losi is a great product and at my LHS is 300 no remote/battery...

I would say buy a kit and build it....select the radio and stuff after I bought RTR first and then spent way to much $$$$ upgrading to what the Kit came with

Next purchase I bought kit for sure


lol have a look at Axial Wraith it's a sweet machine




Don't get me wrong RTR for the $$$$ are fun but u always dump $$$$$ in and it's never down the road it's right away lol

X2 on the kit and build it and a decent radio
My rtr scx 10 had plastic suspension arms
Broke them within a week and upgraded to the aluminum arms
The kit comes with aluminum
And had to replace radio in six months

awsome, thanks for all the info guys. the axial and the losi are basically the same price online for a rtr. i know ill upgrade the battery right away and from what i've read the losi needs a stonger steering servo right off the bat (not a big deal). tough decision. i'm just looking for something to play around with in the back yard and camping. thanks again

That's how it always starts,,,

I just wanna rip around the back yard or the camp sight and then


Bammmmmm u strip the steering servo or bend the plastic links lol :-( funs over




When u buy the kit u save $$$ buy kit , build it then but the time your done building u have saved more $$$$$ and can now afford the decent radio gear and steering Servo and batts :D

the axial RTR are pretty good. It was a long time before i did any upgrades.

Now i just have upgraded links, new motor, and steering servo.

oh, and i use my HPI control on it. (use the axial remote on teh HPI)

hpi controler had better control, and i don't need that kind of precision with the nitro car.. its just GO REAL FAST

The Axial Scorpion is a great RTR to start, sure you will break some of the weak plastic links but its good to go. The Axial Wraith is a Beast, just picked one up a few weeks back & so far so good
