When it comes to body's that's in the owners opinion whatever style you want get and so on, I myself am looking for a new body seeing that mine is starting to crack everywhere due to wheelies, jumps etc. and plus I like to paint my own things it expands the hobby IMO and a good thing to learn
TLR Ten-SCTE 2.0
Revo 2.5, SlashVXL, Stampede, RC18T
We most all think that what we have is the best to buy. So, here's my pitch 2WD Slash/brushless/liPo; the model number your looking for is 5807L. I bought mine from Ultimate Hobbies.
The models under $125 are most all micro programmers with a laptop power supply inside a specified case. Duratrak has the Onyx, Gens Ace has the iMars, Traxxas has the Hitec. These can all be bought for around $75.
ALL of the above three sell comperible batteries. They all come with a Traxxas plug connector EXCEPT the one that is arguably the best value; the Gens Ace. 5000mAh 2S 25C is the most common battery to buy.
Get a Slash 4x4 and some Trenchers, makes for a great basher
