I guess the price is what got you looking at it. Yea, this hobby can burn up the dough, but, you got to spend it on something. So sure, get it. It's not junk and in the right hands can be a winner. Plus if nitro starts bumming you out it's easy to convert to batts. One of the first things you need is a steering servo up-grade. And don't play around with it(the servo) get a strong one. Next, a better radio. And you don't need to go WFO every where, take it easy till you got skills, 'cause when it breaks, and it will, digging up parts is no fun. Go to track and talk to everyone and learn. Remember, the peeps at the lhs can help but they need to pay the bills, so make friends at the track. And don't come on here and start bitchin' 'cause it broke 'cause we WILL rake you thru the coals untill you"get it". Get good tools and work on it, thats half the fun. Most of all HAVE FUN.
