Default Thinking about getting back into nitro

Hey guys,

It's been a while since I've owned a nitro rc, and I've owned many. I moved on to brushless a few years back but have been somewhat out of rc for the past year. I'm thinking about getting back into it.

Basically, what I'm looking for is a cheap UN-ASSEMBLED buggy/truggy. I don't want a RTR as I'd love to put it together myself. However, this is pretty much all I've found:


Correct me if I'm wrong but Ansmann never screamed quality to me, maybe they've changed?

Are there any better options for me?

Also, if I went with the Ansmann, what engine should I get for it? There are so many .21s to choose from. Or should I just stick with it's stock engine? I'm a top-speed guy, so should I go for a 3-port engine?


Hobbyking have one option but thats as much as I could find.


My budget is probably around 220 altogether for both the car and engine/pipe.

I'm not looking for anything top notch, just something I can drive around in the park when I have free time. Probably won't look after it tooo carefully

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated!
