Re: RC Suggestions

Ok, ive been lookin around and relize my chances of finding a good rc for under 100 is almost nil let alone 4wd. So im looking at the traxxas stampede. Is it good for running around and is it basically pretty easy to build? (im 14 but like to make things lol)

Re: RC Suggestions

It's a great truck but like you said your chances of finding one under a hundred bucks are about nill, you can always chack Ebay though, good luck. BTW Losi, associated, Tamiya, Schumacer, Mugen and HPI also make excelent quality vehicles.

Re: RC Suggestions

The stampede is a great truck for a first time buyer/driver. If you get a chance pick up the latest issue or Radio Controlled Car Action. It has a shootout of 2 wheel drive trucks.

Also check out this Message board for some great info and great people.

Re: RC Suggestions

Traxxas is a good company that builds tough vehicles. They make their stuff pretty good. Its not indestructible, but very tough. Now if you want to race competively, it might be best to start with someting else, but if you are just starting out, traxxas is a safe bet either way.
