Hello all,

I'am a Ho slot car fan but since Brother-In Law purchased 2 RC trucks (1 Electric other gas) have to say they are a blast.

Now he just got these a few weeks ago and far from expert and simply went out and purchased.

What I'd like to know is what is a good overall RC Electric Truck out there for a novice? Would like to buy a kit that includes Control and is assembled.

He told me expect to pay at least $400+. I'd like to keep it more in the low $300's.

Thanks all,

Matt

go for a t4 factory edition rtr( brand new chaeck associateds website for details on it) or a xxx-t spec. those are good trucks that can be raced and can be competitive as well.

It depends on what you want to do with it. If it is for bashing around the yard, then I'd suggest a Traxxas E-Maxx. $300 plus batteries and charger (add another $100). If you plan on mainly running on surfaces that smoother (dirt and pavement) then an Associated T4 RTR or Losi XXX-T RTR. Both are about $250 and add another $100 for batteries and charger. One other choice is the DuraTrax Evader RTR. Cost is about $160 plus the $100 for batteries and charger.

All should be good trucks to start with.

Thanks for the replies folks.

Will probaly hold out for the Traxxas E-Maxx.

As if I get into it might as well go for it.

The DuraTrax Evader RTR did'nt look that bad thoe and might look at a bit more as just to get foot into door.

Thanks,

Matt
