great great truggy fun and handles well. only thing i dont like about that truggy is that you can adjust the suspension pretty much at all. get ace servos work great or that truggy. and a jp3 is the best alaround pipe espeshaly for a os.

Run the kit tires that might work on 30% of tracks or don't include any, which most racers will have, that will work on the tracks they go to. Not a big deal in my books.

Kit tires are usually only good for one thing, breaking in engines on the road in front of the house.
