About to leave for another deployment to Afghanistan and before I leave I decided to get my son a brushless Stampede for Xmas. Well I was debating on getting a revo myself so we can race together and maybe get a track together before I leave. I really like that revo but I have never used one.
I do understand the difference between brushed and brushless and have been doing research on whether it would be nitro or battery at this point. However I do have concerns and questions.
How reliable are these things?
Can they easily be fixed? Meaning could the wife fix it while I am away if something happened.
Where can you get parts?
How do you know what parts they are?
What parts are worth upgrading or modding? (Seems to be a big deal)
Definitely looks like something that will satisfy a older guy like myself.
Thank you all in advance
