If you haven't got anything yet you need the truck, I got a buggy not knowing anything about nitro and as you know here In Tennessee you need something with clearance so I converted my buggy into a Truggy a Tsunami which did cost more then the Tsunami it's self but thats in part of the aluminum upgrades I added, but you need to get the truck for what your wanting

A Duratrax Overdrive ST. Its has aluminum fronts, two bodys , and an assortment of other parts. Just replaced heatsink, head gasket, and head button. Carb leaks a little, the spur gear is stripped, and its missing a drive cup, but will replace or fix EVERYTHING that has problems.

Its a good little truck and I never ran it hard. It just needs a more experienced handler plus its a stadium truck so its not the best for these parts!
