It's a sick truck. My first MT race ever with it, I won the A Main - and trust me it was not b/c of my driving (was in the B main in expert truggy that day). It is dialed. The only thing I would say is drive a hard bargain on the price. With the interest in the MT class dying, you can get some great deals on revos.

+1, best race Revo ever pre-built and dialed out of the box.

I bought a platinum unfortunately I changed out servos and the 3.3 motor

the only PITA about it is the starter box. If you change motor, rotostart might be worth looking at because cranking a tight new motor with a box on that chassis is a real PITA

overall it is a nice ride, once you break the 3.3 in its not a bad motor either, mine was pretty snappy
