If this is your first hobby-level R/C, make sure you break in the new engine correctly. Ragging the engine right out of the box will lead to disaster and you'll end up at a local hobby shop trying to get your engine fixed or replaced. A fail-safe unit works wonder for Nitro R/Cs also.

Thanks for the reply, I have been looking at different trucks for months trying to figure out what one would be the best to go with. I have a friend that has been into R/C for 10 years and he told me that you can't go wrong with a Traxxas. Good models and great costumer supprt. I know that there are going to be many times when I get frusterated with it, but the hobby can be so rewarding too. Plus just seems fun to be able to drive a r/c 40+.
