Hi there, there are a few major players. Losi, HPI, MCD and the clone market. If you go to daves motors you can see what they have to offer. Excellent customer service. Also, Losi 5ive Buggy is on sale everywhere for 750.00. Awesome price ~ 200 off right now. Don't know how long it will last. But I picked mine up about 6 months ago and love it. It's a blast!

Thanks guys ! What is the damage report on these before mentioned rigs , I run a lawn service , and I'm wondering if these motors are high maintenance like my lawn tools , like diaphragms n stuff , plugged jets , I read a review on the losi stuff , guy said everything was loose , had to go through it before running , is this a gimme on these things , and one more thing , are you able to put some fat tires on theses things ? I noticed they all come with thin n fast stuff .

With a kit you must assemble it. With any RTR it is recommended you inspect in real good. You can do what ever you want with them for tires but expect to change gearing. The engines are just like trimmer engines so maintenance is the same.

NO. I am familiar with Rovan which is compatible with losi. I don't know anything about sidewinder?
