HPI Racing Mini Recon RTR 4WD Electric 1/18 Scale Monster Truck w/2.4GHz Radio
This is a great little monster truck, I am very pleased with it except for on thing. The Rims a very weak and crack alot. The outer rim broke off the offset, I can't seem the find wheels anywhere(sold out) for it since it is so new. Other than that I love this thing and think its the best buy I've had!

Great little truck for first time rcers and up. It comes with everything you need (tools, battery, charger, car radio and manual) to get started. Ball differentials are fantastic, and it's pretty fast. My only complaint is the wheels cracking easy (upgrade to rc18 wheels and tires) or glue the cracked parts with ca, it works, and it's not the easiest to get parts for, but most (if not all) hobby shops said they can order the parts. But, you also have the internet at your disposal and can find them with a quick Google search. Most parts are compadiple with the rc18t/b/my 1, don't even try with the 2's. The one thing that isn't (I think the only) is the spur gear. Then associated uses a hex patterned spur while the recon uses a pined spur. But, an associated drive shaft is about $6, or you can cut a grove into an associated and stick it on the pin. Then associated motor plate also requires some modification to make it identical.
