    Hi Tyler, I'm Mat. Also been out of the hobby for quite sometime, used to have 1/8th scales and 1/10th scales but since have sold it all off. Now all I have is a micro 1/20th that ive been working on. Were you previously registered under a different user name?

    Nothing came close to 1/8th scale in durability, handling and diversity really, they are just so costly to maintain. I don't recall that user name unfortunately.

    That was my losi 8T, tough as nails, and way faster than I could ever need. Its a pitty, sold the car and all my electronics without ever getting it up too top speed.

    Yea I haven't really been around recently so I'm totally out of the loop on what new rigs have come out. Plus side, electronics are super cheap. 1717 motors are less than 100$ now.

    Yeah im at least 5 years out of the loop. So ill probably just get a team associated sc10. I had one of those also and had a blast with it

    I'd only suggest to make sure there is part support still available. Im not familiar with the kit itself, but you wouldnt want to get stuck without the parts to keep you going.

    Yes i agree about parts support. I even checked the local hobby shop (45 min away) to see what parts they normally have in stock. Lots of traxxas and team associated

    I don't even have a LHS near me, the closest one (10 mins away) the owner left suddenly and shop closed down, everything else is nearing an hour and I'm not familiar with their merchandise. So I do any and all ordering from places like Amazon and eBay.
