well it will be alright. If you can get duratrax parts easy. Another good one to look at is the associated rc10gt rtr plus. It has everything except batteries and gas.

Anyone that has the overdrive ST - when they post they like the car. it is just not popular. It is usually looked at for beginners. i think he will be very happy.

If your local hobby store does not have parts. You can always get anything for that truck from

Does your LHS actually have the parts or do they have to order them? My lhs doesn't carry any parts from Duratrax so the have to order it in and it takes 7 days. I don't need the parts though because I never broke anything......

The owner of the LHS is a friend of mine...he say that if he didnt carry a particular part he could and would get anything i needed in a couple of days and from then on start carrying it in stock...
