Post ECX Ruckus

Hey guys!
What are the thoughts out there on the ECX Ruckus for a beginner. I've heard that it's relatively fast and easy to take care of and maintain/change parts. It would be my first hobby grade so it's within my price range as well. Any thoughts on this truck or any other recommendations would be appreciated.

I just got a Ruckus, I've only run three packs thru it but so far I love it. It's my first RC so I'm as new as it gets. It's going to take some getting used to but I'm a speed freak so I've already ordered lipo batteries and a 3900kv motor and esc. I plan to upgrade as I break parts but research says that won't be very often.

Hi All - I just bought my 7 year olds each a Ruckus 1/18. I read how bad the charger is as well as the stock battery. I am new to RC but I have read good things about the Onyx 245 charger for speed and the Nicd 5000 MaH battery for run times. Do these seem like good upgrades? I am afraid of Lipo. Thank You
