Get the EVO if you go RTR. Otherwise get the SS. The SS comes with the larger and more powerful engine and beefed up drivetrain parts. The EVO comes with the rotostart system and the SS has a standard pull start.

Now you just need to decide which you want. EVO less power and standard drivetrain parts, but comes with rotostart and radio for a good price. The SS comes with beefed up drivetrain, bigger motor, but no rotostart and you get to choose your own radio. I don't think you can go wrong either way. If you continue on with RC the SS is the better choice because you can buy a better radio and use it in your future cars.

now just wondering are there any people that also drive off-road? cause now i am at a dilema, wether to stay on off-road, or make the switch to on-road. i really like off-road and i just want some people's opinions.

i more like the looks and the low profile of on road cars. Plus i plan to do more on road then offroad so therfore i rather take the on-road. Ill get an offroad later wen i get money, but now im just looking at getting an on-road

get the hpi .18ss. i think the engine may be the only difference, but you want to build your 1st car if possible.
