just picked up one of these little guys from WV Hobbies on black friday. Awesome kit. Literally have to put everything together; ive got maybe 4 hours into it so far, and easily have a another 2 or 3 before its complete, not including painting the body, and putting the wheels and tires together. really pumped on this, and excited to get out and get it dirty

I just picked up a Wraith Spawn a few weeks back and have already ordered new/upgraded parts. I’m fairly new to the RC game but we bought my (4 year old) son a Red Cat car after I crushed his cheap amazon RC crawler with my buggy in Moab (Ooops). After playing with his car for a week I went out and bought my own. They are so much fun but 5 minutes with it and you see what’s needs to be changed. It’s tough for me because I am used to paying soooo much for real buggy parts that $100 on new fancy beadlocks for the RC car doesn’t sting as much. I have had to ground myself a few times and remember that it’s a toy I don’t need to drop $500 on it to have the cool parts (until I break the stock ones of course).

$500 isn’t bad for RC upgrades. Now when you get to the $1500 you have problems... I used to/still have problems.

and thats one of the reasons why i pulled the trigger on the RC crawler. I am at stage 0 on my fullsize build. sold my one-ton crawler earlier this year so i could take care of some stuff for my family. Itll be years before i can get the parts together for it, plus with an almost 2 year old, wrenching time is severely limited. i knew i needed something to build and wheel in my backyard. enter RC crawler
