I can think of a lot of other trucks I'd rather have for $600. It'll be like most other Tamiyas and be hard to get parts for.

I think it looks awesome. Its got a dogbone that connects the clutch to the pinion gear and they say it cuts down on stress...how it does this Im not sure.
Parts arent hard to find, theyre just not usually available at the LHS and have to be ordered.

I think its safe to say that most tamiya kits are of high quality and I bet the Nitrage is no exception. Your right about the price, if it came down 150 bucks Id buy it.

We had a customer come in to work (workin part time at LHS) cursing his one, fried some gears in that sealed transmission, walked out of the store with an XUT and other associated goodies...
