Default XTM GRIZZLE? or FG MT? OR FIREHAMMER?

I dont know which to get, my local hobby shop has the XTM Grizzly in stock for $919. all i need is servos and radio, is it worth ordering a FG MonsterTruck for $1099? is there really that much difference? or should i just get the firehammer? It looks like XTM Grizzly parts are pretty easy to get.. please help :-)

Thanks

A little bit more money at the beginning is worth itself in the long run..

Best price online is [link=http://www.thehobbysuperstore.com/inside/store/index.php?cat=377]here[/link]. Less than anywhere from $100 to over $500 less than the other dealers.

If your looking for a MONSTER, truck or beetle then FG is your choices. But if your thinking rail buggy, I would wait for the HPI MB5.
I had a Firehammer, which I really liked especially for $600 but this new HPI looks much better. Course it gonna costs more.

Gas power is so dependable.

I agree with 34Ford, plus with HPI you get the radio & servos for the price. It is RTR, plus you can"t beat the looks. The long travel suspension will be a big plus.
