what do you mean, I'll probably get a Traxxas ready to run something or other first. If I want to start building would choose the Tamiya Stadium Blitzer

you know, that's not a bad idea.


The battery life has come a long way, and a lot of people are getting like 30-45 minute run times when properly configured with battery.

Haven't really looked into Nitro, but I should probably explore that option

I thought it was going towards their tuition, room and board, and meals. So you're saying they weren't fiscally conservative?
