Default Finally got my first real RC..but

I never really though off picking one up, but when i saw a lightning deal for the redcat blackout Pro xte for $150. I decided to pull the trigger.
I was really amazed at how fast this thing is. Im barley learning about these things, looking into upgrading the battery and tires.
but Then i saw the traxxas xmaxx. Dang, id like to get that! but $800!!..... i can get the money by feb and get it. It would be the last
RC i ever get says the wife if i do get it. What you do all think? or should i wait? Is it worth that? when you think about it thats how much a good
drone cost, are they made well? Thanks

its best if she just thinks to her self "well how much can those stupid little toy cars cost"

ha! right i know. actually when i got the redcat i told her i spent $70. For the traxxsa id say something like $170
which is probably what they should realistically be costing

The X-Maxx is the supreme bashing machine. If you want on road speed or a racing truck, look elsewhere. But if you want pure monster truck, go for the X-Maxx.
