Thanks Norman. The main reason I'm looking at the RJ Speed is because a friend has it, is not using it, and will let it go for next to nothing. It needs some work that would require buying parts, and...

It's best to do your first body in one color. That gets you used to the idea of how it works. The body will come with masks to cover the window openings so you don't paint them. Any hobby shop will...

BL= Brushless. Brushed is probably where you want to be for drifting, and they'll last just fine. Mine is 6 years old and has had PLENTY of abuse. But one thing to keep in mind - If you want speed,...

That's definitely a respectable route. But the work is the fun part, right? I personally like to save $25, and have a brand new truck with a shiny new body better. Granted I'll have that shiny new...
