Default Where should I go with this?

I'm want to get into racing, but I want a truck. I would think that the truck would be a little bit heavier, but yet again I could always add better internals... BUTMONEYISANISSUE!I'm confused on what I want!Do you guys have suggestions on where to start?

Here ya go...


It's difficult to race competitively for cheaper than this. This car comes with a 2.4Ghz radio, brushless motor and speed control, it's ready to go out of the box, and the 2wd short course class is very popular, you will get plenty of races. Also, the racing is fun, since the trucks have covered wheels, there's more contact. All you need is batteries and a charger. I'd suggest these...

Get two or three of these... http://www.hobbypartz.com/77p-sl5000...-hardcase.html
And this to charge them... http://www.hobbypartz.com/73p-t680-charger.html

You'll need a car battery or a 12v power supply (an old PC power supply will do for the house, use your car battery at the track, or take the power supply with you if the track has power).
