    Don't waste your money. Aluminum is completely unnecessary. When bashing the buggy you'll want RPM for the flex. I've had the STRC and Traxxas parts and have bent more than my fair share of them.

    Same Here... TCP and SRT.

    I really wish I was smart enough not to let those go back in the day. Both were mint with tons of spare parts.

    Take G-Rustlers advise.

    Gear the truck down and let him run it until he's tired of it.

    I'd go with a VXL Slash for the little guy if he want's something like your truck.

    Otherwise it's hard to beat a Pede if he just wants to bash around in a field.

    Find a cop in an empty parking lot somewhere and have him point the radar at your car.

    They like to play with their toys and much as we like to play with ours.

    I was running and 18T pinion. I don't remember the spur. Maybe 87 or 90.

    $150 for a used XL5 is insane. Check out Ebay or Craigslist. $100 max and that should be a complete runner with a battery in really nice shape. I've seen and bought VXL's for $160 in nice shape.
