Um blitz inst brushless but its a great truck. Easy to work on. Not allot of maintance. Durable but for a-arms. Stock servo is crap. Stock setting is crap, you need to adjust the servo saver in order to get some turning. Rims are nice, tires are long lasting. Its ready for any brushless system. Stock suspension set up is quit nice. Brushed esc burst in flames on my 2nd run. Melted the esc and everything. Brushed motor is fast for its mechanical aspect. Body does get weak over time. It thins out in some of the edges. Really only things that are bad are things that can be adjusted with the including tools, and parts.
