Well, I'm going to buy a Shockwave soon, and I'm going to eventually upgrade the engine to something better then the stock tornado engine. So I'm guessing that I would save some money going with the shockwave, since I'd probably upgrade the tornado engine anyways. So would it be better to go with the shockwave and upgrade, or to get a tornado and run the stock engine?

honestly it would just be better to get the hurricane and not bothering upgrading the shockwave. Unless your new to nitro and never had one.

I have the shockwave and the tornado bb. The shocks on the tornado are 100 times better than on the shockwave. They actually have compression domping unlike the shockwave which is way too bouncy. Plus, the tornado bb is a 2 speed transmission and its ALOT faster than the shockwave when in 2nd gear. You wont be disappointed.
