i finally have $1,200 saved up! took about 5 months but i did it (i bought a brand new harley that has me eating ramen noodles for the next 7 years) so saving money is not easy, being that im starting school, have a harley payment and house and insurance and truck don't get the best mileage. but i cannot for the life of me give up my r/c hobby even if it breaks me. so i ask anyone out there who can give me their honest opinion if the KM T1000 is worth hte money?!?! thats kinda my favorite by choice right now. the one i found is $750 with 2 speed trans and 29.5cc motor. the hpi is $1,200 at its cheapest that i have seen. i cant find much for rovan myself. i could really use some good advice. do these things honestly break that easily?!? i really really want the truck design, but the baja buggy i found for $900 has ALL aluminum everything, then you i could convert it into a truck maybe?! i don't know what to do. thank you all very much for the help i appreciate it alot!
