the best advice i could give you is to see what most guys are running at your local track and what brand your local hobby shop is carrying.to have parts support is essential and running the same car as most at the local track save u trouble setup-wise.to me,any brands that makes it to the Worlds are good,be it Serpents,Xrays,Mugens,Capricorns,Shepherds,KMs or the new boys Hot Bodies/HPI.good luck choosing!

Thats what I would get, all the options come in the box. No need to buy lightweight parts, they are already included in the kit. Its also the latest release, so they wont be coming out with an all new car for a while.

My two cents.... Consider Serpent 747 or Capricorn.

In my country Serpent is the way to go.

HSP Gladiator 1:10 Scale RC Nitro is the breathtaking and even more powerful Truggy model. The fusion of buggy and truck with an awesome set of wheels! The Gladiator is packed full of function, making it one of the top Truggies on the market. The 0.18-engine and two-speed automatic transmission makes it extremely fast.
