I keep telling myself NOT to get into RC. I priced out one the RCGirl on YouTube made. $1,000. Without a battery or charger. Easy to just move on at that point.

You don't need to spend a grand on an RC car to have a blast, I've had many of them over my life and have never spent that much. This one cost around 350 and is gas, 2.7h.p., 2 speed, 4wd, disc brakes, and does around 55 mph in the dirt. It can also take one hell of a beating and I've had it for over 16 years.

This one is on road only, gas, 2.7 h.p., 4wd, 2 speed, disc brakes. It does 65 mph in around 2 seconds and cost around 400 bucks. I've had this one for 12 years. Buy a car from a big manufacturer that will keep reproducing parts for years. Start small in cost to see if you like it before taking the big plunge. Good Luck.

We bought this one for my sons birthday in may. He loves it, and I play with it more than I probably should. we did need to make a small pin for the drive joint on onw wheel as the original metal min snapped. And after a new 5000mah battery-pack, the thing lasts for a few days before dead.

For a cheap "TOY" its pretty awesome. Definitely a good starter crawler to see if it is something you would be into.
