Found it! In my opinion you can't expect much for a $200 nitro car. Low quality parts, not many distributors if any... I would go for traxxas 4tec 3.3

Don't do it,it will turn you away and throw away money with a name brand kit if you don't it you can sell it but you will never sell the other and can't get any money back

I would suggest you buy a good used car. Perhaps a Mugen MTX4, or an Xray NT1, or similar. Choose something you can get parts for, and something designed to be worked on.
