Default Old, but new here!

Hello. My name is Carmine, and iv been a RC Addict for over 37 years!! Been into 1/10th Scale since the Grasshopper was a new product! Did 1/8th Nitro Buggies in the 1990's, then walked away from the Hobby for a while....

Dragged back in, 2 years ago, with 1/10-1/9th Scale Trucks, Scalers and Crawlers. LOVE it, but looking for something bigger.... BUT, Sick of constantly having to mess with Nitro!!

SO..... I nearly accidentally stumbled across Videos of 1/5th Scale Gas - I was immediately HOOKED!!!
Only problem there is, they're over $1000 EACH - PLUS Accessories!! I'm a Disabled Veteran of the USAF, and what I get in Disability Pay, WON'T cover any of it!
(HOWEVER, I learned my lesson at the last Forum I was in..... NOBODY wants to hear about my issues, and some will even REPORT me for expressing it!! )
So THIS will be the ONLY time I'll bring it up.

I'm stubborn! I'll figure out SOME way of getting my BIG Buggy!!! I'm looking forward to finding out about what you guys think about the Rovans. I expect conflicting opinions!
At LEAST I have a chance of being able to get one.
Thank you guys!

Rovan or King Motors are fine to get into the big boys. I have both.

I'm not partial, ever. If the quality is there, I'll get it! I just don't want something that I can't share with anyone, because they're Butthurt. The only reason people get on Forums, is to share their work and Experience.
I can get a Rovan 275 Baja, right now, for $399 - NEW with Radio and Battery!

....... Kind of hard to pass up.
