None really, most crawlers are home made.

You can buy chassis kits which comes with a chassis, links, shocks, etc., but youll still have to buy axles, wheels, tires, and electronics seperately.

As for pricing. Axles are about $75 on ebay. Complete set of tires/wheels about $75-100, chassis kit, about $200+++. Or you can build a chassis from scratch for about $30.

Then youll still need an ESC 1-2 servo's, a receiver, and 1-2 motors.

Ive got about $200 into my crawler so far, if you want I can post pics tonight so you can get an idea of how far the money goes.
