So, what did the OP finally get?

I'm curious, I'd like to get back in the game and am contemplating what I should get. Kraken Vecta .5 will happen, eventually haha.

I have to agree with Whoduh, when it comes down to it, this is a hobby and supposed to be fun. Whether you like turning a wrench or the steering knob, that's what its all about.

I'm curious as well. Heck I'm thinking I need to pick up another 1/5th scale myself. I've got a tuned pipe from NRP that fits the DBXL so leaning that way... maybe it'd fit the Losi MTXL as well!!! :D

LOL This thread is a year old . I have a feeling Woodie may have picked some thing by now . I could be wrong though.

Your answer should have been .... If I had $1600.00 I'd finish this damn 70cc engine !;)
🤣 I know I just answered it cuz I fealt like it😂 also he didnt say "what would u do with 1600" he said "what large scale RC would u buy" in that case I would have said finish my POS 🤣

With your budget I would say go for a Losi 5ive T 2.0 it is a strong truck out if the box and the only upgrades you require are outerwears for crankcase, air filter and Pullstart as well as a kill switch.

The 5ive is a proven platform with a huge number of upgrades available and is very easy to work on.

I've owned almost every 5th scale there is. First you need to figure out what your doing with it, Bashing, racing, etc.

I'm guessing your just bashing, and in that case I'd stick with a losi 5ive-t or a hpi baja 5t/5sc. Parts are readily available all over and there is boat loads of upgrades for either. I would get a losi 5ive-t 2 over the original as it has a better engine and upgrades right out of the box. They are $1400 brand new and don't need much out of the box. If you want wheelies and ok handling a baja, if you want handling like crazy a touch basher or racer go losi 5ive-t

Now as for a vekta. They are heavy as balls, built like tanks and not good for much other than playing in fields. There not really good for a hard core basher or a racer.
