Default Is this truck worth it for $139.99 for a RTR

I am debating on buying this truck. Stormerhobbies has the RTR for $140.

I am looking for something to just goof around with and do some light crawling and winter bashing.

Yes, for the money its perfect, I do recommend some of the hop ups like the steel outputs,and gears, maybe get some extra dog bones, or upgrade to the CVDs.

Yup too good to pass up. I called tower and they couldnt come close to matching the stormer price for the RTR.

I picked it up, should be here sometime next week.

most definitly 140. a very nice price. and stormer hobbies is a great place to buy from you get almost everything a heck of a lot cheaper or just the same as the lower priced places. I order all of my parts from them very good customer service too. oh sorry didn't mean to get off topic
here this will make it all better

IMO its a wicked lil crawler outta the box but stock is for wussys :-P , ive had mine now for a couple of weeks, ive done a hand full of mod's to it and the flex is insane...
ive upgraded to traxxas metal links, longer of course,i can fit now a 1/10 scale body on it, did all metal traxxas links also in the steering,a set of team integy metal ajustable crawler shocks, set of axial bead locks and a set of mashers with no foams in em and of course the freebie mods the left to right knuckle flip and the bottom links moved inwards on the frame.. my only complaint about it tho is the rear motor lag when ya get it on too much of a incline, but nothin more money wont fix next if i could find a hobby shop in town that isnt sold outta them is 10 tooth pinions

Tower Had them for "black friday" for $149.00 I pickded one up with two of the new 1600mah batteries and 2 packs of AA batteries. All for only $176.00 after discount code and free shipping due to being a club member. I hope it will be as capable of my Axial RTR. I finally have it worthy after some homemade mods.
