Default Good Deal???

Hey guys, I bought a Traxxas nitro rustler about a year ago and decided to buy a on-road car. This is what i found, anyone know about this brand of car? Are they good, bad or just ok? It comes with a 2 speed and look decent for the price paid. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

Trust me on this spend the money on a good first car!

I would let this one go.

The NTC3 plus RTR is a good car maybe even an HPI.

What are your friends running? Make sure parts are easy to get too.

My friends have a Stampede one electric, one nitro. They cant touch my rusler, I dont want to spend a lot on a car, i just want something to drive around on the road and parking lots and have some fun. Most expensive cars cant touch my rusler anyways since i ported it out and hopped it up. It hit a top speed of 75mph on a 1 speed.

The problem with off brands is getting parts. They might be a really good deal, and they might even work well. But when somthing breaks, where are you going to get parts for it? Also, if you get somthing like a NTC3 or an HPI then it will have more resale value.

Don't waste your time you are getting 1/2 the car for that price the chasis is very weak the motor is crap look into to getting a tc3 or better the parts support @ the lhs are there all these no names cars have any support @ the lhs so most of it is done online

Default 75mph?

I don't think so. Here in La we drag race those trunks with top of the line novarossi motor and trust me they don't run 75 mph. As a matter of fact i have a serpent 835 with a .21 motor and at 300ft on a timing system it only runs 75mph. I could be wrong if you guys are runinnig 450ft, may you could reach that speed but i doubt it. Besides all the guys runinng the rustler trashed them and everyone runs the lighter RC 10.
