Nitrorcx is the best in most peoples opinion. Brushed tacon's are on sale for like $110 and you can get a great $90 charger for $40 and then pick up some 3s LiPo battery's and you're set!

I want an off-road one though. I saw a lifted jeep at scheels for 40$ and it said it could go 20 MPH.

It was easy, but mine is set up for led's. All I had to do is glue them in place and run the wiring.

I like eBay for parts, and I've bought all my rc's on there, I like to buy rollers. I also buy from hobby king and a local hobby shop.
