Default Coming back

I tried searching for a good answer to this question, but couldn't find anything. I used to race trucks about 10 years ago, but have been out of the loop since then. I don't have any of my trucks or anything anymore, so I am looking for a new truck. I definitely want to go with nitro. I'd like some suggestions at some entry level kits that aren't too expensive, have upgrade potential for the future, and that are good quality. I don't want anything prebuilt, or something that'll break real easy. Thanks in advance for your help.

try to keep an open mind towards what people suggest. Look at their sigs first, and then their avatar... more than likely they are a representative to the company. They'll push product like crazy

since alot of people think that a person driving for a company pushes their products i will give you a list of different trucks to look at and i dont endorse anything that i dont think is quality.

OCM
Mugen
Losi 8t
Cen
jammin
these are the ones i would like at for price and quality and support i know for a fact you will get A+ support with OCM.

stadium truck
Associated GT2
Losi Adam Drake

lol not every sponsored driver only pushes there sponsored product...a good sponsored driver will help out people with any product the person owns, wants, or are in the price range for...

so my first question is what is your price range???

I'd probably stay away from OCM like there is no tomorrow. The last that time that I saw one it was junk. That was this summer, so maybe they have changed some of there manufacturing problems, but if you are looking for bang for your buck look at the Caster Cars. Try this link
www.teamcasterracing.com. I run a factory car and it is great. Very stable and fast. Good Luck!
