This kit is ideal if you have many spare electronics lying around and are not sure what to do with them. I had a spare castle sidewinder SCT and a 5700 castle motor lying around. I haven't used the system in years and thought about getting something to get some use of these parts again. I am glad that I went with this kit because it handles the power very well and looks awesome once fully built. The kit is made of high quality plastic components and alluminum which give it a very rich feel. The suspenion is terrifi and handles like a dream on every surface. I am using this kit with trencher tires for the street and it handles wonderfully. Highly reccomend this kit for someone who is looking to get into RC but would like to build their way into the hobby. This is a top quality kit too and can be used for racing. There are tons of tuning options on this chassis so it is ideal for that purpose. It is strong enough for bashing too.
