My my my how much has technology changed in the R/C world! Hello to all, I just signed on this fantastic board and cant wait to get my new toy in the mail next week I ordered a Tekno MT410 due to its fantastic reviews and build process. Alot more fun to build and learn then to buy a RTR in a box IMO. I have ALOT to learn! So much has changed! Powerful motors, powerful batteries, unbelievable. I have a budget and do not want to go crazy for the time being.. So countless forum searches and watching you tube it looks like the following is a decent combo for the money?

Hobbywing EZRun Max8 Waterproof Brushless ESC/Motor Combo (2200kV).
(2) Floureon 4500mah 6s batteries
alm steer horn
Not sure about tires and wheels. biggest possible

I dont want to beef up any other parts on the truck, when and if they break then I will. I am hoping to build this under $1k

thanks everyone! Cant wait!

good choice on the kit, and hobby wing products are very popular.

just make sure to pick up a radio, servo, charger, and paint for the body.
and... tools. i recommend MIP, really the best.

Wow, you're not messin' around, are ya! There's really nowhere to go from that kit. It's pretty much the crème de la crème of the basher world. You will surely be spoiling yourself right out of the gate. It's gonna be hard to be impressed with much else once you've owned the Tekno. I wouldn't advise going too big on the tires though. It becomes very hard to drive with too much rotating mass on such a short wheelbase vehicle. Original Pro-line Badlands seem to work well on that rig. Anything bigger gets pretty hard to manage, IMO. That Hobbywing system will be great, although I prefer Castle Creations myself. A Mamba Monster 2 2200kv combo would be my vote. One other thing to mention is make sure you get a strong servo to control that beast. Something with 300oz or more should get the job done. Welcome (back) to the hobby, and be sure to take your time and enjoy the build!

That is great you are buying a kit and building it. You will learn a lot by doing that. I just got into rc racing 2 yrs ago and was over whelmed on how much its changed since I was a kid.

Tekno's are top notch IMO. Very durable and easy builds. Invest in a power screw driver for the build!
