Try the workbench in your garage....sorry for the remark but seriously too many people spend their money on this stuff but could never change the oil in their car. These trucks require lots of attention. We all need help from time to time, doesn't matter how much experience you have. But you can't own one of these trucks with the intention of having a hobby shop fix it every time it breaks. You would never get to use it, it would be at the hobby shop every week. So I guess what I was trying to say is if your just trying to find out where you could get some help and parts now and then, that's cool. If you truly are scared to learn how to replace the differential gears or adjust carb needles to get the engine to run right, this hobby is not for you.

Agreed. These things really are simple to work on, the most complicated thing probably being tuning the engine which you'll need to do every time you drive the thing. Things are going to break, bend and wear out. You should plan on a repair of some sort practically every time you drive it.

Not with the MT you will not need to tune the engine every time you dive it its a 2 stroke engine not a nitro so once you have the engine tuned you will be pretty much good on no more tuning. and they are way more durable then any 1/8 scale redcat sells. But yes you will come out alot better to fix them yourself they are not hard at all especially with the 5th scales because you are working with larger parts and there is more room to work then if you were working on an 8th scale.
