That was my first truck. Lots of fun, pretty durable, quick out of the box.

Good electronics too, for an RTR you can't beat the Computer JR Radio.

Sounds like a good choice.

Its only got a 4300 in it!!! LOL Thats a joke for that price.
I could Buy a brand new xxx-t at my lhs and put a mamba max 7700 in there and it would 100 times better and still be cheaper

That is the Losi site, they always quote manufacturers suggested retail. Shop around and you should be able to do better. Start at horizonhobby.com and other sites.

Try to get it somewhere else. Horizon is still kinda of expensive compared to other places.

I would highly advise against getting that (This is just my opinion). The brushless is equivilant to like a 19t brushed... save your money and just get the regular brushed one, and get a mamba max 5700 (i say 5700 instead of 7700 because the 7700 cant take 3s lipo.. so the 5700 can acually be faser than the 7700 [>:]), it will be twice as fast (considering you have a worthy battery..) as the rtr brushless.

well the thing with me is that my dad (im only 14) wants me to quit the hobby []so he wouldnt want me buying something than right away buy a 200 motor for it lol. thats why i was thinking since this comes brushless like that it would be good bc it all comes together. a lil confusing lol
