I really think you need to up it to LST2/XXL specs.. Beefier arms, hubs, shafts, cups, etc etc.. I dunno', I guess it could be a good truck. I hate the idea of those heavy-axx tires with 14mm hexes though.. At least a 17mm conversion with some other(lighter) tires maybe...
