comes with gyro tenbol mount and 3500kv velineon motor with heatsink and fan

My concern is that the VXL 3M esc is not really up to the task of powering the big motor on 3S... when I had my KB Rally it was the ESC that got hot faster than the motor did... but, the rest of the car is very nice and the lipos are a nice addition. You need to remember, you can buy a stock KB rally from tower for $250 shipped in the US... then buy some lipos for about $20 each (or less for cheap ones) and youll have a brand new car... $350 plus shipping is a bit of a stretch for this car IMO.

I agree with pave. And for what it's worth I prefer the traxxas bb mount over the tenbol

That is a HUGE price for what your getting... he says "fully built" but its just a big block rally with some aluminum bits... honestly, Id rater NOT have the aluminum arms... there are some good things in there but he doesnt list bearings for the rockers or steering, RPM carriers... a number of other things that are MORE important than a bunch of integy bling... the motor/esc is nice but not worth the extra price IMO... if you look around on the forums you can find better deals that these ones.

I would rather start with a stock car than that one
