    the ready to run model comes with everything you need. You can run a lipo battery but it wont have a cut off so you have to be careful, otherwise a nimh would be plenty.

    I went to the site and it says all you need is batteries. I don't know if it's for the remote and the truck or just one. Scroll to where it shows a big "TR" and it tells you there.

    lol nice...basically if ur just new to it, but some nimh batteries..and a cheap charger...if you want to go lipo for more power and longer run times, buy a rooster crawler esc for the trail honcho...amazing power and lipo ready, then 2 2S 5000 Mah batteries and a run o the mill charger...$200 later your basically set

    I don't believe the honcho TR comes with a charger,i run a venom 5000 mah battery in mine and a get decent run times.
    as far as a charger im using a piranha peak charger,there are a few on ebay right now for around 60 bucks.Its both nicad and nimh compatable.

    id get the rtr, and ya i agree with mossy, venom lipos are awesome, that or turnigy.. but then you need a lipo charger, which if you find the right one, isnt too expensive

    you should be able to get a nimh charger for $30
