I have heard decent reviews about electrix rcs. They are very entry level, which is good for some one trying to figure out if they like the hobby. I think all there models are like $120 and if I remember correctly they are fully RTR out of the box they even include AAs for the controller I think. and they should be backed by horizon hobbies and I think they have a few hop up parts. they are kind of like duratrax line of RCs just entry level decent but not anything to write home about.
Those trucks bash well because their built like wet noodles. Flexibility absorbs impacts and keeps them in one piece. Very entry level but perfect for a first R/C.
i had mine for seven months and not a thing broke on it except a bent hinge pin and i can keep up with guys using lipo and brushless. because i use the stock esc, a reedy 13x2 modified brushed motor and a reedy 6 cell 3800 nimh battery with panther super soft rear and medium soft fronts. the esc can handle up to 12 turn motors and 7 cell battery packs with 80 - 220 amps forward. pretty good for a beginner truck huh?
Yes, Electrix, Losi, Spectrum and Blade, Horizon Hobby is *the* distributer for them,
