Default Associated RB10 RTR

Have they started shipping the RB10 RTR yet. I'm in the market for a 1/10 buggy and the price of this one is pretty attractive. I don't compete but I like driving at the local track with my Slash 4x4 VXL. I'm also considering getting an RC10B6.3D for the fun of building it and then adding electronics over time to spread out the cost. Thought? Comments?

I always say companies try to get their RTRs to an attractive price point. But, you gotta look at what you get for the electronics chosen for you verses what you would buy to put in to a kit. RTR electronics are usually rock bottom ~ mediocre at best.

I wish Team Associated would go back to offering RC kits as the norm. The RB10 would be a perfect RC if a person had an option to build it themselves. If you have any inkling of building a kit, I say go for it!

Thanks for they reply. I ended up buying the B6.3D kit and all electronics so I can compete in the stock buggy class. Started the build yesterday!
