Default Rtr SCX10 2 or rtr Gmade Komodo

I have been in Rc for over 20 years. Recently I have been into planes and quads. Usually built my own foam or balsa planes and built a couple of 250 quads. I also built my boats before that. Before that I raced 4 wheel touring cars (associated TC) and built a couple of buggies. I don't have as much time or money so am looking at these two trucks. I have read only good things about the SCX10 2. I have not seen much info on the Komodo. They both seem to be capable trucks. I am asking for any advise or opinions. Thanks Steve

SCX10.2 for the sheer reason of being able to buy parts at your local hobby shop. I'm sure the Gmade is a great truck, but if anything ever breaks finding parts is probably like trying to buy a starter for a Lancia Beta stateside.

It's also a super capable truck and on my short list of stuff to buy, the Gmade, not so much.

The Ascender and SCX10 II are both better than the Komodo.

If you read reviews on the ascender you will see it's more capable than a scx10 any day of the week
Plus it already comes with the basic upgrades in like the scx10

I read some reviews of the ascender and it seems to be about the same as the SCX 10 2. Although it seems that the Scx needs less hop ups to be a good runner. I am also looking at value of the rtr set up.
Here is a link to the Gmade Komodo rtr. http://www.rpphobby.com/product_p/gma54016.htm
Ascender http://www.rpphobby.com/product_p/vtr03014.htm
Twin Hammer. http://www.rpphobby.com/product_p/vtr03013.htm

The Twin Hammers is a small rig. It's smaller than an Ascender and SCX10 II. The TH will be better at going fast, but worse at crawling.

Here is a link to the Gmade Komodo rtr. Gmade Komodo RTR, 1/10 Scale 4WD Off-Road Adventure Vehicle
Ascender Vaterra 1/10 1986 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Ascender 4WD RTR
Twin Hammer. Vaterra 1/10 Twin Hammers 1.9 Rock Racer RTR V2
Scx10 2. Axial 1/10 SCX10 II 2000 Jeep Cherokee 4WD RTR
The Ascender and SCX10 II are pretty equal. I'm not sure where you read that the SCX10 II needs less hop ups to be a good runner though. Neither needs any upgrades out of the box.

My thoughts on this, Since you are now down to the scx ll and the ascender you just need to pick which one you like the looks of as a RTR the best. Both great trucks and I can pretty much guarantee that once you buy one of them you are going to be hooked on this side of the hobby meet great people and gain alot of knowledge from this forum and you will end up with both.
Good luck on your decision and welcome to the addiction.

Get ready to sale your planes and other rc's. Scale is so consuming and makes you all warm inside. Hands down the most fun hobby one can be part of. Oh buy the axial brother. Trust me. You will thank me later. Don't buy for the body. You have so many options. The vaterra is a good rig. The Scx V2 is an amazing rig. Good luck with your choice and welcome to the addiction
