Traxxas makes a good car. But IMO The Team Associated is better.

Can I build a car from scratch? Say just buy a chassis of my choice and build from there? Or do you HAVE to start with a full car kit?

They package the kits and a much better price, I would buy a complete kit and upgrade parts as stuff breaks.

I think I will build from scratch. More fun for me tat way.<p>You can get manualsand parts lists for pretty much any truck/car on ebay.<p>I really like the Traxxas Jato 3.3 Nitro stadium truck. Cant really argue with a truck that will do 65+.<p><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/set1/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>We'll see though, still looking.

I think it was a .12 because they dont make mine anymore... and now they have the Super Nitro RS4 Rally and that has a .15.

So I got the manual and stuff for the Jato. They sure dont make it easy to build from scratch. Its like a damn puzzle. At lest they have the part numbers.<p>
